I pay for 30 down and 5 up. Most of the time I get it. Not a bad price either.

Holy crap, this thread is 6 years old, and that's a crazy fast speed.

We're supposed to get 20 but normally exceed.

Isn't there a newer thread like this around here someplace?

I would post mine, but would feel inadequate. My connection is capable of 100/20, just can't justify $300 a month.

Though, these insane speeds, are they from home?

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

I've been looking at some of those test results and it's pretty clear they relate only to the service provider and not the test population as a whole. That score would be 83% faster than other FIOS subscribers tested. Same with Klang's "92% faster" at only 32.29Mb/s and "A" score.

... because that's a doctored image.

The 5 in "153.6" doesn't line up, the "55" overlaps in upload ...

... and, it was edited in Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.0 for Windows. :)

I have the Cincinnati equivalent but their prices must be higher, and tops out at 100. To go from 30mbps to 50 would be an extra $40 a month., then double that for 100.

I rationalize my lack of speed by saying that most of the places I download from wouldn't send it to me that fast anyway.

Trust none of what you hear, and half of what you see.

Or, something like that ;)

This thread seems to come back to life every now and then. Seeing it, prompted me to check my own performance numbers. :D

Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth.  That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.
