Wow, I thought Australia was bad but not that bad...

Now I see why we are ranked 60th. And we're getting worse.

We NEED FTTH NBN here.

Our county mayor, who I went to school with, has, according to the newspaper, decided that our county should have "1 Gigabyte internet service" brought in by fiber optic cables from a local non-profit provider, and is trying to get the money together to make it happen. Once the money is in place, he thinks it will take a year and a half to wire the entire county. It will require a 30-year loan shared between the non-profit and the county, but he's hoping the state will get involved and help pay for it.

I figure it will take ten years, three times the cost, and be slower than the DSL we have now. :lol:

Sometimes Ookla isn't accurate, your speed may be higher or lower depending on how it conductes the test. I recommend trying DSL reports sometime

This is actually pretty good for Australia in general. The problem though is that I live in share accommodation and the router just drops me repeatedly, without warning, for up to hours on end.

"Faster than 94% of BR"

I don't think that's really accurate

My house mate has a very generous budget for Internet at our place. I am afraid to ask how much this is costing him, but he's a hardcore gamer and demands only the best of Internet gaming performance.

There is nothing to complain about. But since this is actually 3X faster than the virtual private server I have rented (from my budget, not his budget!), which only transfers at 100mbit/s max, I wish our ISP would offer a static IP address plan so I could get a domain name (like a .com or .ca) for our home and we wouldn't have to rely on No-IP's annoying and troublesome nagware to allow friends to connect to our local multiplayer games.

We have an unlimited transfer per month also, and since I am a believer in the free & open source software movement, I've been getting our monies' worth by seeding Linux ISO files since we got the upgraded speed:

My only concern is that I might turn into a spoiled brat and become the world's most annoying whiner if I should find myself in a place with less stellar Internet connection speed.
