G'day Fellas.
Just as an aside. What speed are we all getting? Say for a movie download. I get about 7.5 Mbs
Cheers

Poll from some time ago > https://www.a7a10.net/forum/index.php?topic=15052.0

In Norway, 4g wifi 30 to 60 Mb.
In France 4g wifi 2 to 8 Mb (moving 25m from the house getting 30 to 50 Mb).
Both countryside. Stability of a basic service most important, speed comes second.
Forum loads close to instant in both locations.

I should redo my vote on that poll. At the time I suffered to get 5Mbs but as it went from bad to worse I complained to my provider.
Luckily my next door neighbour had the same problems so our provider replaced the entire telephone cable from the distribution cabinet to our homes. According to the engineers the old one had been in the ground since the 1960ies...  *eek*
With the new cable we're now between 40 and 50Mbs all the time

Thanks for the replies, confirms (my hopes) that the webhosting \ database server reacts very well from wherever it may be accessed.

For the record, 'we' are located in Denmark. Not that location matters anymore, as the main international internet connections have reached galactic speeds. And locally, what a difference from when it all started, not that many years ago, many here surely remember the exhilaration of discoveries using 128kb (or even 28kb) dial-up :O)
12 kb in my Amiga days accessing bulletin boards using terminal software, (this was before the Worldwide Web and browsers). It took 30 minutes of telephone time to download an archived game that when unpacked fitted on a 880k floppy disk.

G'day Fellas.
Big difference between a speed test and actually downloading a movie. Speed test gives me 53/19mbs, downloads come in at about 7.5mbs. I cave the old copper phone line from the house to the optic box 100 meters away.

^^^ yes, speedtests shows what the connection is ideally capable of, but what some fileserver\website far away may be able to deliver is another story.

From the feedback here (and lack of complaints) looks like all forum users are 'well served'.
Important to know, thanks.

On a rock solid FTTC connection running at 50-51 meg
1961 A10SR, spent a fortune at SRM
1961 A7SS, finally the right green
2011 New addition 1937 Empire Star, twin port, high pipes. Turned out to be the most unreliable bike I have handled.
2017 finally found the liner/barrel were flexing and causing all the overheating/nipping up. Early B33 barrel fitted and it's reliable at last!
