What is your Internet Speed?

100/10 Using Spectrum in rural, Central Ohio where the Amish communities begin to live in the state. I pay $70/month (blah). I usually get the stated speeds, but there are occasional drops in the late evening, usually for 30 to 90 seconds. The only competitor is DSL at 10 Mbps.

From a cellular perspective, things are pretty awful. Only Verizon provides somewhat reliable service, but in the rural areas it’s usually only 2 to 3 bar LTE or nothing (some isolated spots with 3G or 1xRTT). We are a long way from ever seeing 5G style services. You have to download audio content when traveling.

Watching MBKHD’s latest video on low band 5G, it seems similar to what I currently get on LTE.

5G here in Australia is being rolled out in the mid band first, but is very spotty right now.

By over it, you mean space telescopes beyond the Starlink satellites’ orbit :grinning:

Slow, but it gets the job done

I can watch YouTube videos without buffering, make Google Voice and WhatsApp calls, do Facetime/WhatsApp video calls and keep my cloud services in sync.

I moved house late last year, from an area that had fibre to the home (with quite good speed) to my current place which is served by a wireless internet provider.

My cell phone company has reasonable (for us) speeds in most urban areas in the country.

I pay the equivalent of $10 per 10GB of data on the cell plan (there are various plans available) and $30 for “unlimited data” from the ISP

33 mbps. I’m in Mexico City.

Damn dude I pay $50 a month for my 10GB of cell data, similar speeds. I’m in Guam.

Looks like I’m getting a bit more than what I pay for. Can’t complain about that.

Your image is broken…

On Fast.com, my MacBook Pro says 37 Mbps, and my iPhone says 110 Mbps. Comcast, $60 month in Florida.

Speedtest.net on the MacBook Pro says 36.8 up and 5.36 down.
