    Who is your ISP & what kind of connection are you using ?

    Hi,

    Who is your ISP & what kind of connection are you using ?

    I am using a 4G hotspot connected using WiFi.

    My ISP is Reliance Jio.

    I'm using a company called Dakota Pro. It's a fixed wireless connection with a small dish pointed at a tower about 20 miles away. 11 megabit. Best I can get as I live in a bit of a dead zone. Latency is virtually zero though, great for gaming.

    Comca$t cable with a 300/50 tier plan. I call it the "family saver" plan because everybody in the house can do what they want without interfering or causing problems for anyone else.

    I had a 1G (business) plan for awhile, but frankly I don't notice any difference with 300 access.
    regards

    Mi isp is my next door neighbor, but he doesn't know. I would tell him, but he doesn't like me, thinks I'm a mooch.

    I just upgraded from DSL to fiber-optic 100mb up/down and VOIP phone service $50.00 per month and no complaints.

    The only problem that I have with my 4G connection is that the data limit per day is 1.5 GB.

    After that the speed drops to 64kbps.

    Not sure, the Fiber Optic Internet service comes included in my Apartment rent. But It'll do.

    I use a "Boost" 4G pre-paid phone service in Australia as my only internet access. I use my phone as an internet access point for my laptop, 3 raspberry pi devices and a google chromecast device. I usually pay about 30 to 40 dollars a month for a 20 to 30 GB allowance. Plans can vary from 10 dollars for 3 GB/month up to 300 dollars for 240 GB/month.

    Speeds aren't too bad where I live, but moving to a larger town/city can drop my speeds significantly. I get download speeds between 25 Mb/s up to, on a few rare occasions, 130 Mb/s. Usual download speed range is 30Mb/s up to about 80Mb/s. Today, from my laptop via the android phone, my readings were ~60 down, ~31up ...
    speedtest.png... not too bad really .
