This is mine on a good day and why I stick to all text sites like BITOG. Surprised I was even able to test. In the past when I tried it would just drop or not load.

and they claim 100mbps is their new base speed...
up until 2 yrs ago we had century link dsl. it would hit 1.5mpbs on an exceptionally good day.
we would go offline if there was even a stitch of wind in the area.
it ticked my brother off all the time. it took minutes to download an app on his Ipad.

We were promised a wireless tower 10 yrs ago and actually there is a tremendous site for one. Obviously not enough people or density for them to do it. My closest neighbor is about a mile to the south and the house is empty. Very rural and remote part of eastern Washington around 3,000ft elevation. Modem is a Century Link.

Wow! I thought my internet was bad at 8 Mbps (typical) download!

While I can live with slow-ish internet, I'm definitely going to be switching my broadband supplier when my two year contract ends in August. We've been with the same supplier since 2007 and feel thoroughly exploited. We pay £31.50/month ($US 44/month) for what is a slow & sporadic 17 Mbps (joke!) ASDL line and an ancient single band, n330 wifi router. With Vodafone I can get 32 Mbps fibre & an up-to-date, dual band ac1600 modem-router for £18.50/month.

Even if it turns out to be rubbish (so many people are really unhappy with their broadband speeds regardless of supplier) at least I'll be saving myself some coin.

my download is good and honestly the upload isnt so bad.. until recently we had 1mbit upload except on super expensive plans then you had 5mbit upload

currently
10mbit upload 100mbit download but they over-provision about 10%

Wow...and I thought mine was slow (4.25 mb/s) vs. everyone else. At your rate, running a script blocker or ad blocker would save BW and increase your page load a bit.
