This reminds me of the time Apple removed their time remaining estimates on the Mac. Next thing they'll be asking for is to hide your battery status cos that totally isn't important.
How about an AI that compares signal strength over time to other carriers and other Android devices and produces a graph that shows which is the worst (spoiler: cumcast).
But no, that'd be too consumer friendly, like how Cumcast helped delete the worldwide net index that showed which ISPs are the best/worst.
Can't be revealing too much now. Consumers might complain, can't be having that.
You’ll be pleasantly surprised by AT&T fiber. We have had it for about 1.5 years after moving to the area. We had Comcast prior to that. Night and day difference.
Edit: Seeing as this has drawn a lot of comments, here's a speedtest being on day 9 of my billing cycle w/ 600GB+ usage - https://www.speedtest.net/result/7808727971.png. Some people don't trust speedtest.net so I checked fast.com (netflix CDN) and got 580Mbps down, 540Mbps up.
Ready for this sub to rage? I've been working out of the Rogers building downtown Toronto (not for Rogers, mind you):
> Virginia has the fastest internet in America
I'm not sure I agree that Virginia has the fastest internet considering Tennessee has EPB which just announced 10 GBps fiber-to-the-home residential service.
You can have better connection and those forgotten people in caves with 1000ms will still kill you 10-15 sec after you killed them on your screen.https://www.speedtest.net/result/8911857612.png My connection for reference. P2P is horrible and bungie should feel bad for relying on it
To be honest if the low bandwidth streams keep up they are going to have to do this in the UK as well, I'm giving some real thought on cancelling based on the last couple of months.
I'm at 200mb+ down any speed service I test and they keep pushing me onto grainy what look like 480p at best streams and no I pay for the middle package not the basic one.
I don't expect 4k I just expect at least 720p and I'm just not seeing it.
The US also ranks 8th in fixed broadband connection speeds compared toFinland at 40th.
And considering how much bigger the US is and more spread out it is, I would say the US clearly has better internet.
Throw in the fact that according to this article, that is from 2010, all people only have the right to 1Mbps connections. It does say that they'll have everyone on 100Mbps by 2015.... but it's closing in on 2020 and they're only at 58Mbps. Government is great guys!
Ha ha! I wish I had Charter. If you had AT&T U-verse you wouldn't have anything bad to say about Charter. Or Comcast. Hell, my 4G internet from my phone is faster than my AT&T "24 Mbps" on most days.
Edit: Here's my "24 Mbps"
AT&T just rebranded their 4G network to try and 1-up Verizon without actually investing any money in their infrastructure.
Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband
AT&T 4G LTE
AT&T did this with 4G too, back in the day. While other carriers invested in 4G LTE, AT&T rebranded their HSPA+ as 4G, even though it wasn't nearly as fast. They somehow manage to be even shadier than the other big US carriers, don't fall for it
Only if you blindly believe Iranian state propaganda. Trump could declare free 100TB internet for everyone, infrastructure doesn't get created as easily as that.
In reality the US has, on average, the 8th best internet speeds worldwide. Iran has some of the worst in the world with 122 countries ahead of them. Source
> First place Bucharest, Romania is home to super-low ping, a lightning fast download speed and a thriving gaming culture. From Bucharest Gaming Week (which includes the CS:GO Southeast Europe Championship and the FIFA National Tournament) to their numerous local game studios, Bucharest is a great place to be a gamer whether you’re online or out and about.
I was on a gigabit connection so not long at all. A good rule of thumb is to go to www.speedtest.net, do the test, see how fast your internet is. That second number, the upload speed, divided by 8 is about what your upload should be in MB per second. So if you are getting a 10mbps upload speed you'll probably get like 1.25 MB/s so say 100 gigs is what your syncing. Math, math, math, and we've got about 22 hours on a relatively slow connection, 2 1/2 on a 100Mbps, and like 15-20 minutes on gig......... sorry used to work for an ISP.... =P
Link to rankings + some fun rivalry matchups
I'm disappointed that UCLA/Stanford aren't the 2 fastest ones since we're the birthplace of the internet
I don't get it... I mean it's not like anyone would use more dial up modems to increase the blocksize.
Why should anyone restrict their network based on a technology that's almost 2 decades out-of-date at this point?
Heck, [The global average internet speed was 5.6Mb/s] less than 4 years ago. Now it's 10x that
I'd be against a gigantic increase, but I think there's pretty clearly room to compromise on the blocksize without "adding more modems."
