How fast is your internet, KYM?

No I mean like, is that Fibre Optic or a T1 line? I can see that he’s in Eastern Europe, it’s right there in the image.

Also if that’s how fast Lithuania is, just how insanely fast is Romania and South Korea*?

*LOL North Korea!

Latvian Internet averages at speeds of 37.5 MB/s.
Romanian, 35 MB/s.
South Korea, 44.8 MB/s.
However, I don’t know what type of infrastructure each country uses, the sources never specified that.

I feel like I am living in a 3rd world nation when my internet speed is compared to South Korea.

It’s n-n-not like I want fast i-internet or a-a-anything, b-baka~

Wondering why they chose to connect me to Rotterdam though. Like Mike’s Arnhem is much closer to me. Rotterdam is even on the other end of the country.

I’ve probably mentioned that I have a bad internet connection before.



It’s a mobile 3G modem, so it’s kinda understandable though. The worst part about it, is the fact that sometimes it just dies completely if it idles even for a minute.

But believe it or not, I can actually play LoL with a ping of 95-135 with this abomination.

Yes, it’s Fibre Optic, though it’s not the fastest Internet plan. It’s adequate though, because it’s relatively fast and cheap.

None of you are real internet plebs. I knew a guy who got this internet through a satellite provider, he lived in the real boonies up until fairly recently when he moved to New Jersey. His download rate was a solid 3.5 mb/s, but his upload was…uh…I don’t remember, but it was in the low 100s kb/s range, on a good day. Did I mention I knew this guy through PSN, and that when you played with him in a server the entire server would time-shift? We still all joke about his epics, he’s a fucking legend. The biggest issue for him thought, was packet loss. Packet retention is pretty damn important, speedtest also has a test for that and I recommend it highly.

Here’s my speed, this is over wifi that I don’t get amazing reception on.

My LTE on my phone is like 10x faster than this shit. I wish I was back at OU where I had superbandwith at night when no one was on. Also at home my wifi is literally about 128 kB/s and my phone data 3G speed often ranges from 421kB/s to 5kB/s I shit you not. I live in a pretty big city too when I’m not in school. The coverage/data speeds there just absolutely suck w/ att.

Here’s mine (as a request from Blue Screen)

I blanked out the server so Blue couldn’t track me down, kill me and take New Zealand for himself.
YOU HEAR THAT BLUE! I’M ONTO YOU!

Sorry people with OCD

@Stunhead

BLAST IT! You saw straight through my cunning plan to reveal your location. Stop being smart!

One day I’ll find you. And when I do…I’ll do absolutely nothing because you’re probably in Auckland and I don’t have the money to drive all the way there. Though it would be nice to say hi
