Apologies for the Ancient thread bump!
We're having 300mbs FTTP installed tomorrow!

This is what we've dealt with for years:

Game downloads are finally going to be within my grasp!
Gone are the days of waiting 36+ hours for mere patches to download (CoD :roll: ).

With 300mbs down it'll be over before I've boiled the kettle, had a gooseberry fool and made tea.
Glorious!

I shall post the improved speedtest result tomorrow :toot:

Fibre to my building, I cut it down after my first 3 months to 150/150 as I couldn't download enough stuff to make 1GB worth it for the price they wanted (£60 a month, still almost less than I was paying BT before for a much worse speed).

Here it is now:

I ran a test this morning and it was like 58Mbps via Sky.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Not quite 300mb, but for £34 a month it's less than I was paying BT for 7mb!

That's a very healthy increase in speed.

My internet is around 18Mbps. It's adequate I guess.

The PS4 is only picking up 21mbs on its WiFi connection.
Might have to figure out a way to get a long enough ethernet cable to it.

I don't want to brag but...

This is my home connection. Better yet, we pay about 20 euros a month for it. Unlimited, obviously.

France really has its gooseberry fool together with this stuff.

EDIT: Just seen StayDead's speeds grumblegrumble.

Still!

Don't have much option to be honest - you get the provider that bought the contract for the building. We pay about 20 quid a month for this, and it seems to be fine for gaming.

Mines about 10mbs download and 0.8 uploads, been like it for years and huge downloads are a pain in the ass.

If your mains wiring is up to it, use these:

I think they use some kind of magic to work. Our wiring here is pretty old but they work fine, just plug them straight in the wall rather than into a multi-way as they can be fussy about surge protectors and the like.

EDIT You might want more expensive ones to get the full speed, I think these are for up to 100 Mbs, you need better than that.

Edit 2 : this one I think
