This is a recent upgrade to Time Warner Extreme Roadrunner versus the 15 mbps I was getting with Turbo Roadrunner.

It is not the count of your posts, but the quality of your posts that matter... luckily, I have both. ^_<

Just had a check with my speed here Scanmyspeed.com and the result is as follows
my download speed-62.23 mbps
apparently my internet speed is faster than before,i m guessing its good
The Malmö test center being useless as usual on bandwidth, but the ping did amuse me.
50 euros a month.
Welcome to having optical fibre literally 50 meters down the street at 100/40, but the max I can get is 4/0.5. /hate
Moved from my old ISP in December. I was paying for 20Mb, but only getting 9. Once i switched from the external microfilters to a prefiltered faceplate, the speed upped to 15Mb/s.
After a week or 2 of incredible instability, to the point of a BT engineer visiting our house and fitting new lines and everything (everything from our socket to the phone pole), it stabilised and i'm now getting this;
Paying for 40Mb/s. During the instability, it regularly peaked at 34Mb/s, but disconnecting 16 times a day wasn't good. It's apparently synching at 30Mb/s now, so i'm only losing 3Mb/s between myself and the cabinet. It's not as fast as i'd hoped, but it's almost double the best speed i was getting with my old ISP (and almost triple the speeds i had for many years), and works out £0.50 cheaper. The new ISP also offers a 24Mb/s package, but i'd probably end up losing out on enough speed to bring me down to the same speeds i was getting with my old ISP (even if it is £5 cheaper).
My ping is 35ms with the 300Mb/s wireless router, but less than 20ms with the 150Mb/s router. The end result isn't noticable enough though (especially not if i ever want to expand VLC to other rooms, perhaps build a HTPC for my parents).
Oh, and there's no bandwidth caps either. Only gone through 156GB in the past 15 days, but 100GB of that was from downloads on Steam that were requested to be performed to see whether the ISP's tweaks had stabilised the line or not.

£51 a month, includes line rental, increased tv package and telephone. No data cap, virgin half your speed if you download more than 10gb in the allotted time of day. Think its something like 12pm-6pm = 10gb limit before reduced speed, 6-12 = another 10gb before reduced speed.
Either way even at half speed during heavy downloads it's still a beast of a connection and if i could afford it I would be on a faster connection with them.
Downgraded our Internet service because something funky is going on with our ISP, our bill had gone up $5 a month for the past four months. Started at $49.99, was at $69.99 when I called to cancel.
I really wish there were other options in my area... Time Warner admitted that their network has the capability of providing faster speeds for the same amount of money, but they "didn't see a demand for that yet".

I'm paying 272USD for my internet. Note: I'm using WiFi atm, not ethernet
The 272USD is not just for the internet. Its a whole package for cable tv/landline bills/a few free movies per month/some phone services and other benefits like reduced international calls fees, free anti-virus, 8 hours of free hotspot, etc
If I'm not mistaken, using WiFi rather than ethernet slows down the test. I am paying for 100mbps down and 20mbps up
The best possible for retail customers here is 300mbps down/30up.
There are companies/businesses/universities with over 2000mbps down
Here is if I tried a SpeedTest on WiFi for a server across the world
