How fast is your internet?

Philippines

Speedtest.net showed only 1Mbps. So slow that it took me minutes to load up speedtest.nest by ookla. As far as I can remember our subscription is 4Mbps since we don't need the internet that much. But, cmon I only got 1/4 of it. My friend who own a computer shop has 100Mbps. I just go to their shop everytime I wanted to download movies or series, because it is too fast and no buffering. But of course, their subscription is 10x more expensive than mine. I envy other countries, where I've been, there are places with free wifi and their internet is so fast.

Maybe it is like our internet here in the Philippines. Very few people can avail high speed internet . Because the rate of payment depends on how many MB. Which is the fastest , the highest consumable MB of internet, the more expensive also.

@softbabe44 im using dsl too. you can check the speed of your internet by trying this website.. speedtest.net Just to make clear im not related to anyone who owns that website, it's just that, almost everyone here in the philippines use that to check the internet speed. I don't know if it will work to your place.

@zaga_cleuth Yes indeed . But if our officials will unleash their full powers it could be made faster .

@SIMPLYD I guess, there is corruption also in that, that's why officials don't want to step forward.

Mine says 34mbps my internet should be much faster than that. I do wonder how many people's internet isn't what it should be.
