How high is your broadband speed?

There are quite a few internet service providers to choose from in Australia and competition seems to be fairly high.

However, it would be interesting to see the variation in broadband speeds across the country and between different providers as well as what you expected and whether you are happy?

pathetic
DL @ 3.4 MBps on ADSL2+
UL @ 500KBps

I should be paying less if I can't reach minimum ADSL2+ speeds.

I'll have to run the test later when I get back to my computer, but I can tell you now that in utorrent my downloads max out at 1mb/sec and upload at about 75kb. That is telstra adsl2. It is 10 times slower downloading in utorrent than I had with comcast cable in US, which was 10mb/sec and 1mb/sec up. That's actual download speed per second, not what speedtest.net gives you.

I think it makes a difference how far you are from the exchange. We are only 172 m from TPG ADSL 2+ exchange. In general they have plenty if nodes around Sydney otherwise they wouldn't be able to compete with Telstra.

Here from my iPhone... A bit slower than PC but still alright. Device plays a role, android is a but faster. Best speeds are on PC.

I was on Telstra cable before and was achieving downloads of 15+ Mbps, but the price was too much. They were charging $65 for 12 GB. With that speed I was over my limit in less than 2 weeks. Add WiFi limitations this drugs the speed down
