What is everyone’s home internet speed?

Fri Apr 02, 2021 12:40 pm

I saw a few You Tube vids about Starlink, and the comments got me thinking. There is such a wide range of home internet speeds around that people find normal/enraging/frustrating or whatever.

What is your current speed, latency and cost in $ for your home internet, in which part of the world, and what kind of connection is it?

Using a T-Mobile 4G hotspot with 100GB data for $50/mo until cable is laid in my development. Speeds are... usable but not great.

Starlink is a phenomenal option for rural areas.

Standard Comcast internet 40-50$ per month, effectively 30 megabit download (4 megabyte). It’s fine. In my case a new WiFi router made a bigger difference than the bandwidth itself.

I have the 500mbs broadband from Virgin Media, but I'm still to actually see those speeds.

But I'm not complaining, we stream data to a LOT of devices in our home and we never have any lag or problems.

Paying for a 300/50MB line, receiving 337/72, 10ms latency, fibre, USD 40/month with no limits to download/upload, Denmark. Will shift provider as of May 1st, which will lower cost to USD 30/month for a 1000/300MB line.

That could me, except switching in june. People in my building find it scandalous we are currently only being offered 500/100 as maximum.

250Mbit down, 25 Mbit up cable including cable television 68 Euro in the Netherlands. Not the cheapest option (glasfibre is cheaper), but very reliable which is necessary for working at home fulltime.

At home, just on the southern edge of the North Yorkshire moors (UK) I get 24mb down and about 8mb up, I don’t pay for that one, work does.

At the farm, in the middle of the North Yorkshire moors (where I am at the moment) I get 4-8mb down and 1-2 up, it’s quicker on 4G but the signal is sketchy. All on EE.

For reference, this is a picture from today to show why even with very slow internet the farm is worth it.

I'm on a unlimited 100/20 plan (my RSP has temporarily upgraded me to 100/40 for six months) on the Australian NBN network (FTTN) for 89.95 AUD/month.

I just got 83.1Mbps Down/31.6 Mbps Up with 7ms latency on a test. But have achieved as high as 102.1Mbps up.

With the NBN network FTTN is the worst fixed line technology the fibre runs to a node, which then uses the old copper from legacy telecommunications lines, which can be as old as 80 years in some areas which quickly degrades performance so far that certain RSPs will only offer max 50/20 plans for FTTN connections.

I'm fairly lucky that the node is only across the road so the copper only has to run about 60 metres, on copper ~40 years old. I'm able to get around 100Mbps down the highest possible plan offered for FTTN connections. If you're lucky enough to live in area with FTTP (Fibre to the premises) or HFC (Hybrid fibre coaxial) you can get gigabit plans.

ADSL2+ 20Mbps/1Mbps for 45€/month

Since that's not enough I have added a 4G routeur, with a regular mobile plan that when owned in conjunction with the above is cheaper (16€/month) but more importantly has unlimited data : I get 60Mbps up/down. It's really unlimited, I've downloaded more than 1TB in a month without restriction.

My provider has laid fiber in my street and sent a team to connect my house, however something is wrong underground so I need to figure out what the problem is (or pay for someone to dig). When I have that figured out it will replace my ADSL, for the same price I will get 8 Gb/s/700Mb/s, a cool 400 times faster connection.

1Gb/s synchronous dedicated FTTH, southern Germany, €89/month. It's a business line since I work from home, so basically my company pays for it.

Variations here are huge regionally too, especially in rural areas. Those lucky enough to have optical have insane speeds, while some are still crawling along with ADSL at sub 16Mb/s speeds.

I guess it’s a combination of geography demographics and the required investment in infrastructure. At the farm the nearest other house is 400m away and the exchange on copper is well over 2km.

At my home it’s a village of ~200people and the nearest village is 2km away. We have fibre to the village but only copper to the house. In theory each connection could get 36mbps but it’s 500m to the cabinet so drops to 24.

In terms of demographics the age of the population in my village is very skewed towards the older end and those who don’t really care about high speed internet, 20mbps is enough to watch HD content, make video calls with grandkids and do emails, what more do they want.

It just isn’t worth the providers efforts to put in the very high costs for infrastructure for those who mostly don’t care.

For reference, an installer working on the farm said that it costs around 40k(gbp) to put a whole new connection to a remote location, why put 40k in for the return from 1 property when they can spend 5k and get the revenue from an entire street.

Im with Virgin Media Ireland on 250MB for €49 a month no phone or TV just the broadband. I could get 500MB for €10 more but not sure its worth it. I never get 250MB unless the iMac is plugged directly into the router. I have a few of those VM branded range extenders that work through the electrical sockets so it covers the house and garden . The engineer did say that because of multiple devices and security cameras it is the best I can hope for unless upgrading.

Plus not caring for higher speed. My parents use internet to look up cooking recipes and get Signal messages from us kids. They wouldn´t spend an extra cent to go beyond the ~10/2 they effectively get right now.

I am only having 100/40 instead of 50/10 i had before because the upgrade made it cheaper ...... speed wise i was totally fine with what i had before.

300 Mbps down/50 Mbps up with IPTV services, all for the princely sum of 215.95 Malaysian Ringgits, or $52 a month. On average, I can get around 200/50 if I stay close to the router, but for some reason my computer in my room at the back of the house can only get up to 90/50, even on WLAN. I probably need to replace the cable.

US-Michigan Comcast 400 Mbps + TV - $117 including taxes, fees and surcharges. 24 month contract, I think only few months left. We hardly use TV, hope to find better deal or more speed at renewal.

