I think that in continental western Europe we are really blessed: there are extremely good and fast connections everywhere, at very affordable prices.

I've got a 200 Mbit connection, with 20 Mbit upload, which I always manage to achieve with relatively few hops, and I actually almost achieve those speeds on connections with my server in the USA as well (180 and 18 most of the time). It takes only a few minutes to download a 6GB db backup :).

I would love to have a similar fibre connection, however, with synchronous up- and download speeds :).

Kind regards, Wim

Ok, I tested different servers, in different countries :).

Here are the results. First one is Germany, 2nd one the Netherlands, where I live, and the last one is Belgium.


If I use my own proivider's speedtest, I consistently get around 10-11 ms ping times, well over 200 Mbps download, and around 21 Mbps upload. Since it would be obvious that one would get the fastest speeds with one's own provider, I tried a few others.

This for € 59 per month, unlimited internet access, including TV (over 100 stations), radio and telephone (free to other clients of this provider).

Kind regards, Wim ;)
