    I think my work has 100Mbps for 50+ people.

    I am getting fiber at home. So work is slower.

    It must suck to have two downloads and no upload

    I've just _upgraded_ to 100/40...!

    are you folks srsly crying about 100/30?!

    you want to cry? 50/12. cap!
    you want to cry harder? some places here don't even have 16/2.

    I have Gigabit up/down. But I don't know laravel, so I'm not using the Internet nowadays.

    @rootofskynet I don't have fiber yet. My current internet is like 2Mbps. It drops to 600Kbps when I run out of bandwidth (20GB).

    @Demolishun lucky you. I still have to wait for that announcement.

    but these numbers are just sad..

    @rootofskynet Yep, we have competing fiber networks. So its kinda nice to actually have fiber companies competing to be the service. City isn't really that big either. Like 50K people.

    Starlink is not an option I guess? ^^

    @rootofskynet Here two miracles at once: not only that my 100/40 is in Germany - it's working even with O2! ^^

    @Fast-Nop and here goes a "what the flying duck" to that..

    @Fast-Nop I thought you needed low O2 cables? Or is that just audio?

    Well..

    I don't want to brag, but in one of the larger cities in the area here, 100M is one of the higher speeds you get. I'm lucky to be one of those to have this connection speeds. But, if you live a bit outside of the bigger cities you're mostly outta luck. The houses and the roads are old and the carrieres/ISPs are just lazy dumbasses (at least i think so. Had my... "Experiences" with 'em). Mostly you do have copper underground with all it's capabilities and limitations. The only way to get fiber is to build your own house and hope that you are able to lay fiber at the last mile, or to be lucky and chosen by the carrier/ISP to get fiber. But things that are said and things that are done, are 2 different things. Trust me.

    @Demolishun Nah, O2/Telefonica is the provider with the worst reputation here. I wouldn't have changed to them, but they bought my previous provider.
  • 2
    @Fast-Nop You just brought up some bad memories. I had an internet provider in a rural area. They got bought. The new provider started dropping packets as a way to throttle my connection. Biggest asshole ISP I have ever used.
  • 1
    @Demolishun That's why I've never signed up for hostage style contracts (2 years minimum and shit). I can quit my ISP on a monthly basis. However, things are good, and cheaper than Telekom, so I've stayed with O2 for ten years already.

    @Fast-Nop cheaper than the mighty Telekom? not rly an effort tbh. :)

    3/.5 here. Suckers.
    I changed it by March tho', but it'd been like that for years.

    @rootofskynet where are you from located? Man internet is slow there? I'm located in Asia. As in Asian monkey

    @Fast-Nop my current ISP hostage style contract is 3 years lol 100Mbps unlimited for $63 per month 🤯

    @Devnergy I get you, but there's a point where you get easily limited by the servers themselves. I have a 1 Gb/s connection and I think I've only once reached my max DL speed on Steam.

    @Devnergy Germany; I live in Bavaria at the moment.

    @Devnergy damn that's expensive. If I ever moved to the states, I'd want to bring my own Internet with me.
  • 0
    @electrineer yeah expensive. We are not a first world country. How much usually is the internet price there with 100 Mbps speed?
  • 0
    @Jilano yeah I think pCloud limits it's upload speed because I have 35Mbps upload and the only max I can get is 1.2Mbps lol. Wish I had researched more about pCloud. Damn that tempting lifetime deal. Well I hope that lifetime deal can last a minimum of 4 years 😂
  • 0
    @Devnergy In USA in my area 100Mbps can be anywhere from 85 to 150. Where for some reason all the fiber solutions are around 55 to 85. Which is really strange IMO.
  • 0
    @Devnergy starting from 5 € per month. In rural areas you might not get that speed with a physical connection but 100 Mbps unlimited mobile broadband can be had for less than 30 euros.

    @Devnergy Whenever you see a "lifetime deal", go the opposite direction.

    @Jilano RIP to my $350 lifetime deal. Goodluck to me.

    Well I wasted more than that in games. So stupid me sigh
