With The new ac Wifi iDevices out now capable of up to 300 Mbps, it begs the question, how many of its users will see a real world difference in Wifi speeds.

So, how fast is your connection at home?

In the uk we can get upto 150Mb s but that's not what your home network speed is about

No I am with you there, internal network connections between devices in the same network depend on your routers Wifi capabilities, not your ISP's Mbps delivery. That is good for things like iTunes media Homesharing, but any external connection will be limited to what the ISP is serving up to your home.

Yes, you can get up to 150Mbps - but what do you actually get and pay for? That is about the limit here in Sweden as well, but I only get 60Mbps in my home.

0.25Mbps if I'm lucky. Otherwise its more 0.12Mbps.

I actually pay for 2Mbps but apparently with no cable in the area and with TalkTalk the only service provider that is prepared to cover the area, its probably a miracle I even get internet.

Big household, so we pay for 180 down 20 up and have an AC-68U router. Basically so everyone can watch Netflix/Youtube at the same time.

Virgin media provide the 152Mbs service and you get what you pay for as its not over a copper line like the other services.

ha ha ha, I'm not taking about not getting the full speed you pay for, I am talking about choosing to get a slower speed. My ISP offers up to 150 Mbps, but I went with the 60Mbps option.

in real terms tends to max out at 50 to 60 down and 10 up

tbh though I only moved over cos it was actually cheaper than same providers older 8Mbp down 2Mbp up service I'd been on for years lol

100 Mbit, could get 1000Mbit for about 30$ more, but not worth it to me...

50Mbps at the moment. Looking at first opportunity to make that 200Mbps on fiber.

Just got a letter from Time Warner that my 50 Mbps service is about to be upgraded to 300 Mbps.


I'm OK with that :)

Yup, keyword being iDevices in my quote :)

Nice, where do you live?
I missed the 'i', sorry :D

I live in Switzerland. The cable internet is the cheapest option, AFAIK. There are some other high-speed providers (e.g. fibre), but they charge an arm and a leg.

120Mbps here, though I've seen download speeds of >150Mbps. 200Mbps is available here, and 500Mbps has been announced.

As said above, ISPs who invest in their own infrastructure are really reaping the rewards.
