My internet is great. But your situation gives you a good excuse for not responding to messages here. Lol.

@StevetheSleeve but I can't excuse myself sir if it's a genuine message , I try to reply mostly but yos if it's violating then I'll not respond even if I'll have full speed internet so just can't take it that way anytime it's just frustrating to me guess you can't even send a grocery list with this poor connection and just the amount of angered I get sometimes as if I'll throw away this phone 馃槖

Manageable, yet not ok. This is more a suburban area. Not either rural, nor urban. So there's always something lacking.

@DeWayfarer I understand sir.馃檱鈥嶁檧锔

You can use programs like wget to download instead of the web browser. You can tell wget to keep on retrying until it succeeds.

See http://wget.addictivecode.org/FrequentlyAskedQuestions.html

Generally good but I live in a moderately well-populated area with a short distances from the exchanges, and I think most the cabling now to the street distribution points is glass-fibre in place of copper.

Estimated download speed, 63-70 Mbps. Fast enough for all my needs and wants.

16-18 Mbps the other way but I don't send much material out.

I do know though that a lot of rural areas have much less powerful services.
It's slow but pretty consistent.

@canusernamebemyusername I guess it fits with manageable thn..

It's alright. It's usually pretty snappy but sometimes drops randomly.

@ViciDraco that's sometimes frustrating..
