Default US people post your Internet speed

So I saw in the 250Gb gaming thread about US Internet speeds are generally slower than the rest of the world. (I've seen many articles on this as well)

I was wondering how fast is your Internet, what general location do you live in, and the company you are with.

Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test

I get generally 6.5-7.0 Mbps and live in Starkville, MS, a college town with Metrocast.

I just moved here this week. Before I lived about 20 miles away and got at maximum 3.0 Mbps with AT&T.

Even for the U.S. , that's not that fast.
For my home internet the most I get is 2 mbps and even that's not that often. My 3G speed is almost always higher than that usually around 3-4 Mbps and sometimes up to 5 or even in really good times 6 (I have an app to test this and I have used it a lot, and I have AT&T which really does have the fastest speeds). Now in Sweden their 3G gets speeds of around 70 mbps, or something like that. That puts most, if not all of the fastest home internet in the U.S. to shame. The fastest I have heard of in the U.S. is 50 mps.

Other countries around the world get 1Gbps which is 1,000Mbps. They often have it cheaper as well.

I tested again, and strangely, i keep coming up over 2 Mbps. I wouldn't think this was odd if it weren't consistant.

I just checked the Metrocast's website and they advertise 18mbps but the highest package they offer is 10mbps. This package is nearly 70 dollars. My 3G on AT&T is pretty bad and very scarce.

I think it's ridiculous that before everyone is up to a standard in the US, they move on to something bigger and better. Verizon is going to offer 4G here sometime this year, but the outskirts of town still do not have 3G on any carrier.

I bolded the biggest lie in wireless broadband at the current time. As you see in my last post in this thread Sweden has 3G speeds of up to 70 Mbps.

4G has to be 100Mbps before it can be called 4G. All the carriers can call them 4G networks all they want but it's still 4G. And it's 4G that won't be much faster than AT&T's. AT&T is joining them and their HSPA+ is advertised as 4G when it's not 4G and they will be implementing LTE (which is what Verizon is implementing now and calling 4G) starting next quarter. The thing is, this tecchnology will EVENTUALLY be able to be called 4G, unlike Sprint's which is WiMax and is stuck well below the maximum speed of LTE. LTE can reach a theoretical maximum of around 300 something Mbps and WiMax is stuck significantly lower than 100.

Basically I am saying that NO ONE has 4G despite what they say.Now the ISP I saw that had 50Mpbs is I think Comcast.

I get 25 mb/s with charter, and I live in Los Angeles. I used to have AT&T, but that was complete crap. Slow as hell, and disconnected at least twice a day. When I start working, Im going to upgrade my Internet to 60 mb/s.

I typically get about 5.5+ Mbit/s down with AT&T. Comcast offers better rates in my area, but it's quite pricey w/o their tv service. Tho many people are converting to business accounts, due to the monthly restrictions anyhow.

I have/had Verizon Internet and they only offer 1 package in my area.....slow( Downloads 1.5 Mbps- upload 0.53 Mbps) guess what I'm switching since my 2 year contract is up.
I would keep Verizon if they had plan to upgrade to faster speeds or FIOS in my area but there not anytime soon so screw em.
After doing some research I found a local cable company that offers 20-30x the speed for what I was paying before. I know what I'm doing soon.
Steam games take forever to download and god forbid someone try's watching Netflix and surf the web in different rooms the slowdown is torture and very noticeable.

yeah I know, some places have very bad speeds, but I would think that the LOWEST speeds in the USA would be at 5 mb/s... guess I was wrong lol

And this was the best out of five tests. Sadly, it is the only option* I have at my home, and it is better than nothing.

Verizon MiFi with 3G connection.

I pay $40 for ~10 Mb/s and I think it's the highest speed they have. Wish there were more choices here.

My download speed is 22.39 Mbps, Upload is 0.95 Mbps.

Holy crap, mine jumped up to 80 for like 3 seconds. Maybe it was a glitch.

That's why it's so slow. I tested my 3G and got almost 5 Mbps I'm pretty sure i won't get that again for quite a while

Why is your upload speed faster than your download speed?

Internet Provider: Verizon
I live in Northern Bergen County, NJ.

What's weird though, is that my download and upload speeds are sightly lower. Normally it's arround 25mbs download, and 10 mbs upload. Must be the outages in my area still going on I guess. Several phone towers aren't even restored yet.

I'm in the mid-80 percentile, but I'd like to get that up to at least 30mbs both ways. That is, if my parents will get a better plan.
