    Thats pretty nice but what do you do online besides posting on DP?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I work since I'm a web devleoper.

    But as an entertainment thing, I can watch youtube on 1080p or 1444p without having to wait for the buffer. I can download stuff fast. I can upload stuff fast. Big internet speed is never a disadvantage.

    I pay for 7Mb/s and I'm getting 7.4Mb/s. That's plenty fast for me.

    I could get up to 110Mb/s service but I can't see any reason why I would need that. And it would probably cost about $200/month.

    This. If you look at the countries (and one city) that top the list, they're all considerably smaller than the US is.

    Personally, I'm satisfied with my 30 Mbps internet service. It meets my needs.

    It's our large vast rural areas that drag down our average speeds here. If you notice, Canada has similar slower speeds in comparison.

    I get 35 mbps, its fast enough that I can download large files in a few minutes.

    It costs me about $30 a month or so.

    But what I have noticed is that my internet moves faster than most websites, so often the bottle neck isn't on my end.

    This thread is depressing. I pay $70 a month for 24mbps. Based on speedtest.net, I usually average around 14mbps.

    I hate AT&T.
