    0.71 Mbps up and down. I don't have FTTH. But my supplier is not meeting spec. Grrrr.

    All of the providers here in their advertising avoid the use of the word "broadband" and instead use "high speed" instead.

    Turns out that "broadband" has a specific legal meaning, currently, as of 2015, 6.0 Mbps or better. The providers don't want to be held to that.

    15 years ago, the "cat's pajamas" was ISDN at 64Kbps. T1 could get you 1.0Mbps. Now we have gigabit networking and we piss most of it away drawing pretty pictures and running huge scripts that mostly do nothing productive.

    I ordered my new connection yesterday - I live out in the sticks, and we've been petitioning for a number of years to get anything like a sensible speed out of our suppliers. The new service is promising 50Mbps d/l speeds, although I suspect that we're only getting FTTC, so since the actual cabinet is still over a mile away, we'll probably only get around 75% of that. Still, it's a 100 times improvement for most of our village!

    70 Mbps down and 20 Mbps up here on basic (40 Euro per month) plan. Higher bandwidth options available on higher cost plans.

    I think Berners-Lee has integrity. He also invented the web.

    What precisely justifies that condescending remark?

    Sour grapes.

    He never made a dime out of it. Maybe he's a kindred spirit.