Romania, Thailand, France have better Internet speed than the USA according to the Speedtest Global Index. Laughing in Danish that is also higher than the USA.
Engineers in a lab, I'm sure. Regular consumers might have the bandwidth for it, but there are many factors influencing actual data rates, including backhaul, usage, device capabilities, etc. This is probably about as fast as it gets right now: (B66+B46+B46+B46+B4) https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/4988720048
I think you mean Romania.
And leader in Europe is currently Iceland
Holy hell I'm insanely jealous.
Comcast is the only ISP in my area. At $80 / month, I get 3.46 Mbps up. Using Plex from outside the house is a nightmarish joke.
Disconnect ≠ slow speeds.
If you are getting frequent disconnects, stop by the Tech Commons and they can hopefully help clear out all of the previous UCF settings/password/certificates so that you get a more stable connection across campus.
Some areas of campus still have slow WiFi when it gets overloaded with too many people all trying to connect in one area while all trying to watch netflix, youtube, facebook, whatever else. If you are having speed issues, complain to the UCF Service Desk at 407-823-5117 and let them know the exact location, time of day, etc that you were having the issue. Providing the results from speedtest.net or from speedtest.ucf.edu(unfortunately requires Java for now) might also be useful in helping them troubleshoot. You can also try complaining to the college of whatever building you are having problems in since department funding can sometimes be part of the reason why WiFi is spotty.
> Germans are comparatively slow on the Internet. According to the latest Speedtest Global Index, the Federal Republic of Germany is currently ranked 31st with 69.4 Mbit/s in the ranking of the countries with the fastest Internet access. This puts Germany in 25th place compared to 2017 and 2015 with 22nd place reached, worsened again.
> The Americans also enjoy fast internet. The USA ranks 8th with 117.3 Mbit/s.
Damn, and before I moved to Germany I thought US internet was already pretty mediocre.
Sites like www.speedtest.net optimize the test to get you the highest result possible; essentially they're trying to find out what your maximum speed is.
It's not a real world scenario.
Google's test will more accurately measure what your speed to their servers will be.
The US is 33rd for average *mobile internet speed globally, which is decently high given the low population density.
*We’re 9th for average broadband speed.
For my own internet I'm getting 78/6 with 11 ms ping. I think I pay for 75/5.
Any reason you didn't go for Visible? $25/m for unlimited everything. Also a $100 Virtual CC after 2 months. They are also on Verizon so you'll most likely get the same speeds as Xfinity Mobile. I've been on it for a little over a week now. Service and speeds have been brilliant.
Example speed test result: https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/5605330950
this is the site yo'ure telling me to use. Usa is 7'th on the global speed index there with 120.30 Mbps
Wich means the country everyone complains about having slow internet is one of the fastest according to that data.
Looks like you're all the way down in 91st place despite being over 16x smaller than the US. Imagine bragging about getting better internet speeds than Bubba in Montana.
Broadband improvement hai. Broadband speed nahi. Speed to abhi bhi China and US ki nearly 7 - 30 times zyada hai.
here. ki kahin zyada hai. And I dont think that India has an improvement of 18.8 Mbps. I think its average speed is only 18.8 Mbps and that too, not everywhere. https://www.speedtest.net/global-index/india
According to non ookla resorces the average speed of broadband in India is 6.5 Mbps which seems to ring truer.
Man, after ~~weeks~~ months of no dramas with my customer, they've had everything fall over yesterday due to a VPN issue on their side, then first thing this morning, it looks like they've lost access to everything that we supply them with that requires a licence.
Just as I was gonna chuck a sicky.
On the plus side, the NBN guy actually came at exactly 8am this morning and was gone in about 15-20 mins, leaving me with a fully functioning service. Looks like even the switch from Telstra to ABB has gone smoothly!
Theoretically work from home demand shouldn’t come close to 1080p and 4k streaming demand at 9 shouldn’t it?
I’ve been doing intermittent speed tests all day all week and I’ve seen nothing different to usual speeds.
I’d like to add though the 4G network might come under more strain. Some companies are giving employees 4G dongles (paid for by company) to work from home. But Australia’s 4G network is great to start with anyway.
NBN: https://www.speedtest.net/result/9154523055.png Everything normal
4G: https://www.speedtest.net/result/9154528504.png Download normal but upload bad. Though I could check back in ten minutes and get wildly different speeds.
