1000/1000 via 5GHz backhaul
Small town in New Zealand 4 hour drive to the city
Downstream current bit rate: 99.997 kbps
Upstream current bit rate: 35.000 kbps
Line sync from the VDSL modem.
In 1997 it was around 3.5Kbps, the phone line was split between 2 houses and was noisy as f***.
Finding pron was tricky then and a single picture took ages to nab with no preview!
The excitement waiting to see what you got lol.
I had 26.4k dialup until 2008. ... Yup not even the full speed of...dialup. And yet now i have 2Gig, oh how things change.
As much as it wasn't 3.5Kbps, things like mIRC being laggy was just...sad.
i have a 500/50 HFC Connection with 2x 19Inch Juniper Firewalls behind the modem
1000/50 cable @ 2.5gbit LAN:
With 1gbit LAN it never passed 940mbit/s download, often stayed below 900. NIC is a Realtek 8125 1-port @ PCIe 2.0 x1 I bought for 20 Euros. More than worth it.
While old post, that's funny. I remember that.
It was like a whole new world then. MP3s, Napster...
I had 56K from 99 to 2002. It's so bizarre. I can still remember like it was yesterday. How different the world was then. 2002 was when I got ISDN until 2004 for 512K ADSL. Those were the days playing Quake 3 on 56K and ISDN with Americans until 3am - 4am.
Funny how in one hand it seemed so far away yet on the other it felt like only yesterday.

Upgraded my fiber optic internet conection speed last week , 1000 up / 1000 down , Claro company Puerto Rico , i pay only $82 US dollars for it. I used to pay for liberty cable internet 300 up / 30 down $96 dollars. High speed internet conection it's getting cheaper and cheaper over here. I believe in a couple of years 1000/1000 fiber optic speeds will be less than $50 US Dollars as there are a lot of companies to choose from and in competition.
This is the download speed on my older Alienware.
Download speeds on my newest systems.
Very weird fluctuations. All servers are within 20 miles from my home. My old Alienware hits 900 to 1000 mbps each test.
My new 7950X AND 13900K computers are far below par in regards to download speeds. All speed test were conducted today. These 2 test are via Ethernet. Both motherboards are ASUS. Z790-F and X670E-A.
This one Wi-Fi with the Wi-Fi Antenna in the back of my motherboard.
Switched from Xfinity 1.2 Gbps plan to AT&T 2.0 Gbps plan ($110.00/month) and upgrade to components capable of 2.5 Gbps internet speed.
But ping is king
WOW, plans must be different in New Zealand, What is the monthly cost for a 6ms plan?
About NZ$60 a month, not bad
Here, in the US plans are by download speed with no specified ping requirement.
Did you ever solve why you were not getting plan speeds on those motherboards?
FYI, Xfinity is working on increasing their upload speed.
