Should be able to hit 10 MB/s download with a good connection to my seedbox.

My home connection is slower: 3 MB/s down, 1 MB/s up (25/10 Mbit/s VDSL - I'm too cheap to pay for 50/10).

well I get up to 7.5 MB/s down and up to 2.5 MB/s up.

I have VDSL2 from Transact which fibre to the node and the rest is copper cable.

And that is here in Canberra Australia P

So Australia Internet is not that bad Big smileP

We have 100/40 fibre to the house.

It will be very hard to go back if I ever move.

Meanwhile - while Australia has decided 20Mb is "good enough" for a country that basically mines coal, I read somewhere Japan and Korea are both looking at upgrading from their100Mb to 1000Mb.

Now tell us what your ping latency is so we can have a real laugh. Then after you have a cry, go ask your government why they haven't run a cable to Japan.
100Mb fibre to the house (same system Google just rolled out to 32 US cities)
But I am in one of the very few Aussie towns that got proper internet before a change of government and a new "5Mb is all you need to download photos of your daughters playing netball" policy was introduced. Our current government seems under a fantasy that "new technology" will give high speeds over WWII vintage copper phone lines that play up when it rains :D
The only downside for me is I cannot ever move from my current town without potentially facing a huge drop in bandwidth.
That is still speed. Has something changed? Is Australia properly connected to the world or do you have a latency problem?

I am in the UK.
Ping 78ms to Reykjavik, Iceland.
Ping 168ms to Reno, California
Ping 307ms to Sydney, Australia

EVE is becoming shallow and puerile; it will satisfy neither the veteran nor the "WoW" type crowd in the transition.

I have transfer rates, 1200 kb/s

The new system seems like a convoluted way for ISP's to seem better than they are.

Just upgraded today actually. Now getting 240 Mbps Down and about 30 Up (Ireland). Bundled with unlimited phone and adequate TV for 45 Euro p.m. UPC.

Not really sure why I upgraded though. Oops

Milage may vary though by time and peak usage.

What isp and sort connection do you have? I only get 48/20 here with xs4all. What?

Do a pathping to which should be in London... not to Iceland.

My ping times is almost at ~300ms; Twitchy Valk or Legion will not be really great for me. 'Casual' EvE is really awesome for me, so in a way its a perfect standard for a global MMO. Speedtest results are not really reliable since default test parameters point to servers near your location.

Paying USD23 for a supposed 1.4D/0.36U 300GB cap.

Guys its not about the speed. 20M connection is well more than enough. Its a quality of the connection that does matter and this is getting worse and worse every year.

This needs to be addressed and not the connection speed!