I can't believe they expect me to wait 17 whole minutes to patch the game dude. So unfair. =O
Europe is way ahead of North America.
I have fibre at home and truly unlimited LTE at nearly 150 Mbps for 20 USD / mo.
What American ISPs and carriers are doing is basically unprecedented in the West.
Well I went ahead and left my Internet 600 for $70/month to the Gigabyte plan for $115/month with a $100 bill credit. Here are the speeds after my first run.
I’ve hit over 300mbps on T-Mobile LTE. I don’t think matching those speeds will be an issue once they receive sprints spectrum, if the merger goes though. https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/i/3568450514
When I moved I went from Comcast's fastest package at the time, 250 Mbps down and 25 Mbps up, to symmetrical gigabit and the internet now feels like an extension of my own home network. I don't have to use any traffic management rules at my router anymore, I can just let things go without any speed limitations, and everything else using the internet can't even tell I'm doing anything. I fully support everyone should have access to good symmetrical fiber connections, DSL & cable really do feel old after having fiber.
I'm on CenturyLink's price for life package for $65/month after taxes and fees.
Agree, Fiberlink 500 de la Digi, nu pica, nu limiteaza, ba chiar uneori primesc 750 mbps. (nu am afiliatii cu digi, doar am avut ocazia sa incerc si digi si romtelecom, am tras concluzia ca digi e mai ieftin si mai bun, asta in regiunea mea)
Granted a speed test isn't a true test of reliability, but the only time I haven't gotten those speeds was when my modem got a problematic firmware update.
Ok did this guide for AT&T routers on fiber, and now we're cooking!
Only question is, can I take off the AT&T router now /u/silvenga?
Getting 863/852 bypassing the router.
Look at Mr fancypants over here with 5-10 megabit upload speed. Meanwhile in Australia.
Good thing this isn't a speed test taken in the capital city of the country, that would just be depressing..... (Kill me).
Well, according to Ookla, the average mobile download speed in Afghanistan is 6.29mbps and upload speed is 2.70mbps. keep in mind that back in 2012 only between 5-10% of Afghans had internet though, and the download speed was around 0.56mbps, and wealthier, more westernized and technologically-savvy Afghans are likely to use Speedtest, and foreign military bases that use Speedtest may influence the results. Also, obviously the Taliban are not often residing in undamaged developed areas, so they will likely be using mobile or satellite data, which has much higher latency. Also, more tech-savvy members would probably have installed proxies or VPNs on their devices to avoid monitoring of their traffic and location by enemy forces.
Additionally, the vast majority of Taliban grunts would not have access to the internet at all, as the Taliban leadership sees it as a vector of Western corruption and immorality.
Data is gathered based on people who run speed tests. The chart's accurate title should be, "Average speed of users who decided to run a speed test while on their network."
We should know, and account for:
1. How many people ran the tests from each carrier.
2. Why are they initiating the tests? (New area? Slow speeds? Etc.)
3. What are other carrier speeds in similar locations at similar times?
4. Where were the tests run?
I could go on and on, but aggregating 85 million speed tests run from an app to provide an overall performance score is pretty lame.
FTTN. Connected last week. It all depends on your distance back to the node. Mine is approximately 392m.
Once your area goes live, you can go to https://futurebroadband.com.au/sq/ and enter your address. This will tell you what NBN estimates is possible for your address and so far I’ve found it to be accurate within 1Mbps over a few tested connections.
Also I’d suggest going with a high quality, highly skilled and transparent company such as Aussie Broadband.
If you like, I can assist you along the way and answer any questions you have. In exchange I’d ask that you use my referral code when signing up for Aussie Broadband so that we both get $50 credit. (I’m handing out my mums referral to get her a discount).

Right let's take a look at this that tracks the amount of active 5G masts globally. Lets look at the UK and, more specifically, Scotland... since we're on r/Scotland.
There are only 14 active 5G masts in the whole country. The exact same number as there was at the beginning on the pandemic. So it doesn't look like there is any rush from any of the mobile providers to be upgrading the infrastructure during the pandemic. The number for the whole of the UK, 204 masts, has also remained the same since the beginning of the pandemic.
>or part of some plans to further an authoritative agenda, endgame being similar to how China operates?
How does one make the jump from "mobile technology that allows you to browse the web on your phone slightly quicker than on previous technology" to "iTs ThE sTaRt Of FaScIsM"? Gonny enlighten me because I just really can't get my head around that at all.
