    Sitting here on my 8MB connection which is shocking at the best of times. Came across this article on another forum.
    It's a few months old so chances are it has been posted before, apologizes if it has.

    I remember reading that - it's nuts.

    I'm sure I read somewhere recently that you can get 2Gb in Japan now.

    I consider myself lucky with a consistent 70+/15+

    I'm looking at 0.8 down and 0.2 up.
    Hopefully get my own place within the next year or so, first thing on my list is a decent connection :)

    Advantages of living in a top 5 internet speed countries. I average 7mb/s download on torrents via wifi mind you.

    Browser download is at 1mb/s, also via wifi.

    I pay around 10$/mo for my plan.

    As a side note, we have only 400km of highways and lots of potholes but our intenet speed kicks ass.

    The laptop doesn't hinder speed that much. The main problem is the WiFi router as I know.

    That's crazy! It's hard to imagine how far internet speeds have come, anyone remember the dialup from just 10 years ago?
