    46.9 Mbps down, 5.17 Mbps up, 8ms ping at $38/month.

    Used to be 15 down/2 up, then they miraculously found bandwidth for a free upgrade to 50/5 when Google Fiber announced plans to move into the next city over.

    Worst part is that I can't get ethernet to my desktop, so I can only utilize about 10% of that at any time. I've legitimately considered downloading things with my phone and then transferring to the desktop afterwards.

    We're thinking of upgrading because it's becoming more evident that it can't handle 4 people.

    Either that or virgin sucks.

    If we're talking cost, I pay $0 per month. The landlady just provides free internet for everyone in the house (She's amazing like that). However, the plan itself does cost $99/month. Which is honestly pretty reasonable for NZ.

    That's about $70 USD for gigabit fiber, which is reasonable anywhere in the world lol

    On the other hand, I pay 90/month for godawful service. I'd put that as more than reasonable.

    Well disappointing but it's not like there's any other options in the area.

    I have 100down/100up.
    Pay around 20$ for package which consist of :
    - this internet
    - line phone with 120 minutes to everywhere
    - tv cable with around 50 channels.
    If I would pay 10$ more I could have 600mb/600mb which is max offered by my provider - but I don't need it 100/100 is more than I need :).

    Just thinking, but shouldn't you update your signature, in light of this?

    Don't like the company as a whole, but fortunately it's this fast, seeing as it's all my area can get for a provider.