>Please show me the "public records of the money being given to these companies". I'll wait.
no need to wait long.
here's a brief summary of the money we've given telecom companies since <strong><em>1992</em></strong> that was intended to have provided the entirety of the country with fiber by the year 2000, along with sources.
seeing as most of our major cities don't even have an actual fiber network 20 years after the target date, you might be able to make the connection that half a trillion dollars worth of infrastructure hasn't been laid.
please, babe, do explain where all these hundreds of billions of taxpayers dollars went during years of already profitable business with no real infrastructure improvement to speak of.
>I also look forward to seeing how the US does not have a "modern network"
uh, sure. let's go check some unbiased speed comparisons.
what's that? the US doesn't make the top ten for average broadband speeds worldwide, and doesn't even crack the top 30 for worldwide mobile speeds? whaaaaat?
the other issue that the US has is that we have a massive rural population that isn't getting anywhere near "average" speeds. our average speed is about ~130Mbps according to the above speed tests, yet we have nearly half the country trying to get by with less than 5Mbps.
how the fuck do you think we have a modern network when so many people are relegated to internet speeds DSL owners got nearly 30 years ago on literal telephone lines?
...lemme guess, you think the Super Nintendo is still bleeding-edge tech in 2020.
Not because their is partially true, mine is entirely untrue. In most of the first world, internet speeds are increasing greatly, both in speed and in reach. A small percentage, or certain countries have ended up staying behind the curve. How does that equal "internet not getting quicker"?
Both are absolute statements. And if we are talking averages, given he didn't specify in the slightest, he's just plain wrong. https://www.speedtest.net/global-index
That's just not true. I routinely get slightly above the speeds advertised by my ISP for the specific speed tier I pay for, as do many others that post here. I pay for a 50/5 line and, even though I have lots of little services that constantly check things on the internet, and am currently listening to a track on Mixcloud, I still got speeds over the 50/5...
I have it. (yay, cause I was paying $105 for 15 mbps) I just did a speed test and got 67 download and 13 up. https://www.speedtest.net/result/8438840784 I then did a speed test on my phone and got just about the same 65 up 20 down. Do a speed test on your phone, the tmobile internet should be pretty close for speed.
Hijacking this since its at the top - sorry.
But OZG is AMAZING, I've had it for nearly 6mo and never had an outage. I have my router & modem hooked up to a UPS and even when my power goes out, the internet is still up and working. With COX I was having weekly outages and high packet-loss.
With COX I was going over my 1TB limit every month, with OZG I'm using nearly 5TB monthly and they dont have any issue with it, I love them. They also dont have any restrictions on what you can host from your home (At least that I know of)
Here's a speedtest I've taken
OZG is peered to Dallas, KC, and Chicago meaning you'll get some awesome pings to any data-centers in those areas. I get ~15ms ping to any data-center in Dallas and 30ms to Chicago. It's amazing. I couldn't recommend then enough
centurylink symmetrical gigabit, no cap.
speedtest to sandy fiber:
speedtest to centurylink seattle:
speedtest to comcast Sacramento, CA:
920 down / 970 up
1ms Unloaded / 3ms loaded
It's always nice to hear some praise once in a while :)
For me it's practically indistinguishable: with and without the VPN. Being relatively close to big exchanges helps quite a bit!
For comparison, I'll add that I've had CenturyLink gigabit fiber for the past year, and it's been rock solid. $80 a month. If you can get it, jump on it.
Colorado Springs, CO.
This was a Speedtest taken as requested by T-Force due to ongoing speed complaints. I’ve been shaking their cage since APRIL of last year.

Check out my Speedtest result! How fast is your internet? https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/4431071485
This is fast enough for my Reddit addiction, downloading of music and watching the occasional video. I'm not racing torrents on this connection.
> the internet completely disconnects (Has highest signal but not really connected to the internet)
-The strength of the wifi signal doesnt tell you how strong ur internet is. It only tells you between your laptop and the router.
-Sometimes its not etisalats fault. Sit with your laptop next to the router with cleat path and test the speed using speedtest.net and using fast.com. Someitmes steams servers cant give you the full speed.
-Another thing to do is change the wifi password and make sure no one using the network is torrenting or consuming ur bandwidth. Check for old wires and if ur router is old replace it with new one.
Denver is a tough market for all the carriers due to non-contiguous spectrum.
