What's your internet connection like?

My connection is a shared type over lan by my ISP. And my ISP has a total bandwidth of measely 4mbps. Consider this to be shared among more than a thousand users.
I tell you, I am a previliged customer so I get this much bandwidth others get only 64kbps.
Back here in India we are still in paleolithic age of internet speed.
Though I pay around 15USD a month for this but you don't have a choice.
@IcemanND, teamed up dialups are equally bad, one connection providing only 56kbps.
Catch you all guys up a few years later.

Yea, 20Mbit is indeed the fastest Videotron offers BUT beware, 20Mbit does not offer unlimited bandwidth, there is a bandwidth cap and NO limit as to how much they can charge per extra GB. That's why I'm staying with Extreme 10Mbit, unlimited bandwidth.

That's totally retarded of them. That's got to be the stupidest plan they've got then (80$/month for a speed most servers on the internet can't deliver anyways - only to go faster through a monthly cap and owe even more). I picked the extreme too because of the ridiculously expensive $8/GB extra over the low cap.
Nah, WAY too slow for an OC3. Looks like FiOS or such.

Can't remember if it was OC-1 or OC-3 and they split the OC-3 amongst the separate VLANS. been too long since it happened.
