Wow, my sub 20Mbps with faulty line (disconnects a lot) could do with an upgrade! Thats only 20,000 times faster lol.

savvy with 1Gbit? Sure, but we need SSDs to catch up with it.
1000:8= 125 MB/s ... I'm sure your SSD can keep up with it;)

The best actual bandwidth from my ISP is 12 Mbps, so I don't even utilize a fraction of my 1 Gbps router. They're really milking me at $87 a month for that 12 Mbps as well.
Same here only mine is 8 Mbps 🙁

Jeepers, my 24MBit (theoretical, get around 18Mbps) is £20 a month and thats expensive here! They are really scamming you.

yknow what the IEEE really needs to focus on? Moving the Internet to ipv6, not some Ethernet advancement that, if Im not mistaken, is faster than a single PCIe lane. I see this being ideal for servers but home users wont be able to take advantage of this for several years, especially when you consider the growing usage of wifi.

Ipv6 is already been used since a few years now and have nothing to do with this awesome standard. There is no ipv4 addresses left to buy but you dont need a new one to provide wi-fi services. Wi-fi use private addresses to provide internet.
The adoption rate of IPv6 is horribly slow, and I have yet to encounter a website or web service that I know uses IPv6 (I'm sure there's several out there but I don't know what they are). I'm aware how wifi (or LAN networking in general) works, but local IP ranges aren't the problem - as you said, there are no IPv4 addresses left, and that's a serious problem for a world-wide system that multiplies itself yearly. I'm sure one thing that would help to regain IP addresses is if people in apartments agreed on paying for 1 high-speed connection and use a single router. I know of some apartment buildings where pretty much every resident has their own internet connection. Though, I'm not sure what IP range is depleted (not every single IPV4 on the WWW is used up) so there's a possibility my idea is pointless, aside from the fact that it might save money if everyone pitches in.

lol *sighs, looks at speedtest results, laughs hysterically. Wonders when UK will catchup with the rest of the world*
Better to have whatever speed you have with a reasonable upload as well so it doesn't artificially throttle your download. I have a 28Mb/s connection, but just like everything using cable here the root provider is Rogers Communications which cap uploads at 1Mb/s, meaning if you're uploading the slightest amount they throttle your download speed. So not only is 28Mb/s ridiculously slow, but uploading at the same time is near impossible.

Dunno how it is in the UK, but you should call your ISP for a Telecom technician. I was a telecom technician till over a year ago. Seen a fair share of faulty lines and quite alot of those telephone lines were actually physically damaged outside of the customers house and had to be repaired. If that's the case, in Belgium they dig a hole near the damaged part and then repair it (which could take up to 2 weeks though since they need to get the plans and other documents from the city). The actual repairing process usually takes about 1 afternoon to a day.

Its being dealt with by my ISP (BE). Basically, all of a sudden my router will disconnect every few minutes and it will do this for a while, then it stops and everything is fine for days. 2 BT engineers have been round and done a whole battery of tests on the line and found nothing wrong at all. They have replaced the master socket and filters too. BE have monitored the line from their end many many times. They gave me a new modem, that didnt stop the problem. They replaced the hardware in the exchange. They have reduced the line speed, but it still happens. Its so intermittent, they just cant catch it. I've tried connecting different phones to the line. My case has been running with them for about 4 months now and they have really tried hard. Its just a b'stard of a phone line. I also have friends call and sometimes the phone doesnt ring. Grrr.

In Canada, most people would be in shock and awe if you have a 150 mbps residential line, so no, not even close to a gigabit. Maybe this will help persuade ISPs to give us Canadians at least a gigabit access :P? deltatux
last i checks USA/Canada are behind the times japan/china get 500mbps for less then most of us pay for 50mbps unless that was internet rumor started by some government official. There was an article about this month? or so back on Gamespot With some Government official saying this

Are u using the modem as your router as well? Because the modem which ISP's deliver are kind of... well crappy in the router departement. I've had a few cases similar to this, copper tests all fine, xDSL error testing, fine, just random disconnects or reboots of the modem. One of these customers was a programmer working at home with a **** ton of open VPN connections. I solved those cases by turning off the ISP's modem router function and using a stand-alone cisco, d-link, ... router behind it, using the external ip (bridged connection, PPPoE is being done by the router behind the ISP's modem). In those cases, the user was just putting to much stress on the router functionality of the ISP's modem or just a bug in the firmware causing it (MCafee had a bug with some Sagem modems). Also get a seperate power socket for the modem just to make sure (no coupler). If you haven't done that yet, give it a whirl.

