Virgin Media's 60Mb package. Can't complain about the down speed, up speed is still rubbish but the best so far.

For once, my laptop Intel AC 7260 card doesn't act up, and I get my full speed...

I have the fastest possible connection I can get: 100/5 over EuroDOCSIS 3.0. In theory it's possible to go way higher. Wikipedia tells me 200/120 is possible.

I guess us cable subscribers get shafted on the upload because my ISP is working to replace their aging copper and cable with fiber. Their fastest consumer tier for FTTH is 100/10. Why they can't sell 100/100 or higher is beyond me... it's ridiculous. But it's the best you can get in this area. And obviously they want to steer people towards FTTH instead of docsis.

A portable Huawei LTE hotspot from Sonera, showing 4 out of 5 bars "4G". I don't think there's any HSDPA+DC in my area so it's probably proper LTE.

Nice! I'm waiting until it happens automatically though. BBR forums say one can get it now through some hoop jumping (signing up for Verizon's rewards program which actually sounds kinda cool) but we've been out of contract for a while now. That and we're on the 15 Mbps plan so its not like we're super impressive uber power users or anything lol.

Woah, what plan are you under? That upload is unreal! Here's mine...
Verizon Fios - Long Island
You may want to check My Verizon to see if its available to you yet.

Basically what Rick is saying, VZ is increasing uploads to be in sync with download. They have this thing that if you go to their site and then go to your plan page it will say "sign up for rewards and receive speed increase" all you really do is just put in your birthday and you get an instant bump. Otherwise they will bump ya in the fall.

Thanks for the tips! I did it and now waiting to see if it improved my upload...

I could get 1GB for $10 more a month, but I figured I wouldn't really utilize it.

Yes, and no network expansion planned for the future. It's the fastest that's technical possible here. <_<

I'm a little bit envious about pretty much everyone here.:( But slower than 80% is really something bad, considering I'm living within the city, not in a small village...