My NBN Connection is HFC, which is the old Foxtel cable that was originally laid back in the mid 90's. Before switching to the NBN, I had a cable internet connection, which was a similar speed to the NBN. Have noticed though that speeds have picked up during COVID, with WFH.

Currently getting around 55Mbps down/17Mbps up with a 10ms latency. Though currently have a PC & a TV on a streaming service connected ATM, so that is probably affecting speeds.

Yes,
I am guessing there is a lot of difference between countries with incentives for infrastructure-project for the common good and those who leave it all to capitalism.
But I fail to see how it can be social-economical benificial to a society to let rural areas be left even more behind, and strangle inovation and entrepeneurs with a connection problem.

With 1 apple-TV streaming 4K content, the usual HD smart box left on, 2 kids online-gaming and streaming from youtube at the same time, plus me Zooming, downloading media files, transmitting simoultanious HD-Audio and backing up at the same time through the day, the wife doing her honeoffice work, and a phletora or IOT-devices having a ping and firmware-update party at the same time, it isn’t that much headroom in practice on a theoretical 500mbs line.

But it’s not just capitalism, at some point someone has to determine how much they want to invest (government included) to establish what they want to achieve, here in the uk there is a target for ‘super fast’ internet to something like 90 or 95% of homes. At some point all homes/premises will get it but you have to start with some and it’s clearly best to go for the low hanging fruit.

I (and most other people) don’t own a 4K tv, in fact I only have 1 tv in the house. My household has a couple of tablets and a couple of phones. I’m not a heavy media user from my pc either but do work with computer with the one drive for work and it never struggles to be up to date with keeping files up to date and spend 40%+ of my day on video calls.

I can see that for some a 100mbps+ connection may be needed but I don’t think that that is in any way required for a modern household.

30mbps download, unlimited data. AUD$90 per month, including a cable TV PVR and a limited range of cable channels.

It’s not unknown for us to be streaming in 4k to our TV, plus another gaming online,
Plus another watching a movie on their laptop, plus 2 or three of us on phones. Rarely an issue.

Yes, very true. Same here really, we are a village of just under 400, the big pink T said it's not financially viable to lay fibre for such few users. So the local mayor being a smartass asked who would want fiber, plus he always wants to attract small high-tech businesses and startups. Result? Pretty much everyone wandet fibre. So everyone agreed on an installation price and chipped in their part, the community added another 40% (tax money well spent IMHO), all the farmers got out their big excavators and in a matter of 8 weeks the main fibre line was already installed and connected to the nearest backbone link (of course not one from the big pink T). As soon as all the house connections were installed too everyone quit their T conctracts of course :lol:

This is why a strong regulator is needed. My area used to not have fibre internet, even though the housing estate just a few metres up the road from me have it. After my entire neighbourhood made up a fuss with the federal regulator (I even got a personal telephone call from the telco company, advising as to the status of my complaint), we got ourselves fibre internet.

Interesting, usually fibre cables are run on existing electric poles, particularly in remote areas.

This is in Germany, we don't do poles here. All wiring/plumbing/installation is underground. More expensive, sure, but doesn't look fugly and there are no large scale blackouts when there is a little wind or snow ;)

A friends dad got so sick of the internet being slow he organised this for the valley in which he lived, in the end one of the remotest farming communities in the uk ended up having one of the fastest internet connections in the UK and ended up having a group of expert installers to go about doing the same elsewhere.

http://www.signa-uk.com/moorsweb-network/ back in 2006 they had a 30mbps connection.

This is in Germany, we don't do poles here. All wiring/plumbing/installation is underground. More expensive, sure, but doesn't look fugly and there are no large scale blackouts when there is a little wind or snow ;)


If the underground system is well planned there is no need for farmers to bring out excavators.

Just today I upgraded my router from a decade-old model to a newer one. Instantly went from about 7 mbps to peaking around 85-ish. Earlier this week I was getting a whopping 1.5 mbps before a network reset. It pays to keep your equipment up to date.

I'm waiting to see which "Internet At Home" 5G service will roll out first to my address. I have signed up on the notifications list of T-Mobile and Verizon.

There are some WILD regional variations here. I am pretty shocked Sub-100mbps are still such a thing in some parts of the western world.

I guess it’s a combination of geography demographics and the required investment in infrastructure. At the farm the nearest other house is 400m away and the exchange on copper is well over 2km.

At my home it’s a village of ~200people and the nearest village is 2km away. We have fibre to the village but only copper to the house. In theory each connection could get 36mbps but it’s 500m to the cabinet so drops to 24.

In terms of demographics the age of the population in my village is very skewed towards the older end and those who don’t really care about high speed internet, 20mbps is enough to watch HD content, make video calls with grandkids and do emails, what more do they want.

It just isn’t worth the providers efforts to put in the very high costs for infrastructure for those who mostly don’t care.

For reference, an installer working on the farm said that it costs around 40k(gbp) to put a whole new connection to a remote location, why put 40k in for the return from 1 property when they can spend 5k and get the revenue from an entire street.

In the US, it is a combination of infrastructure issues (in rural areas). At our vacation property, in a very low population area, there is still fiber going down country dirt roads. So mostly, the main issue in the US is a dysfunctional law enforcement structure around antitrust issues. The Yale law school graduates who work at the DOJ refuse to prosecute their classmates who work at the big corporate monopolies. They are all friends. So we pay.
