Default Re: Your broadband speeds

Which company do you use Xiggy?

I use Freedom 2 Surf at the moment - 2MB broadband, but if I could be bothered to upgrade I'd get 4.5MB.

Moving to BT soon

This is the speed you are connecting to the modem, not the internet.

I have a 5 MEG connection (Sympatico) and our family pays 31$ a month for it due to employee discount.

However I am not getting much over 3.5 meg

I Just upgraded from 2.0mb/s to 3.0mb/s for free from verizon not too long ago. Last time I tested it I had 2.8mb/s and i can tell the diffrence in downloads, but not that much at all browsing. My family pays $20.00 a month for it.
