I am not at all satisfied with the Internet speed which am worrying for a long time. I changed quite a few connections but all in vain. They seems to work only for a while and in peek hours they are awful to use.

no,I am not satisfied with my internet speed. several day ago, I didn't use my computer because there was something wrong with my ie.and the internet speed was so low that I even can't see pages.that's made me upset for some days.after my hard work ,I found the problems.there are several virus in my computer and I del them.I think you may face the same problem.if not ,is your own problem.hope your computer can work smoothly and quickly soon. Good luck!

I am not at all satisfied... however, since getting this new computer I must say that my connection is better than it was previously. previously I was connecting at 24 - 26.4 kbps and now I connect anywhere between 36 and 44 kbps, so it is substantially better than before, but still way too slow in comparison to others.

I'm satisfied with my Internet connection speed. I think its not just you that mylot homepage was loading slightly longer earlier. It is likely the site and not our connection problems.. Have you tried other sites? Do they load faster like they used to? I tried other sites and they load quite fast...

I'm not satisfied with my internet connection,everytime I need nearly 1 or 2 minutes to open mylot ,sometimes it will be more worse!There is only one gateway for nearly 200 hundred computers to connect internet.So you can image what a bad situation when all of the computers start!

my internet speed? whoooa, i am really unsatisfy at all but its better than no connection internet in my home. i use gprs connection cause i don't have network for tv cable or landed phone. in my country, internet is so expensive but the speed is very low. you know dear, my internet connection at this moment only has 64KB/second and its not stable and i should spend about $40 per month

Yes, I'm happy with my internet speed. Not only do I have broadband, but recently, I added a Livebox, which speeds it up even more. It took me 14.82 seconds to transfer from your discussion, to this response box, so I'm very happy with it. Firefox helps too... it's faster than MSN's Internet Explorer. Brightest Blessings.

No it isn't just you. My internet is like that to sometimes. Mostly in the evenings. I just think when it happens, more people are searching the net and that's the reason. I have the highest speed for my internet connection, I was given a choice of speeds, and it is still slow at times

Dear friend, May be some times it get connected off still in broad band connections of the government telecoms it is better. Also the dish satellite are also not bad. Other connections varies the speed according to the range and distance from those main stations. Still in normal case it is 156 mphs. and some it more than 200 mphs.

I love how fast our internet speed is. We have cable internet and here I can load like 20 different web pages with no lag. We did have a problem last week when I tried to get on it kept going in and out. I think it was just water in the cable line. Overall I am very satisfied and glad we picked the cable internet over DSL.

Hi there, earlier my internet speed was extremely slow and I had to try for 30 minutes or so to upload a single post. It’s really irritating and bored. Last week my network did breakdown. After making a report the network restored after 12 hours. Since then the internet speed is faster and mylot homepage could pop up immediately and I am happy as I could enjoy posting here with faster speed again.

Hello sophialin!:-) Usually, I am very much satisfied with my internet speed. I have ADSL connection which works great for me. Sometimes though, it is slower than normal and there are times when ISP's bandwidth is more shared than other times where it's speed becomes slower for a single person. There is another thing too, ever since I am using Firefox, my browsing speed has slowed down not to so significant level but notable anyway. It mostly have to do with the fact that Firefox employs safer browsing and thus consumes more time.

Definitely no. I really like to upgrade it to 2MB speed. Im saving up some money right now for me to upgrade my internet speed. My reason will be because I love to watch movies online, and it take a long time to download one episode. My internet speed is only 384KBP.
