Connection is:: 5801 Kbps about 5.8 Mbps (tested with 12160 KB)

Download Speed is:: 708 KB/s

Tested From:: http://www.testmy.net/

Bottom Line:: 104 times faster than 56K you can download 1MB in 1.45 second(s)

http://testmy.net/cgi-bin/get.cgi?Test_ID=HA7PXKR5N

 

I have Roadrunner Premium rated at 6mb down and 512kb up , I pay $60 a month , Anyone that has faster and pays cheaper????????

T-Mobile $79 a month a 'Grandfathered Plan'. Lucky to get 5 Mbps download speeds, some times(tested) 567 bps. Even though paying for  'Unlimited' Evetything. T- Mobile considers anything above 2.5 Mbps as 4G LTE. Are there no FTC Standards for what is 2G, 3G, 4G, 4G LTE or the newer 4G XLTE? Thanks. - Jeff

Here in Ireland, it's the same issue.  The major provider Three considers anything over 1Mbps as a non-issue with its 4G LTE broadband service and I've known people who had a tough time getting out of a lengthy contact.  To make matters worse, they throttle per connection.  As Speedtest.net is multi-threaded, it will produce substantially higher test results than what one realistically gets, such as with YouTube.  I also have a hard time trying to explain this to even supposedly technical people who just tell me that TestMy is not measuring properly as it's based in London and Speedtest uses servers in Ireland.  

 

The following shows an example one evening with a Three LTE connection:

When I tried playing a handful of YouTube videos with the connection, it only spiked above 1Mbps a few times in the 'Stats for nerds':

As ridiculous as it sounds, I am changing to a provider that only serves 3G in my area, to supplement my slow 4Mbps DSL connection.  Unlike most providers, Meteor charges based on usage - €30 per 50GB prepaid.  Although this works out more expensive than Three for heavy users, the difference is like night vs day in the evening:

For anyone curious, 3G has no problem playing 1080p @ 60FPS over 3G in the evening my area. B)

I honestly have no idea what my real speed is. I do think it's slow even thought it's GOOGLE FIBER. I'm quit pissed off acutally. I was getting faster speed on Time Warner Cable with 350Mbps wired and WiFi. On Fiber I seem to be around the 200Mbps mark wired and 50Mbps on WiFi. And I'm paying more! seriousy? I don't trust going to the Google Fiber Speed Test using Google Fiber. I feel it will give be biased speeds but it's in the pic down below.

I now have Hughesnet Gen5 and pay $49.99 for the 20/50GB plan, plus the $14.99 equipment lease fee.  Overall it's less money for more data and more speed than when I had Gen4.
