Ping is okay, but it depends on location being pinged...

Oh, and I guess the ISOhunt shutdown is another of my 1st world problems.

People Republic of Maryland with comcast cable internet Ping 11ms Download Speed 23.19 mbps Upload speed 4.75 mbps. Not sure how good any of that is.

In all fairness, I only pay $40 a month compared to over $100 that I've heard from others, and for the most part I'm happy with the speed, never waiting long for much, I've had slower. And never an interruption to service (except for power outages).

Thanks!!

Yes, that's really slow. And it's not cheap.

RE: What is your latest first world problem ?
I hate all of you. Out in the boonies I have to use satellite internet Weeping

Back when I used to live in civilization I once achieved 25+ mbps actual down speed. Not potential, actual, It was amazing, and it's a night I will forever remember. I was downloading a popular movie through a bit torrent client.

Still, I'm much happier to have privacy and be away from people. I don't like people near me.

I have 2 dollars for food for the next week.

Bury me with my guns on, so when I reach the other side - I can show him what it feels like to die.
