Now over Xbox Live usually most of the players get into talks about what their internet speed (whether people can host or not over Gears) and we usually go onto the subject that Americans have these mammoth speed of like a GB per second. So I was wondering how fast is the speed over there both upstream and downstream. If you aren't from US, feel free to post your speed down.

Mine are 9,500 kbps download and 128 kbps upload. I hate Telstra's imbalanced speeds.

Im on Optus myself broadband myself, I hate Telstra's (pay fore excess) and limited uploads in there contract. I hate all Australian ISP's. My connection is 10000 / 256 kbps, which sucks.

Again, Australia sucks sometimes, the big difference between Australia and most other developed countries is that we have limited bandwidth, when I talk to people in the states, the idea of limited download seems to stump them.

The first time I heard someone talk about limited download, I actually said "What's that?" Service Providers must be greedy as hell to limit downloads.

Theres no such thing as unlimited broadband in Australia, we have ****ty web infrastructures there always talking about updating, yet still on action. (Hopefully our new PM does something)
