yeah speeds in here are feast or famine for real for realMan... some of yall really slummin out there in the sticks lol. I feel rural cause I can see cows from my bedroom window and don't have a fiber option, but damn lol
me to San Diego (Cox).. def some latency added..@LorDeth and @winnower are correct (though, I would guess that gigabit fiber in New York still out performs crappy DSL in San Diego, even going somewhere in California).
For me, on gigabit fiber I can get gig up and down via speedtest.net to my local provider. I can get pretty close to gigabit to another local provider (because we have a data exchange that keeps traffic local, like most large cities have) but when I go to say, Measurement Labs or test out of California, I'll see significantly slower speeds.
hmm interesting.. where are you at (roughly) ?View attachment 46825 me to San Diego (Cox).. def some latency added..
almost exact center of the US, so about 2/3 of the way there (backhauls dont follow that per se)hmm interesting.. where are you at (roughly) ?
This is mine, from NE Canada, to same location, San Diego (Cox) on my 1.5G down/1.0G up.. this would be going through a number of different carrier-carrier gateways.
I didn't see an IP on the destination end to do a traceroute n see how many actual hops that is.. but is quite a lot less speed..

The ISP is going to matter too, as durango pointed out. Sometimes routing is weird across ISPs and not the most efficient path.
I am referencing the majority of the areas around where I live. Seems like everyone has Fiber breaking 10GB or more within town or city limits. So, makes me feel like I have a slow connection. I understand that referencing the entire country is a different story. Suppose I could have been more direct about my comparison. Sorry about that!Please tell me the OP is being facetious moaning about "only" gigabit connection. Can't be that rural. Try not having cell signal whatsoever. Or cable refusing to run lines down your road. We have fiber... supposedly...installed since covid, but cable 15yrs ago would be a lot faster than this.
Worse though, before we had satellite that throttled to 56k after 10gigs a month, plus 1000ms latency.
There is nothing 1Gb service can't handle cept a server farm.
residential service? curious, what does that cost you?

That’s awesome! What is it to an endpoint in California? Do you lose much?
This is from a pc connected to the network with 1 gb ethernet not 10 gbe, so the speed cant really go any higher.

Looks like tjuren is the only one with that kinda speeds lol. Granted American infrastructure is behind due to capitalism and geography. Too much open space and not enough profit margin or reason for higher than the common 1-2GB. People always wanted bigger better faster but if 10GB becomes more common the discrepancy between the extremes will get even worse and tech will want to take advantage of the high end, leaving the low end likely unable to even make use of most stuff. Think about how what is now "slow" sometimes has issues with bank servers etc because they want more info faster, when ok ur slow is faster than 20yrs ago fast, and 20yrs ago slow still exists as the only option for some.I am referencing the majority of the areas around where I live.
