I tested just now when I'm not on a video call although my daughter is possibly watching Netflix or youtube... I got 206/10 with a 12ms ping.

generally, my "slow" 25Mbs down doesn't bother me...but what absolutely SUCKS is only have 1 to < 2 upload speed. uploading large files for work or trying to video conference while my kids game..its really rough.

Now I'm just bragging, but I have been uploading a 5gb video to youtube in 3 minutes. :)
definitely bas

so I upgraded.  Still not great like you guys all have, but to keep the same provider and also not have to have a new coax run to my basement (which is still a mess) - the best I could get in my area is 70Mbps downand 3 up.  The guys had to still do a bunch of work (like climb a telephone line and everything) but he only had to spend a couple minutes in my messy trash-hole bedroom to plug in the new hardware.

Anyway, wired in to the router I was getting 79 down!! and 7.5 up!!!!!  he said they push more bandwidth then you payfor because, the further you are from the hub the less you get and i'm close enough where I benefit from that.  So that's way more than 3X what I had before.

Wifi I got similar speeds on my phone but my work laptop is pulling down between 60-65 from a couple rooms away.  Again, still 3 times better than what i had.

I know 60-75 isn't like "great" but coming from 18max with a shitty router this feels like christmas.

Honestly, when I got my 1Gbps internet it was because I was trying to cancel with the big provider to sign up for 75Mbps service with a cheaper reseller. I'm pretty sure it would be enough for most usage. I only stayed because I got the 1 Gbps for half of what the 75Mbps would have cost.

Edit: Got confused.. forgot that's what I'm getting at my house. Currently staying with in-laws and despite them having lots of devices and high-tech stuff they only get about 35-40 Mbps.