T-Mobile has 10x10 LTE on AWS A block. In November 2015, they refarmed half of the F block from HSPA+ to make another 5x5 LTE channel, leaving the other half of F block for HSPA. We also then have 5x5 on 700 A block (B12). All of the PCS band is still GSM/HSPA+
We have seen some reports of carrier aggregation starting to pop up, but I think it's a site by site basis, and not across the metro area because I have yet to see it.
Realistically, you should expect about 5-15 Mbps in Denver. Ookla's speed test's show that T-Mobile is the fastest, but if you believe Root Metrics, Verizon is the fastest (although I've never been able to replicate Root Metric's findings).

If that's the case then I'd really not be surprised if it's speedtest.net who are redirecting you themselves. It's easy for your ISP to redirect you by just messing with their own DNS, which is why they'd do it that way if it was them; hijacking your actual traffic is a lot more work for little added benefit.
Try going to https://www.speedtest.net (ie use HTTPS instead of HTTP in the URL). You should get one of two results:
If it says connection refused, or your browser starts blaring security warnings, then your ISP is probably attempting to hijack connections with Speedtest; or
If you end up at the site you're already seeing, then Speedtest are probably voluntarily redirecting you themselves.
EDIT: And /u/TheBigLowBowSki was complaining that we suck because other subreddits give free IT advice. I guess we've shown him!
Boy oh boy, i love seeding, its my way of giving back, it makes me feel like i dont just leech. A lot of the times i torrent shit just to seed. I keep them till a week of total seed time which in most cases results in like 5-10 ration.
But i also torrent anime and shows. And i keep seeding them till i finish watching them. When i rewatched atla i seeded 250gb. Ik some seed even more but im doing the best i can.
Fortunately for me i have no cap, and id say pretty good speeds
Speedtest is great, though I wouldn't use WiFi to test the provider's speed as it introduces a lot of variance to the measurement. Congestion, access point capabilities, phone capabilities, and interference can hamper that measurement.
For example, my phone is currently connected at 200 Mbps to my WiFi so the Speedtest.net app reports 115 Mbps (200 Mbps link speed means 100 up and 100 down) but a wired client a minute later reported 355 Mbps.
Always run provider speed tests on a wire.
Not necessarily. I personally have seen as high as 362Mbps on Low-Band n71 and I usually get over 300Mbps.
5G supports a feature called ENDC (E-UTRAN New Radio Dual Connectivity) that allows 5G and 4G to be combined together to get super fast speeds. In fact most 5G networks only work when combining 4G with 5G, T-Mobile's 5G SA network is the only 5G network that can operate without 4G.
T-Mobile usually aggregates 5G with LTE bands 2 and 66.
Low-Band 5G has a theoretical maximum speed of 218Mbps assuming 2x2 MIMO, 256qam, and 20MHz channel width.
LTE bands 2 and 66 both have a theoretical maximum speed of 391Mbps assuming 4x4 MIMO, 256qam, and 20MHz channel width.
That totals to a theoretical maximum speed of 1Gbps with Low-Band 5G and ENDC with 4G.
In my area T-Mobile has 15MHz n71 as well as 20MHz b2 and b66, that translates to a theoretical maximum speed of 944Mbps and I usually get 300-350Mbps.
OP's speed test could be either Low-Band, Mid-Band, or even mmWave.
LOL fiber? None here on Kauai.
Hawaii Telcom DSL here. Pinged Eureka, CA. at 120ms 1.89 Mbps down 0.69 up. results
OP, You know you posted a 3 year old article, right?
Freedom(shaw mobile) still has a pretty much trash network. Sure they offer 25 gigs, but you can never use it given the state of their network.
They don't have the spectrum, towers, or backhaul that Bellus has, and it shows big time if you are a customer, with your phone either roaming or dropping to 3G only, and constantly needing airplane mode toggles to re-attach to LTE.
Freedom is consistently reported to be the worst performing network in Canada, and no matter how much marketing shaw throws at the problem, they are still not spending anywhere close to what telus and bell are on wireless network build and it shows.
If you look at each of the big 3 MD&A they are spending ~250 mil a quarter on network build and shaw is only around 70.
Volgens elke bron die ik kan vinden klopt dit niet.

Anyone who hasn't bothered to look at any of the 5G distribution maps which clearly reveal that, say, there is no 5G in Iran, and proceeds to spout off this nonsense is still a certified idiot, though.
