I use to have Centurylink 10 megs.

For a while it worked. Then, it started slowing down. Evenually, It got to a point where I could not play games online anymore, with ping anywhere from 300-1000. If I wanted to watch youtube, I'd have to play some pokemon for 10 minutes before it rendered enough for no interuptions. Eventually, after almost getting banned from league of legends, I said enough was enough, and switched to comcast.

costs twice as much for the same speed, but surpisingly, it accually works 8o. wow, amazing, internet that accually works:D.

Glad I live inside town. So many of my family just lives within 50 miles of me, and yet that is basicly in the middle of nowhere.

I have ethernet and I can't really tell the difference.
I'd say it's good overall except when it's around midnight.

Our's works fine. Then it doesn't work fine. Sometimes my issue is the phone cord. My 'dad's' a moron who never installs things correctly. So the connection there is often bad. I don't care about watching videos in high quality, but when you're computer won't load the low quality?? Yea, it's a pain.

Final week of slow internet I'm upgrading to 200 down and 20 upload. We have too many people trying to access the net at the same time and I've had enough.

Story of my life, but it's a first world problem I can easily overlook.

I do get cranky when I'm disconnected randomly, sometimes for minutes, sometimes for days.

It's very slow during the weeknights, but could just sleep through it and use it around midnight to dusk. I used to have DSL, but now I have cable. DSL was kinda slow, but consistent non-stop and if I decide to live in a farm, then I'll get 4G broadband via telephone mast.

Yeah we have slow internet lol. Only 15 MBPS and that's slow in my opinion lol (especially since every device in the house connects to it.) We are paying 50 dollars a month for it. In order to upgrade to 40 MBPS it's close to 100 dollars I'm like really?

Then there is another company that advertises on t.v. 40 MBPS for only 40 dollars a month (2 year contract) Only thing is our area isn't wired for their service.

So stuck paying for slow expensive internet lol.

I had crappy crappy internet last year. That internet was so slow that even opening wikipedia took 2 minutes and speed was about 1 Mbps or something. When I was playing CS:GO my ping were jumping all over the place. Ping was firstly 34 then it was 60 then it was 110 and after that 400-700.

Now my internet is fast enough :-)
