Post your Internet speed here
I love my Internet connection
I guess the true speed may be more as speedtest.net meter maxed out at 50Mb/s

It's foreign... I'm studying abroad. It actually comes with rent, costs 20 euros/mo.
I think the company quoted is Elisa but I'm sure that means nothing.
The actual download speed is maxed (on speedtest it only goes to 50Mb/s) out so I am not sure what it actually is tops.
Europeans have a little different view on Internet accessibility.

I was pretty sold to get a great Internet connection. I know so many who only have access to piddly 1Mb or so connections so it's pretty enjoyable to have such a fast Internet connection.
/rant I believe Internet connections could be this fast for as cheap in most cities with a reasonable amount of residents but it seems the ISP's are only attempting to lock in the market vs. gain customers via innovation. /end rant

Yikes, not even a tenth of your speed. I want to move to Finland!
(Or some other small high-bandwidth country like Japan or South Korea....)

Not bad! Those speeds are pretty high and cheap to match. That's actually really cheap! I wonder what the next big speed boost will be and what we can do to utilize it.
It seems speeds have gone 512->1Mb->2Mb->10Mb->100Mb... Next? I'd guess it will only incrementally increase to say 150Mb and then 200Mb and slowly make it's way up to 1 Gb. When? Pulling a random number from my random number generator (my head), I'd guess 2020. Maybe sooner actually if you consider 1Mb was pretty fast not that many years ago and now 100Mb is common in major areas.
