    We don't even have cable internet here since I live about an hour outside the city. What I have is the absolute fastest internet available at my house. 3Mbps DSL. :/

    Normally faster than that, but it is peak time at the moment.

    :( I WISH THE UPLOAD WAS BETTER. We already pay like $50 a month and the default cap is only 25gb. We actually pay an extra $10 on top for extra bandwidth, so the cap is like... 105gb/mo I think? Torrents are throttled pretty much 24/7 (with the worst being at night iirc) and streaming is almost always horrible. I'd love to switch ISPs but my parents are convinced any other ISP is horrible (to be fair, the only other big one is) and they like the $4 off we get a month since it's bundled with our overpriced phone and satellite service. /rant

    Uhh.... Erica? You might want to change your plan. We have the same provider. It's just an extra $4/mo for "up to 12Mbps".

    Regardless I hate our ISP. They throttle after 4:30PM (so, the above results may not be entirely accurate, since I did this at 8:35PM). But, to be fair - they all probably do. But, "the other guy" is generally better, but more expensive. :c

    Get docked from time to time for bandwidth usage during months when I'm not really using it (like exam time, or when away on vacation) - despite extending the limit twice.

    Don't get me started on TV quality with these guys. A far worse experience.

    We were on a faster plan but my parents nixed it because they were paying too much. @_@ My brother and I are paying the extra bandwidth thing ourselves.

    I totally missed the grade. Yea I guess I also win on having the lowest grade. XD
    I don't have probs with my ISP... I just wish it was a lot faster (more so on the upload. The download isn't all that bad, it's just the upload I wish was better).
