i used to be on the 50/50 plan but my ISP has been taken over by another company and in order to match their closest offering without change in price, i was automatically switched over to the 40/40 plan so i just lost 10mbps.

gah

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/

I saw your upload speed and was like O_o. Then I noticed the server you used was Copenhagen and everything made sense since you guys usually have better internet speeds in general. I'm sorry to hear your speed was reduced, but it's still pretty good. At least compared to American ISPs.

How so? I'm getting 100 down 75 up. As long as you don't live in the sticks you should have access to pretty good internet.

I live in a city with a population of 3.3 million (I wouldn't consider that the sticks...). Fastest I can get is 40/5.

I live in the 2nd or 3rd biggest city in my state and the best I can get is ~20/4, at least from what I've seen. May get 20/1 at some point, but currently only on 3/1.

I've lived in a few places in or around Chicago that only gave you one internet provider to buy, and some of them haven't even been big-name providers like Comcast. My current one is a paltry 5/1 or something, and that's the maximum offered. Luckily I can still download off Steam at over 1MB/s.

And how much do you pay for that? $150/month?

I was just given a free one month upgrade to 50/5 which is the highest offered by my ISP.

Its nice but then again it sucks because I don't think I can go back to 30/2 now.
