I agree with you and even i have seen such low internet speeds in my school and college. But now i have a 500 kbps internet connection at home and that seems quite sufficient to me. I use it mainly for browsing during the day time and at night i put it on download. At night P2P clients give quite good download speeds and that how i use my slow speed internet connection more effectively. But there are new connections in the market which offer upto 16 MBPS speeds. Have you checked out those??

Yes it is. Also when i enquired about the plan, they told me its in the launch stages and is available only in Bangalore. The reliance 3mbps connection is also quite nice and affordable if you can share the cost....

Here I have 128 kbps internet, which is unlimited. It gives around 15 kps download speed and cost me around 450 rupees per month. The cost of the higher speed internet are much higher.

its possible to make available up to 2 to 5 mbps speed at very affordable rates. but i prefer to have packages that do not pinch my purse badly. presently i stick with my 256 kbps as i pay a fixed amount tht is ok for me. higher speeds are good for those involved in high end data transfers or into communications. for home connections 1 mbps is ok. may be 2mbps maximum. if u ask me i will ask for a couple or a few hundred TerraBytes per second which will be of no use to me as i can do my work within 256kbps speed.

i'm a trader in stocks. the time lag between a Stock Brokers terminal(using VSat) and my terminal which is using "unlimited 256kbps package" is just less than 3 seconds. that is fair enough to judge that for home users 256kbps Unlimited package is sufficient. if prices fall, which should happen in a year or so i may upgrade to a higher speed category, but only into a Unlimited Package.

2 Mbps would be just great. currently my connection speed is just about 384 Kbps, but it's working just fine. i want to upgrade but the thing is there is no DSL available yet here in our vicinity. one other thing is it'll cost more than 384 Kbps.

The highest sped i have ever reached is about 1.2MBs. I would be content with 10-20MBs but for now I will stick with the 1MBs.

i will like my internet to download at a speed of around 250mbps at a time, i don't like the dial up connection internet types so i will always want to use a broadband service that can really get things don't at a faster rate for me, even though some dial up connections can be as fast but they still mess up sometimes.

Currently my maximum internet speed is 3.6 Mbps. But actually it's hard to reach that speed. Averagely i can got 1.2 Mbps. It's quite enough for me since i seldom use my internet for streaming. But it doesn't mean i don't like enjoying streaming. With that speed, i think the streaming won't be good. I hope my isp can improve their service to the maximum performance of the band, which is 7.2 Mbps. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.

your speed is too slow compared to recent internet connection as of today. Average speeds now reaches up to 2-10mbps. As of now, I have an estimate of 1.5 mbps, and I expect a drastic increase in the near future, around 100 mbps or more.

I had both the cable man and my brother (a professional computer network specialist) tell me that 5 gig is the connection. I'm sure the connection has a gret deal to do with downloading and uploading. What I have is faster than DSL, though.

I don't know how much speed I get. I have fast access dsl and I really am happy with it. When I had my first computer I had dial up and that was so slow. This computer is getting to be a little slower than what it was when I first got it. I may be infected with a virus. I don't know what speed I want in the future. I'm pretty much happy with dsl.

The first computer I had was a used one. I guess it makes sense that I had dial-up. Kathy.

I don't know much about internet speeds when it comes to numbers..but in direct answer to your question-I think the fastest we can get would be what we all want. I would never want anything but superfast but I get good speed now. My only complaint is that the internet at my house goes out every couple of hours or when I log off my computer and I have to reboot my internet at in teh whole house again or turn my computer on and off a lot. That is really annoying.

At my home my husband and I get 54Mpbs we are thinking about upgrading to roadrunner turbo but we haven't decided yet mainly because we like the speed that we currently have. I love cable modem over dsl and dial up any day.

Yea I'm sure I went understatus to check the speed of the connection and it does say 54Mbps. We have cable internet, plus we live in a college town so I wonder if that has anything to do with our speed. Considering the college is right behind the low income project that we live in.

When we first got internet we had dial-up and as most people know its very slow, I think we only had 26kbps. We finally got tired of it and we decided to pay a little more for satellite internet, you know where they put a little dish on top of your house, well now our speed is 100 Mbps, its pretty fast, pages don't take long to download, your email is up in seconds, I wouldn't trade it for anything..haha.

I have about 4-5 kbps speed in my internet connection right now. But one day, the net speed suddenly went so high and it was downloading around 5-6 mb in just one minute, that I had at that time put bourne ultimatum movie of matt damon to be downloaded in my pc and was offline and suddenly just within 2 and a half hours the entire movie was downloaded. Then, I also had put dragonball evolution to downlaod and half an hour later when it was 25% completed, the speed came back to normal. It was hell of a speedy experience and I would to have such a speed for my internet connection everyday!!

its maybe due to server stoped responding ot may be you internet peovider blocking your speed. as i think you have to contact your internet service provider for speed related issue. or you can upgrade you internet speed plan..

hi, i have 256kbps speed at home and i think it is not bad but not sufficient as there are those irritating messages when you want to see an online movie... it seems like the buffering will never end. i want a 2mbps connection atleast to make browsing and downloading satisfactory. a friend of mine has a 2mbps connection from bsnl and using this bandwidth he has downloaded a 14GB file in 2days! which i can never imagine using my connection. by the way i think not only does the speed matters but also flawless service is a factor. and till now i can't find any ISPs that will provide a flawless service. Or atleast quick troubleshooting. the time they take to disconnect your connection when you don't pay the bill, if they use a fraction of that in troubleshooting , i think internet browsing will be more fun and useful....

waching online movie you need atleast 600 kbps for un stoped buffering.......
