Is this a good package to get or should i buy something better?

This is good enough
You need something better

What country is this?

In my country, i get 21mb down and 1mb up for broadband. While, 3G internet on my phone is about half that. 

But yeah, i think you should upgrade for sure

Depends on what you're doing. For basic functions, 3 mbps should be sufficient. If you download/upload large files, have many people using the internet, plan to stream media and game content, etc, etc you certainly can find something more along the lines of 5mb down/ 1 mb up or more.

That isn't too bad, if you are the only one using that internet. If you want something faster, than you could get it. It wouldn't hurt. If you are downloading/uploading large files on a regular basis, I would probably say you might want to get an upgrade.

I do not know much about internet speeds, but Comcast is really good. Never have had a problem with them. If yours is slow, try them out.

That's pretty bad, and I thought my internet was very crappy xD

My download speed is 2.92 Mbps and upload is 0.67 Mbps. Ping is 42 ms

o.O compared to your speeds a first world problem, but still:


Not satisfied at all. 1.5MB/s down and 100KB/s up is pretty crappy, especially when

basically the whole town around you can get 6.25MB/s down and 1.25MB/s up :/

Also, our providers sucks with youtube...

Your internet is not "kinda crappy", it's terrible (no harm intended)

I have 16mbps and it's below the average in my country.... I'm moving however and will get probably 100mbps soon (theoretically it's already available at my current home, but I still have a contract...)
