The fastest i've ever experienced was about 3MB/s downloading PKR.

That's 12.5 Megabytes per second, a full 4 MBps faster then the OP's download and 2MBps faster then j03's test

They only charge $149.99 per month for this service which I think is pretty good and is very likely to come down with in the next few years
That's the rated speed, not what you actually get.



Beat your upload speed!

why would you say that? You don't even know anything about shaw. Right now I have a 25Mbps package and that's exactly what I get from them, infact I often get speeds of 30Mbps. So if I were to get the 100Mbps package I would expect to get those speeds

People from Georgia Tech known for having the fastest internet speeds haven't had that speed i don't believe

Btw, 100 megabits = 12.5 megabytes

Lowercase mb = megabits
Uppercase MB = MegaBytes

seriously???? There are 8 megabits for every 1 megabyte. That means 100 megabits is 12.5 megabytes.

Also, MB = megabyte, Mb = megabit (small b)
