    How Fast is your internet Connection? Do you always get what you pay for?

    There's a problem with internet in the uk e.g you pay for 8mbps but you will never get that kind of speed. It all depends on where you live and what company your with. At my parents home they pay for 8mbps but they only get 5mbps!! However some areas n universities you have cable which guarantees your speed!!
    i just wanted to know how many of you guys are getting ripped off and what speed are you getting? N does it differ in other countries like america?

    I love closeby, just one hour in front of you (The Netherlands)

    You know, if I would take the plane to england, I would arrive earlier than I would leave XD













    (because I'd have to put my clock back for 1 hour XD)

    i know the upload speed is jus awful in england n it takes ages seeding so i jus donate money instead of having to upload. I heard sweden is pretty gd for internet u get 25mbps speed n u actually get what u pay for. I would move to sweden but its kinda of crap overall. However holland is a thought

    sure belgium is so far from holland when it comes to technologie and everything

    i wonder why??thank god i am from holland

    anyway,as a university student i use a big line of 100Mb/s shared by nearly 500 person

    i pay 8€/month ,and since it's 100Mb/s i DON'T have a DL limit

    so me too,i sympathize with those who have

    11mps. I don't care really, since it goes fast. It's just the fact that it freezes sometimes, is all.
    are you sure the freezing is not from the computer?
    cuz it's not a big help if you have a good connection,but a computer who can't process the recieved/sent data properly