Given Stadia Base will be basically a free virtual console that has the gameplay capabilities of a PS4, why would there be an assumption that games would be discounted in general on top of that? And this article doesn't even mention that Google did state there will be discounts for Pro members (what that means I don't know... could end up being terrible discounts, but nevertheless should be noted).
I dunno, I feel like 90% of people writing articles or posting online just trigger on the word "Stadia" now and doesn't even try to look at the benefits. Like the fact that the Base model is free so you don't need to buy a console to play new games, or that you can use it with mouse and keyboard on ANY computer / tablet for people who travel around but still want to play games as long as you have semi decent internet, or that it literally eliminates P2P gaming/lag issues because the hardware to hardware connection is on Google's side now. Hell, I even see people complaining about latency and internet speed all the time, even though Google had a 40 minute conference mostly going over how they combated latency for Stadia and the average internet speed for the US is over 90 Mbps.
Whether it's Google's fault for doing a poor job on explaining their product, or just people not liking things changing, I don't know...but this feels almost the same as when the Nintendo Switch was announced and everyone shat on it without actually having an open mind on the product.

There are a number of diagnosis tools embedded in OW. To use them:
Now there is a number of things that can go wrong and how you can detect each issue:
- If FPS numbers are not stable over time OR GPU temperature keeps rising beyond limits for you card, something might be wrong with your GPU settings or hardware (e.g. a fan not working properly leading to overheating). I have similiar HW and settings and stay in the 60deg range.
- If you keep seeing three dots instead of one behind the FPS number, this is the famous reduce buffering issue. Uncheck + check (toggle x2) ther reduce buffering setting
- If SIM value (3rd value in top row of network graph toggled by CTRL-SHIFT-N) is not stable around 10 ms (which you should have with your settings), a hardware issue or unwanted guest software issue is likely.
- If ping is unstable (in normal game not test range): Your internet connection is affected. Check router, cables and your ISP perforamnce with a tool like https://www.speedtest.net. If ping or DL/UL rates are fluctuating by say +/-100%, it might be an ISP issue.

Speedtest, just now: https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/d/f9231fef-f3f6-4de0-ad58-dc20e3e607f7
$80 a month, no caps, unlimited data...
I regularly get accused of cheating while online gaming due to the low pings, shredding others and I don't cheat.
I upload huge videos to my wife overseas on Google Drive, usually in less than a minute.
I had Cox Gigablast DOCSIS 3.1 before and it was great downloading, but the upload speed were capped at 35 Mbps. Uploading was a painstaking task and the gaming latencies were horrible.
I did have to spend a little money upgrading all of my switches, cables, router to Gigabit in order to take full advantage of the new speeds. I used the Ubiquiti EdgeRouter Lite.
I'm really bummed. My wife returns in December and her condo in UTC doesn't have AT&T Fiber :-(((
it's more about the lacking infrastructure on Sony's part imho.
If you take a look at this you can see that out of the top10 average, only 3 of them have PSNow.
Ok I'm going to send this speed test result because I'm not trying to get 4k netflix on a tiny phone and I'm not unreasonable when I say my phone speed is slow...
It ain't 980, but 920-940 is pretty solid: https://www.speedtest.net/result/9781261405
I just ran OpenSpeedTest on two separate devices on my network:
Device A: (OST's 'Seattle' Server): 930mbps / 120mbps
Device B: (OST's 'Albany' Server): 950mbps / 800mbps
There can be quite a bit of variance on these tests to external servers due to a number of different factors relating to your ISP or the servers used for the speed test.
I just ran a speed test and I am getting 194 down (higher than normal) and 6 up (normal), with normal ping. No noticeable lag or disconnects while working from home or playing PS4 on personal time.
Edit: download the Ookla "Speedtest" app for your phone or use desktop browser and go to https://www.speedtest.net/ to test. I noticed that I occasionally connect to a server in Corvallis and my speeds take a nosedive, but when connected to Portland, I'm normally fine.
How fast is it and who's the provider? With that info we can probably tell if that's in the ball park. https://www.speedtest.net/
Anyway sounds reasonable if it's a mid-range or higher plan with one of the big providers, especially if it's not bundled with cable TV or phone (internet connection by itself is more expensive).
