    I've just run a test of my Internet connection speed at http://www.speedtest.net/. You can view my results below. I'm pretty happy with the speed I'm getting and I'd like to see what speeds other members, from around the world are getting. Please reply and let us know.

    I'm in Ireland and my ISP charge is close to €40 per month.

    When replying, please tell us what country you are in and how much your ISP is costing you per month, but only if you don't mind.

    Damn Fergal, I want your internet connection. I use my apartment building wifi and I get the following results:

    I'm not complaining though, it only costs me about $8 a month for the connection.

    $8 a month with that connection? Look at mine. The speed is almost half as yours but I'm paying at least $20 a month... Is your connection unlimited?

    Thanks guys, I appreciate my connection all the more now, but it does cost me about €40 per month. If we get some responses from members in the States they will probably make my connection look slow.

    I've just made an addition to my original post, when replying please tell us what country you are located in and approx how much your ISP costs per month.

    It's unlimited and unshaped. I can download anything I want at full speed. It does get a bit slow at peak time though.

    Look at my speed!
    I am happy with it. I pay about $20 per month for unlimited broadband connection.

    Here's mine. The speed was supposed to be for a 8mbps unlimited broadband plan but it never reaches that speed even though my hubby already secured our wireless connection. The speed below was when I was the only one logged on to the internet. Planning on changing ISP provider when our contract ends next year.

    Mine is so crappy I'm not even going to try testing it. Not at least until I get some fresh hamsters to run round the wheel anyway. ;) It's only a 52 kbps connection.

    From the looks of it, it is just a dial-up connection.
    Am I right?

    I've just run another test and it looks as if my download speed has dropped a little. It's Sunday morning so I'm a little surprised it's not faster.

    Anyone else like to post their results from http://www.speedtest.net/ ?

    Here is my connection speed..I know it is lower than all the members here....Even lower than Kay!!!:D

    I pay around $9 for this connection..The only advantage I get is that it allows me unlimited surfing....Download is not thinkable at this speed...

    Trust me in that, I have sometimes a speed of an internet that can be very slow related to others. My speed varies (only for first 13 days app.) from 512 KB to 786 KB, but at the end of the month will be very slow and crappy.

    Scifi, have you tried different browsers to test which one runs fastest for you? Have you tweaked your browser in any way, to speed up your web browsing?

    Mynameis... feel free to post your results from http://www.speedtest.net/. You can post it more than once and then look back to see how your ISP is performing at different times of the day and month.

    Can anyone believe that I pay around 44$/month to get this kind of service. Is it worth it?! I really don't know.
