★ Before the mods move/merge this topic, let me explain the purpose of my intentions. We have a sizable user-base that never EVER posts outside the Music Section of these forums (or even cares to look outside this congestion for that matter). Without being verbose -- The purpose of this thread is to gather data on the financial status of every person that frequents the Music Section. Since we have an international clientele that visits these forums.

★ Here's the instructions of this topic: Post your internet speed. That's it, period.

★ Keep it civil ~ actually limit the discussion to zilch and just post your internet speed. If you wanna flame someone for whatever dumb reason you like pls use another thread to discuss idiocies like piracy - anti-piracy - and love or hate of music genres artists & songs. (I bet this thread's gonna get zero posts haha!)

tl;dr -- Post your internet speed. YOU the guy/gal who's lurking these boards with a diabolic grin on his/her face... if you want that is. Enjoy! happy.gif

I'm an information technologist; you give me a drop of intelligence on any subject & I'll find some mischievous good use for that data. But believe me ~ I believe any & everything should be recorded for heaven above to see ... much like Mr. Snowden's ideology, who's just a year older than me. Go see that movie shifty2.gif I still haven't. Now, back to internet speeds shall we. awesome.gif

Except the speed highly depends on your location. Only one kilometer away, in the town's center, I'd get around 18k without paying more.
In the past, I had 1k download without being poor. But our provider choice was just shit.

I still don't really get the point.

In France, you have 2 option : ADSL or Fiber optic
If you're living in a big town which have both, you can choose which one you want.
But if you're living in a village, fiber optic is still unavailable...

There's no ulterior motive to this thread ~ an ISP speed test discloses also more than meets the eye. Anyone's welcome to post their bank account net or work salary if they wish, but that's a bit unsafe, and doesn't provide the same info a speed test does regarding a user in a multi-national forum like IDW. happy.gif

It's just interesting information to me; That's all I can use the data gathered in this thread for... save to solidify some random thoughts.

99% of the users on the Music Section have never posted what their ISP speed is ... to me it's just very interesting what a specific user says his or her internet speed is.

I really hate my ISP.

user posted image

Contracted speed is 300Mb down / 300Mb up FTTH (Fiber To The Home).
It's around 100 each month (with landline and 2 mobile lines included, and a forced VoD TV service).

(Long story; there you have all the financial info you asked for, xiao)

SPOILER


Summary: Don't have a doubt about it: Africa begins in the Pyrenees (however, I don't recommend saying that in a geography exam).

There are other ISPs, but we don't feel sure about changing provider. Prices are always high in Spain. As an exception, there are really affordable providers, but they usually have coverage limitations. In spite of my bad feelings about Telefonica, we may consider that it really has advantage in that sense.

Tho it's still a jipp ~ 50 bucks for 30 Down doesn't seem too bad, it's a bit more than the ratio my city-locked ISP Time Warner gets us here in the middle'o the desert. I was paying 75 USD for ~50 Down a month ... yeah ~ fuq'dat ~ I'm waiting for Google Fiber to take over the world in 3099 AD...

Seems like Spain is pretty much in the same situation as Germany. Differences here: The German Telekom is holding the de facto monopoly and is not willing to make FTTH possible. They do everything to not lay fiber cables (like forwarding a technique called "Vectoring" which basically shuts down other ISPs but was declared as legal) while they're still the most expensive ISP, though.

However, it's possible in Germany to end the contract if you permanentely have less than half the speed you pay for because they bring too less service for your money. Maybe it's possible in Spain too.

I'm very sorry to discover that there is people in a situation worse than mine. I feel sad that I had not been told your story before.

I say 'worse' because it seems that at least we are going to have wide access to FTTH in my place. I don't think Movistar is upgrading our intallations because of a different reason than the one why DT has the behaviour you explained, though.

Lately, Movistar has been purchasing the copyright rights of multiple sport competitions (football, F1, motoracing...) and taking over payment TV and VoD services (Canal+...), and is offering these contents in their own VoD service (which is forcedly included in all of their offers).

So, their purpose is no other than to continue with the monopoly. However, in my case it seems that the customers will be offered more services.

I don't know. Luckily, I have never found myself in such situation. As far as I know, it should be possible to quit unless the contract forces continuity (then, you have to pay a redemption).
