My (ADSL) network connection got a speed increase at beginning of this month to 8 Mbit/s and the price fell to 19.90 €/month. It seems that now 8 Mbit/s is the slowest wired connection you can get here in Helsinki.

The connection options here are now:
Wired ADSL: 8 Mbit/s (19.90 €/month) and 24 Mbit/s (35.90€)
Wired Cable Modem: 10 Mbit/s (24,90 €/month), 40 Mbit/s (35,90€), 110 Mbit/s (44,90€), 200 Mbit/s (54,90€)
Wireless 3G/HDSPA: 3.6 Mbit/s, 16.90 €/month (unlimited data & usage)

So I got interested what kind of network connection options you got around the world. So I thought I make a internet connection speed poll here. Feel free to discuss!

i dont know what on earth we're paying for (apart from the fact that its AOL, so it stops working every 1/2 hour), but here are my results from speedtest.net

maidenhead server (closer, but not as good a server)

london server (further away, but a better server)
http://www.speedtest.net/result/866958319.png (http://www.speedtest.net)

so i went for the 4-8 option

This is mine, upload speed is terrible, should be at least 2-3 mbs. Runs me about 30$ a month.

Im just paying 50% of how much the internet actually costs per month. Because I still live at home with my parents and Im the "main"-user of the internet. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif
I think I pay around 10 or 12 €, cant remember exactly. Sorry

well, hopefully when i go to uni it will be improved - i'm not sure of the exact details, but pretty much every year someone mod's the internet connection at reading university so that, when you want to, every single internet connection on the campus is routed to you.

i cant remember what the speed was quoted to be when they did this, but apparently a blu-ray box set would only take a few minutes

I am confused... The little icon on the bottom corner of my screen reads 100 mbps. Am I getting 5% of the speed I payed for? Or is that something different?

the little icon i have alwys says somewhere between 40 and 60 mbps.
i think this is the speed you have between computers in your network. so if you wanted to transfer a 100mb file from 1 pc to another it should only take a second or two

I just noticed that you get very(!) different results when testing with different servers.

I should have 18Mbit/s downstream, I think it΄s 45€/month incl. Phone.
Depending from what server i tested Speedtest.net told me 8Mbit-12Mbit http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_confused.gif

I΄d say the normal download speed is more accurate then such tests: 1.1 - 1.3MB

Please note that this is through my iPhone. I use a Verizon MyFi 2200 for my XBL connection and for some reason it is usually twice as good except for the upload speed which remains the same.

Usual ping is around 100 and down around 1-1.5Mbps.
