I've very jealous... Australia is a backwater when it comes to Internet speeds - and our opposition still want to scrap plans for a national fibre network (but that's a political discussion that I suppose I should refrain from)

I was happy the other day when my typically 7Mbps ADSL connection was squeezed up to 10Mbps by using a SNR target hack in my modem...

Yeah, I thought so. Now I need to upgrade or replace my computer to go along with it.

Oh yeah! Much better for sure.

Don't forget that if you have a 10/100 connection on the WAN port of your router you get something with gigabit.  Unless of course your router/modem/VOIP hardware is an "all in one" device, in which case telco probably has ya covered.

Well, I have been involved in a grueling 2 week plus move and still not done, BUT, on the positive side I got new internets!

Here is a Speedtest I did awhile back and the latest one.

upstream makes all the difference... even if you don't have so much downstream... I remember when we went from 0.5Mb/s upstream to 1Mb/s... it was a huge difference for sending emails and uploading photos... even though our downstream didn't change. It also seemed to make downloads a bit faster as your computer can "ask" for the next piece of a file quicker...

Yes indeed the upload speed is making me smile. I take a ton of photos and upload times can be a drag if I am in a hurry.

(Image removed from quote.)

We just switched to FibreOP, and here's the results.  This computer is pretty far from the wireless modem, so I imagine that we're losing some speed as a result.  The speeds are suppose to be 50 down and 30 up.  We get that closer to that when near the wireless modem.
