    Depends what you classify as "fast". My connection is perfectly capable of coping with streaming services at 1080p, and that's about all I need.

    There are faster options available from my ISP, but it's frankly wasted money as it would give me no additional benefits (their tech support even told me so, which is one thing I liked about them)

    If you want specifics, feel satisfied that your connection is much faster (23Mbps down / 9Mbps up).

    It's not a speed test, it's a bandwidth test.

    20m / 3m not complaining at all because I remember the 80s and this is not that... and well it is to the magical "good enough" point for streaming media and browsing. The only time it's ever an issue is waiting for games and stuff to download. Vast majority of everything else appears almost instantaneous.

    Only thing I can say is that you must have a rather large hard drive.

    Congrats!

    Indeed :cool:

    Though I got fiber internet mostly for upload speed. My previous connection was 20Mb DOWN / 1Mb UP, and sometimes I had to upload 3 GB for work which was a pain before :p

    Speed test for me reports 14/22.88/5.82 but I've had at least 24 down overnight, so I guess it's a bad time of day to be testing. It's enough for me.
