Hello beautiful. Finally got fiber installed. For my girlfriend and me. Not that we really need it... But you know...

(Wifi reaches up to 170 on 5Ghz)

    Where do you live that residential fibre

    1) is that fast
    2) that fast is sold
    3) doesn't cost an arm and a leg

    @TheCapeGreek Fiber7 is a swiss company and the server he's connecting to is in Zürich which is in Switzerland. So he's most probably from Switzerland. The fiber7 gigabit plan costs 65 Swiss francs (68$) and is only available in urban regions.

    @Aaronmacaron sounds like a bargain compared to prices here!
  • 2
    @TheCapeGreek this is only the monthly price. A year costs 777 swiss francs.
  • 1
    @Aaronmacaron sounds reasonable enough?
  • 1
    @TheCapeGreek what are the prices in your country then?
  • 2
    Europe actually has the lowest prices - be it for Internet access or servers. Unfortunately, not in all countries. In Germany the average is 6mbps for about $50, in Austria there are 100mbps for $30 and 400mbs for $50, in the Netherlands I had LTE via mobile phone (unlimited data volume) for about $20 per month.

    Now, in Portugal, I pay about $40 for 64kbs. But that's more because I'm on the beach and in the suburbs. In the larger cities 4G (LTE) is available.

    @tracktraps Do you live in the middle of nowhere? 40€ for those speeds? That sounds like a rip off (but I live in the city, so LTE and 100/100 fiber)

    @milkbytes Well, I've been traveling around the world in a RV for five years. At the moment I'm in Portugal for the winter. Mobile telephony is the only alternative - except for satellite (about $70 for 5mbs und 100GB data volume + each time $10 for additional 100 GB), which is really expensive. In addition, every time you change the time zone or satellite, $100 is added. Don't forget that you have to buy the satellite dish and all the equipment yourself - or you can rent it for another $50 a month.

    My mobile connection is unlimited data, 300/300 mb/s. That's 23 € per month here in Finland. I think Estonia got it even cheaper. I guess this is some of the good parts of living in Europe vs USA and some other places

    Getting a gigabit fiber here is about 50 €/month

    @vertti What about the weather in Finland in spring? Want to continue my journey after winter and look for the next country.
  • 1
    @tracktraps haha it's probably cold for you all year round here, depending on where you come from. Maybe that's why we enjoy staying indoors with a high speed internet
  • 1
    @vertti Well, right now it's about 27 °C (80 °F) here in Portugal (Algarve). A little warmer during the day.
  • 1
    @tracktraps here it's 5-10 C now during daytime, about zero at night. It'll be subzero soon. Late spring is I guess like this, or early summer
  • 2
    @vertti It's way too cold for me :( Finland is such a beautiful country, too bad it's so freezing cold.
  • 1
    @tracktraps haha yes this coldness is depressing. And it's even the warm season here now. Better stay where you are I'm sure it's more beautiful there. Just secure yourself a better internet connection

    Now you just need a laptop with .11ad! And pray your favorite chair gets a good signal 😂

    What the actual fuck ?

    I want to live in your bandwidth.

    @Wack I'm more jealous of that ping! Or were you testing against the closest server? Also did you just post your real IP?
  • 1
    @tracktraps That's really cool! Still, even when I go camping (I'm a river scout), I usually get at least 3G speeds. You must be in a really remote area

    That's where I'm camping right now. But during the day I'm mostly by the beach.

    @tracktraps Weird, I have some friends in Tavira (it's close from where you are) and they don't have many issues with coverage.
  • 1
    @milkbytes Thanks for the tip. Tavira is almost around the corner, I think ~ 10 miles away. I'll go there tomorrow and see if the Internet is better there.
  • 2
    @LrdShaper I used speedtest.net. If I'm not wromg they usually use the closest server for measurement. And about the IP: well it was back then, now it's another ip. (Plus if I'll get the same ip again, I got a honeypot running on the router ;))
  • 3
    I use FiOS Gigabit!
  • 2
    @milkbytes I was in Tavira today. In fact, the Internet connection is faster. 250-300 KB/sec down, 50 KB/sec up. This doesn't break any speed records, but at least the Internet is reasonably usable and Youtube works perfectly with 480p.

    Thank God I have a RV and can live where I want. Stay in Tavira for the time being - is also much closer to the ocean btw :)

    @tracktraps Nice! While it's not a major upgrade, it's an upgrade non the less 😉

    You could literally download a full HD movie in 40 seconds and easily pull 4K streaming from 10+ devices... I think I just came. Have fun!

    Your DL drops from 930 down to 170 on WiFi? Thats some serious dropage. I get 250 Mbps DL while hardwired and 200 Mbps on WiFi.
  • 2
    @TheCapeGreek You can get gigabit internet in Canada for about $140-$150 CAD (~$120 USD) a month as long as you're around a major city like Toronto or Montreal

    @sslPoodle Google Fiber isn't available outside of the US, unfortunately 😔

    Holy fuck that’s fast.. 💨 I am pretty sure that isn’t Australia! Fuck you NBN!
  • 1
    Can the ping go any lower ? That’s too slow
  • 1
    @dukekiller nope that isn't Straya. It's in Switzerland. But didn't like your old government started to tole out fibre for all which the new one then stoped? I thought I read somewhere that parts of Sydney have fibre connections while other still have slow ones because of it.
  • 2
    Another fiber7 user in Zürich :)
    But Whow yours is fast. I currently have 780 Mbps up and 468 Mbps down... Hmm...
  • 1
    @Dollique what kind of router are you using with it? And where in Zurich do you live (although that shouldn't have an impact)?
  • 1
    @Wack ZyXEL Armor Z1. I live in Schlieren, but I don't think that matters.
  • 1
    @Dollique we use the Turris Omnia, I kind of like the OpenHardware approach, plus access to the Linux System.
    We're in Wittikon.

    @Wack it’s called the NBN. And the gov has stuffed it up as usual. So you get fibre to the local node and it’s copper to your house. What a shit idea! And they are selling this as ultra fast fibre . Shitheads
