Forums - PC Discussion - Whats a good internet speed?

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

This is good enough
You need something better

Ok so my internet is kinda crappy, i did a speed test and these were the results  Ping: 1561ms             Download: 0.34Mbps            Upload: 0.31Mbps

i wanna know whats considered fast internet, i was looking and i was thinking on gettting the one that has Download at 3.0 Mbps  and Upload at 512 Kbps. should i go with this one??

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.

Instead of arguing about who is right or wrong, it is better to understand why each person thinks what they think.

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.

 Bananaking was right, I was wrong. Like he always is. About the 3DS not selling at least 19.999 million in 2013...

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...)
