What's your connection speed?

Who is your ISP? and what is your connection speed, and what recommendations can you give for changing ISP's.

I'm with Virgin Media, and my connection speed is 4mb, Although i'm getting a free upgrade sometime this summer to 10mb.

Although Virgin Media cap your speed during peak hours if you go over the download limit, they are very good with keeping to the advertised speed.

Today i also bought the Belkin N1 Vision Wireless Router, which should arrive tomorrow Smile I'm a sucker for good looks, see the attached image below.

Wow, that's quite an impressive router there. I have been settling with my standard blue Linksys WRG-something for awhile. It only support wireless-G so a wireless-N router would be something I'd love to upgrade to.

Anyway, my internet connection is with TimeWarner. After being forced to use DSL in several of my older apartments, I am pleased with using a cable connection now. My connection speed is anywhere from 1.5 mbps to 2 mbps at a time. Since I am living on a tight budget supporting myself I can't afford the upper level 10+ mbps plans. Though it is safe to say that I am using just the right amount of speed for what I use the internet for.

Just so you know, I am hunting down that model for prices here in the states. I've never seen it before and I can see my Linksys wireless router becoming jealous. Smile

There's one on Amazon.com for $128. CLICK HERE

Although i'm not sure if the above is for ADSL or Cable.
Ah, they are running a nice sale on it too. If only I had the $128 to spend on it right now. :ermm: I always run into good deals when I don't have the money saved up for it. I'll be content on settling with my Linksys for now. Smile

Now thats one good looking router. Not sure on my speed but its always really high. i was downloading CS:S on steam and the first notice said it would take 4 hours at a certain speed but i got it done in less than 90 mins. but dunno if that means anything.

I have 2 mbps right now. Payin 15 a month for it. I'm gonna upgrade to Virgin Though... around 10mbps, and I'll probably pay the higher rate for the unlimited download factor.

I don't know... Virgin seem the most cost effective. And, since I don't download anything, it's OK.

Wait... so they can like fine you randomly for anything? Or just downloading. Cos if they can fine you for lookin at porn, chris is buggered...

well if you actually took time to read you'd find that he didnt switch. and a few posts above you said you were going to pay for unlimited downloads and just now you said you don't download so make up your mind.

they only fine for illegal downloads ie pirating music/games/film and Brazilian fart fetish porn.

Actually, VM are really good for keeping your online activity private and don't snoop on people, unlike Sky.
I recently use the 512MB connection of the wireless connection of the wateen. I am totally satisfied with the my internet connection performance. So i am not interested to change my net connection.
