    Well, at least YOUR internet reached up to 2 1/2 MB/sec download speed....my internet can't even reach 1 MB/sec...Just be damned glad that your downloads aren't AS SLOW as mine.

    Yo guys, speedtest.net measures in Megabits not Megabytes. 2.48Mb per second is more like 248KB per second.

    Australian Internet, lol. Internet IS the Internet, there aren't any different "kinds" of it. Your transfer speeds are negotiable with your ISP and you get what you pay for.

    I've got a little over 10Mb/s DL and 2Mb/s UL and I pay around $12 for it monthly.

    Damn I pay $100 a month for 40gb each on peak and off peak and get about 8Mb/s DL and around 1Mb/s UL. They charge so much for so little here.

    Errata on my end, I guess my brain went on a trip with a time machine yesterday - the U.S Dollar no longer costs 3+ Zlotys, D'uh! I'm actually paying $22, which from what I noticed here is *STILL* a steal.
