How fast are your ADSL upload and download speeds?

Postby kedaha » 2010-03-05 07:57

Just curious to know how fast your ADSL is. A typical online speed-test result I get is for example 5.55 MB/s download and 0.61Mb/s upload. :( According to the Wikipedia:
The distinguishing characteristic of ADSL over other forms of DSL is that the bandwidth is greater in the direction to the customer premises than the reverse, giving rise to is asymmetric characteristic. Providers usually market ADSL as a service for consumers to connect to the Internet in a relatively passive mode: able to use the higher speed direction for the download from the Internet but not needing to run servers that would require high speed in the other direction.

So ADSL is very good if you are a typical websurfer but if you are interested in running some kind of a server you run into the problem of very low upload speed.The best ADSL economic upload speed where I am is supposed to be 2.5 MB so I'm thinking seriously about changing my ISP. But even 2.5MB doesn't look so wonderful in comparison with some of the upload speeds available in some European countries.

I have VDSL2 and not ADSL; my speedtest results are 9.50 Mb/s download, 1.71 Mb/s upload and ping is 13 ms.

VDSL2 here, 21Mb/s down and 6.5Mb/s up. Maybe add a little because I'm runing web servers and web radio that I don't want to turn off.
I see this speed as a compensation for all the years I had to live with a 2400 modem :-)

I was happy with my present ISP's download speed but because the max. upload speed was only 1 mega which I never obtained I've now signed up with a new company which in theory provides a max 20 mega /s download and 2.5 mega/s upload speed. However, I wanted a static IP but have decided to go back to dynamic because the new ISP charges about 120 euros a year for the privilege so I'll have to set up my server with dynamic IP which I wanted to avoid. The ISPs seem to think that all you want to do with your internet connection is to watch YouTube videos, download stuff and participate in social network sites but, if you want to set up a server, they offer you an expensive option for companies.

Since a couple of months, my Aptitude typically caps around 1080-1096 kB/sec on large packages, though I have witnessed it raise past 1100 for a short time once.

This should mean, unless I'm mistaken, that my ISP (orange) is willing and able to let me download at a little above 8Mb/sec, which is the download speed that they advertised on their offer (without warranting it by contract).

Since I live in my current flat, right in the center of a small town, I've seen them improve from about 800 kB/sec to their current performance. It seems that they are making slow and somewhat regular progress on the speed of their network.

Consider yourself lucky! Here's what I have:

I pay ~15 € for that, and it's flatrate. No fair usage, genuine flatrate. And the average income here is ~300 €.
You can of course have more speed for the same price (e.g. 2 MBit), but then you're limited to 5 GB download
or so.

I'd rather go for flatrate than high speed if I had to chose. I used to have a $250 phone bill back in the days of dial ups and I don't miss that time

Seeing as lancelot brought up Aptitude ... :)
I must say , I installed squeeze minimal and Apt-Cacher NG on a fast box with a gigabit NIC , installed a Gigabit switch to a few (7) other giga NIC boxes and ...
Installs and apt-get are just blazing fast ! net installs are just Sooooo much faster than a full cd install. I have etch , lenny and squeeze boxes and it keeps all their packages stored automatically! Really cuts down on the downloads.
