    Hehe, no I found them on the internet and think its the official bandwidth of the company complex. Quite nasty with 1000 Mb/s downstream . I at home have a sucky DSL line with about 1,6 Mb/s. Had a cable connection before for 15 yrs which was pretty nice but my gf and me managed to move into a place with crappy internet connection and that tho we are living in the biggest metropolitan area in the EU...

    Wow. My router conveniently crapped itself so I swapped it out with another that I had laying around and the Mb/s went up by 20

    So it's 32.21 now.

    Sounds like your old router took one for the team.

    I have heard that's the best way to speed up your connection if it's more than 2 years old.

    Probably not as good as swapping out the router, but I was able to boost a shitty internet connection with the help of a wifi adapter. It's kind of a band-aid solution, but it was fairly cheap and worked in a pinch.

    How do some of you survive with speeds that slow? I wouldn't make it.

    There was a time when it was much slower. I had a satellite dish for a while in the early 2000s before DSL and Cable were available in my area and before that, it was dial-up.

    WOO HOO! DIAL-UP!!!

    I remember there not being websites, I had to dial up independently run BBS's.

    And then AOL was trundled out.

    Haha yeah, my cousin and I were downloading games on the C64 long before AOL.

    I miss that thing, it was cool.

    Yeah it was pretty old. I think the firmware storage got scrambled.

    It used to need a reboot about once a month but it suddenly quit working every 1 to 5 minutes and needed a reset, and that didn't go away even from restoring it to factory settings. So I think it's pretty dead now.