Only since December. We use it in a RV and needed to find something to use a lot of data while in Mexico for 2 weeks. Probably won’t keep it as we won’t use the RV again until summer. 2+ months away. We have Verizon postpaid and I have an iPad/hotspot line that’s only $10/month but after 15GB it slows to 600kps. Which is fine for most weekend trips we take but the 2 weeks over the winter it’s not good enough.
Speeds are great. Post paid priority for first 22GB. In my home area I get 100Mbps+ and most places while driving is 20Mbps+ even after 22GB.
Here’s a Speedtest while in Vegas about 4 blocks from the strip sitting at about 35Gb usage.
Can’t relate. Not saying Verizon is bad, but in my areas T-Mobile has packed lots of network upgrades so it’s the best for what I’m doing and where I am.
In practice, I managed to get more than 50Mbps for my Internet occasionally, of course in Tanjung Tokong. Like this one which I took last month https://www.speedtest.net/result/8286457842.png Pretty impressive download speed I must say.
Yep, even out to international. Obviously not as fast, but still very decent. With pretty much every major content provider using global CDNs, international speed isn't relavent anymore, except connecting to Sydney as that's the closest final hop for many CDNs and service providers (like Amazon/AWS, who do not operate in NZ).
Here's an example speedtest to Sydney from Wellington, from my mobile (via WiFi) connected to a stock ISP-provided router, and I'm a room away from the router.

Proof since I'm always asked for it. haha
It's a daily occurrence for me to get 400/40, so download speeds 4 times better than the max most people can get on the NBN.
Yes, we get to keep it :)
This is what I'm getting at the moment via WiFi for reference
There is already LAA+5G aggregation being done, for example here is a comparison between the Galaxy S20 and the OnePlus 8 Pro on 5G n41, the OnePlus 8 Pro can aggregate LAA with 5G but the S20 cannot, which is why the OnePlus 8 Pro got faster speeds in that test. I think that since that testing was done the S20 has received a software update that enabled LAA+5G but I'm not sure.
Picked up a Samsung S20 FE the other day and just got the 5G turned on.
I've only got 4G coverage in my house, which is not bad, but if I walk maybe 100 metres away just by the shops, I pickup 5G, which is somewhat better.
San Antonio here (78213); Netflix went to a pretty atrocious bitrate; if I went to fast.com, speedtest was 1.8Mbps (oof), but if I went to speedtest.net, it was sending me to a server in Victoria, TX (and gave me ~400Mbps). If I manually set it to Sprint in San Antonio, it dropped down to ~2Mbps again.
As I type this, I am seeing on fast.com:
Earlier, I did see it pop up to 40Mbps, then crash back down to 2Mbps again; uploads were 200-400Mbps the entire time, so it's only downloads. It feels like something is wrong in the routing or is congested.
Edit: Tried speedtest.net again, and it auto-selected the local San Antonio server on it's own and speeds are back up now as well:

(not a shill) I have Comcast gigabit internet and I consistently get real close to that benchmark. If you own your own modem or router, it is possible that that is the problem. When I first got it, I found my router was preventing the higher speeds. Also, if your modem does not support DOCCIS 3.1, you will not get the speeds either. It is also possible that you live in a bad cable run area like an apartment complex.
I'm in West Brant too and my plan is the one just below yours Ignite 500 and I just did a speed test at Ookla and have a dismal 26.22 Mbps download speed
https://www.speedtest.net/ as I said it's only at night
I read somewhere that T-Mobile is using a 3:1 configuration.
Edit: From this article on speedtest.net about T-Mobile's n41 5G in New York and Philadelphia it mentions:
>When taking into account the 3:1 TDD frame configuration (75% downlink 25% uplink)
I’ve never heard of the speedtest website you’re trying to reach and I’m not sure why you aren’t just using a normal speedtest to check internet speeds?
Also, you don’t even need to use a “speedtest” to check your download speeds, you can go into “Network Connections” in your control panel and check the status of any network you’re connected to, although it’s less accurate than a time based speed test.
In my personal experience University towers had pretty decent WiFi and Ethernet when I lived there a few years ago (not the best I’ve had but far from the worst).
Hey I recognize those pictures (I think I took most of them)! (and my truck)
Full Disclosure: I don't work for Ziply, but I helped them out with this restoration (specifically I built the temporary WiFi network that was the ONLY form of communication out of Detroit Lake until we got one of the cell towers back yesterday). It is an amazing story of a lot of great people doing everything they can to make a horrible situation slightly less bad.
