    Thanks again for the WoW gold TWIF. I'll send you the $200 within 30 minutes. You're awesome! And don't worry, I won't tell that mean old Deolrin about it.

    I got the idea from you writing about getting back to farming in your profile :smile: Btw, why do you play WoW if it is boring? And can you even run it on your connection?

    It is fiber.
    Optical Fiber doesn't give you blazing-fast speeds, it's your provider that's responsible for them.
    Optical Fiber only provides fast-transmission for the connection, thus allowing you to go beyond 20Mbps or so. (Transmission speeds have an affect on it)

    There are 18000Km of Optical Fiber across the country and the coastline is only 220Km long (Most of the major cities are on the coast)

    It allows one to go way past 20Mb, its been discussed if there even is a limit. My reason for saying what I did is that if thats your speed then your getting cheated so much I can hardly fathom it (unless your paying next to nothing for it). I am getting way better speed with old copper wires and doesn't pay much for it.

    hubs and service providers still regulate speed.

    lol you use fiber and get a bad connection and I use a USB internet connection because I can't get lanline at all and yet I still get a somewhat better connection.
    [​IMG]
    but the only thing that is stable about my connection is the upload speed :L.

    I'm not getting cheated, it's the entire nation. I'm in a developing country ;_;
    These providers shouldn't have invested in fiber. They don't give anyone in the nation more than 8Mbps (I'm pretty confident there are private connections with much faster connections though)
    And you aren't going to believe how much I pay.
    The base price $16, but there's a 5GB quota and my downloads always tend to go beyond 20GB a month, so I have to pay $8.5 per extra GB D:

    16$ + $8.5 * 15 = $143.5

    At least $140 a month D:
    And the 10 GB quota makes no difference because the base price is considerably higher D:

    My situation used to be:
    $49.99 /m
    0.85 Mb/s Download
    0.35 Mb/s Upload
    5 Gigabyte download cap
    $10 - $15 Dollars per gigabyte overage.
    My monthly gigabyte overage: 25

    Maths: $50 + (15 * 25) = $425

    And that does not include my brother, who uses almost as much internet as I do, or my parents, one of which uses quite a bit.

    My Current Setup:
    $30 /m
    0.03 - 2.15 Mb/s (Avg. 0.50) Download
    0.35 Mb/s Upload
    Unlimited Download Cap
    Extremely Unreliable.
    Percentage of time I can't load my web-browser: 35%
    Percentage of life spent in frustration over sucky internet: 15%
    Awesome savings: WORTH IT.
    Having router be phone w/ same unlimited data plan: TOTAL WIN.

    Too bad my internet sucks so much though.

    :challenge-accepted:

    2Mbps download speed used to cost $3000 a few years ago and $1000 in September.
    Now it costs $30.
