Download Speed: 2.431 Mbps (2431 kb/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 0.38 Mbps (380 kb/sec transfer rate)

My landlord recently doubled the speed of my connection, to this. But only after I've been complaining to him for several years about how slow it was. It only cost him an extra $5 a month. I wish he would see fit to cough up another $5 and double it again, but I'm not complaining. This is way better then it was.

If speed is a concern, you might be better off going 4G if it's available in your area. Personally, I couldn't live with those speeds.

A lot of people here have low upload speeds. I'd personally give up some download speed for some more upload speed.

I get a pretty consistent 10 Mbps download from Suddenlink, which is what I'm paying for. But occasionally it drops down, and is only about 5 today.

I'm not really complaining about it. Because 1. I don't have to pay for it. 2. I just want something fast enough to watch videos without it having to buffer. Generally this speed will do that. I still have bit a problem watching HD videos. But even those don't buffer too much. Upload speed is pretty slow, but any big uploads I need to do, I just do that while I'm out, and not using the connection anyway. 3. It's a pretty reliable DSL connection with a stead speed. If I had to pay my own internet, I'd probably get a 6 Mbps DSL line.

Cool. I wish I had internet at your rate of $0.00!

Pretty much differebt sites give me different speeds even when done repeatedly. Mine does veryhtig I want including streaming video perfectly. That ios all that matters to me as my DSL was much slower but still upto what i did before streaming to my HDTV.