An immense shoutout to the Ziply crew (and management). The company clearly cares about the service they provide and their community.
I went to Detroit Lake on Sunday morning and I just got home to Hillsboro last night late. I will likely be going back out here again shortly to install an AC UPS unit on the WiFi gear since it is currently running direct on generator and will drop immediately if the generator fails of the ATS operates (like when commercial power is restored or we switch to the roll-up generator to do preventative maintenance on the fixed in place generator). Do note that everything else in the CO is on 48v DC plant of course, the WiFi gear is just temporary.
P.S. The WiFi is hands down the fastest Internet connection Detroit Lake has ever had. ;-) We plumbed a gigabit transport circuit back to a router in Beaverton as it was the fastest thing we could get working. The WiFi tested out at about 350 megabit symmetric.
Regarding the dsl speed you might find this interesting.
In general and comparing to other european countries, dsl speed in Greece isn't very good.
Well, you can judge for youself lol. This is my speed: https://www.speedtest.net/result/10075319084.png
But I live near Delhi, maybe it won't be this high in other places. As for uptime, it never goes down and internet quality is excellent.
So the main issue you are probably having is with your upload speed. If you have a retail internet connection the advertised speed (50mbps in your case) is the download speed. Have a look in your contract or call your ISP to know how much your upload is. You can also use https://www.speedtest.net to check your effective speeds. Unfortunately there isn't much you can do about this. The one big thing that could help is to not use foundry to stream music (not sure if you were doing so in your game or not) as that uses a fair amount of bandwidth.
Its the same benchmark as the article
The two benchmark tests, conducted using Ookla’s Speedtest.net service, show Starlink achieving a 102 to 103Mbps download rate, 40 to 42Mbps upload rate, and a latency of 18 to 19ms. (Note: Ookla is owned by Ziff Davis, PCMag.com's parent company.)
The short answer is that we don't need to. Normally you synchronize gradients because you have several copies of the same layer on different devices. This is how data-parallel training works. In our case, that would indeed take ages.
Instead, each "expert" (layer) is only stored on one peer. So, the experts only need to send their outputs, not their gradients. Furthermore, these outputs are only sent to a small subset of peers. You can find the same approach in this (awesome) paper (GShard) that train 600B-parameter Mixture-of-Experts on 2048 TPU.
In practice, this allows us to reduce bandwidth to more manageable values † (see below), but the latency is still high.
In turn, to combat latency we perform hogwild training. In other words, when a peer waits for remote experts to process one batch of inputs, it can prepare another batch. Since each batch is processed by different sets of experts, these asynchronous updates affect different parameters and cause little to no interference on one another.
p.s. thanks for the question, we should've done a better job explaining it
† With transformer-big layers as experts, we could fully saturate a 2080ti with ≈500mbps with fp32 activations, ≈130mbps when sending qint8 activations. The quantized version is already realistic for broadband in some countries. For others we should at least be able to run at ~50% of GPU utility -- with an added benefit that we don't overheat someone's hard earned graphics card.
I have the G5 15 with the Ryzen 7 4800 and 8GB of RAM and 512GB Nmve. The first thing I did was purchase two sticks of 16GB DDR4 3200 memory because the 2 sticks of 4GB (8GB total) is not enough. How much memory is your laptop using when you are playing the game? I wonder if that's your bottleneck. The game itself recommends 8GB of RAM and that's not taking into account that you're trying to stream while playing it. Also the game requires a broadband internet connection so it's going to be using bandwith and streaming also requires bandwidth. This could also be a bottleneck. What is you're internet upload speed (www.speedtest.net) Don't just look at the maximum upload speed but watch it and try to come up with an average. Then measure how much upload bandwidth your using while playing the game. Now do you have an extra 1-2MB to spare for you're OBS stream? The laptop should be more than enough for what you're trying to do... except maybe the total RAM you have installed.
Top-ul de la Ookla (Cei care se ocupa de speedtest.net) cred că are relevanță mai mare, acesta fiind actualizat destul de des. Pentru moment suntem pe locul 5. https://www.speedtest.net/global-index#fixed
If you do a lookup of the Speed Test ID with Ookla, it shows that the connection was with Rogers.
Also the IP address is registered with Shaw Communications, and not Freedom Mobile. Freedom's IP addresses will show up in the registry as Freedom Mobile or Globalive, for older IPs.
OP is lying to everyone, and edited the image.
