    How fast is your Net connection?

    my i-cable is soon to expire & i want to try another ISP, may i know what is you net speed specially from those who subscribe just above $1xx per month.

    Please use this to test your speed, select TAIPEI.

    Nice tool - mine is on a Netvigator/NOW connection, nominally 6Mb/s down, 640kb/s up, with the NOW box connected but on standby.


    But you get what you pay for; at HK$100-ish per month frankly you seem to be doing OK. The list price on a 6 or 8Mbit Netigator connection is $398/month although obviously you can do a lot better than that bundled with TV. I pay $381 most months (there is the occasional month where I pay less because of some promo), but that includes the broadband, and NOW with all the free channels, plus the HBO pack, the Discovery pack, Discovery HD, BBC World, Star Movies, GMA Pinoy, and maybe one or two others.

    228 HK$, only 3 channels though (plus the free ones). 8MB, but connected to a 54mbit WLAN router, with 4-5 PC connected to it (I reckon the stats would look better with the direct connection).