It's also easier for Europe/Japan since alot of areas are more densely populated. It would probably work however in the US for areas like New York though.

I live near the heart of the greater city area and this crap is what I get: http://www.speedtest.net/result/2620653014.png It's artificially bloated as well by "Turbo" nonsense, the real speed is 28Mb/s or 3.5MB/s. There is no up side: 1 - It's not consistent, early mornings (2am to 6am) when Rogers Communications do maintenance it goes down without warning and by the time you contact anyone to complain it's back up and they claim it was never anything on their end. That does not mean it comes back up quickly, it sometimes goes down for hours at a time. 2 - The cost is ridiculous for the snail speed and constantly goes up, it's something like $15/m more than it used to be, no competition means Rogers decides the prices. 3 - It's bandwidth capped, but luckily I get it through a reseller which gives a 300GB limit rather than 60-85GB. 4 - The support might as well not exist. Any time any of you think your internet is crap, just be happy you're not in Canada.

According to that article it had nothing to do with they cant it was more of they wont and dont want to, they would never want to offer 500mbps for that price why would they want to they would lose money and even if they did they would want to charge 100$ if not way more a month seeing most place want 60$+ a year for just 15 or 50.

It is a modem/router, I feed a single network connection out to a switch. The problem is with the line itself, the old modem was tripped up by it periodically as well, that modem used to crash quite often due to the disconnections. I've tried different power sockets, also there is nothing else plugged in near it. Everything here is clean as a whistle now. The line is under investigation, the case is being held open for 2 weeks. One thing that contributes sometimes is, the phone filters allow the broadband signal to be heard. When a filter is plugged in from cold, I cant hear the modem. A day later, I can and then it sometimes causes the modem to disconnect when I use the phone. I've tried a TON of different filters and BT installed a new master socket with filters, they do the same as well. I've also seen this happen round other peoples houses. I dont mind this though, I can put up re connections when on the phone. However, even with the phone+extension completely disconnected, other modem disconnections still occur. My phone line hates me lol.

There are rare cases where splicers have to fix a line that at a first glance doesn't show a single error. But in those cases I had to call in and answer a buckload of questions and it was basically a last resort thing as they had to send an expert splicer and not the normal kind. Splicers are also quite costly for the ISP so hence why they're usually the last resort 😛 You could put a RJ11 socket on the intro cable and plug that into the modem and get a really long UTP cable towards the switch (you won't be able to use the phone for a while). Use that for a few days, that'll defo make sure it's not the cabling in your house (and after that they might also be more likely to send a splicer xD).

In practice (not in lab situations or in theory), densely populated areas and cities really do affect it. More cabinets, more exchange points, more cables, ... the end result is that the distance between the customer and the source is just alot smaller whereas in rural areas it's just not worth the expenses and they're pretty much stuck with dated technology (gets replaced eventually but at a slower pace) or distances that are just huge.

Or in any rural area in the US? I work at an ISP where the average connection is 1.5mb/.384mb. These are people who have the choice between dialup, wireless, or satellite. They can only dream about a 30mb connection.
hah I with verizon dsl 10+ years in flood zone So lines in the area are crap, my 3mbps connection regularly turns into SUB dialup speeds. Its either verizon DSL and it insanely slow speed compared to most every other type or broadband or Optimum Which claims the area can get 50 mbps Gona see how much that is true seeing after wait for 3+ years for fios to hit my area i broke down to switch to cable. last time i had any type of cable there services was atrocious I hope that is fixed cause if I gona still being paying about same price the service and speed better be there. as for the 400gbps most people dont even come close to saturating the 1gbps that is widely available. Business are another story I sure they could benefit from this. Normal user not so much.
100mbit fiber connection is cheap for mansions in Japan. I pay around $40 / month. No bandwidth or any other limits. ADSL gets somewhat obsolete, even outside of cities its recommended switching to 100mbit fiber. Is it something like this outside?-> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ilMx7k7mso
Isnt it great capitalism at is best. we pay more for less and japan/china pay less for more ****ing bastard governments and business that control them governments or well pay em off it probably both .
