My Cox cable internet costs $41.95 per month. I am suppose to get 9 MB/s down (with powerboost up to 12 mb/s.. whatever that means) and 768 kb/s up.

My upload speed is always higher, and my download speed usually is too (except for sundays when it is down to 7mb/s)

I just did a test at http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest though... I was pulling 20.3 MB/s down and 3.3 Mb/s up. Not bad! now if only I can get that all the time.

Soooooo... how fast is your internet and what does it cost you?

DSL 1.5mbps $26 Qwest for life price, not a shared bandwidth like cable, but this is the fastest package I can get right now in the country. But, to be honest it is pretty fast and I watch streaming video's and listen to music online all the time with no problems or stuttering.

http://speedtest.net is my favorite website for testing.

I usually get close to 1.5 down and around 800 kbps up

Yeah, I have used that site before too.. I like that it provides your ping time as well.

800 kbps up is pretty good for DSL. My dad lives out in the country and his only option for high speed internet is mobile broadband or satellite.. He opted for satellite. I am not sure what his download speeds are but I know it costs like 50 or 60 bucks per month and I bet his upload and ping sucks.

He has been so used to using dial-up for years that the satellite internet is great to him.

Which never, ever translates to real world speed.

Business DSL.

I'm getting ripped off here in Iowa. I pay Mediacom $65 a month, and what do I get? Most days 3mbps down and about 178 kbps up. On some rare days I'll get 6.5mbps down and 700 kbps up.

I've been waiting for Qwest or some other DSL service to come to our area. I don't understand the hold up since you can get Qwest DSL 2 streets behind ours (they put it in there almost 3 years ago now). I wouldn't get as good maximum speed, but I'd get a solid equivalent to what I mainly get with Mediacom and it would cost me about $25 less a month ($300 a year). I could use that money for more home theater stuff!

I've had Verizon FIOS since early 2006. I started with the 30Mbit down / 5Mbit up package when my company was paying for it, but I've since dropped down to the 15Mbit down / 2Mbit up plan. I pay $50/mo for it.
