Actually, that's not as bad as I expected. It's usually pretty terrible here -- and I pay extra for a "faster" connection.

I have service that is slowly closing down(no new customers). I pay 55/mo for 384k d/u,unlimited, but I'm regularly gettin 1.5-2x the speed as other users switch. Slow, I know, but was much more affordable than 150-180/mo I was paying for cable modem when I signed up.

I use my cell phone for internet access. It's never seemed terribly slow to me. Youtube videos usually load more quickly than with my former DSL service.

We have cable tv/internet and it varies between about 6M download and 15M download. Plus the service overall sucks. I had a lot of outages and downtime so I started keeping a diary. In a 10 week period our internet failed at least 17 days.

A former co-worker in the Denver area subscribed to Comcast's "Extreme 105" service recently and sent out the results of a speed test that showed ~114Mbps.

huh - I really don't have an issue with my laptop internet (t-mobile - it varies from 3-4G) - and it's freaking way more faster than my work computer.

this seems odd. hmm

I was just about to be done with speed checking. Signal from the pyramid was half way to my location and then it hit me. Thought: "Why the hell do I need to display my internet speed? So I clicked X.
