Hey everyone,

So I am here to ask a question.

I am currently using a Telecom broadband line that 10 other people are also using in the same house (I live in a sort of hostel place) and at the moment, when it is working the fastest it is only 250kbps so I want to get a faster connection so I can stream some stuff online.

So my question is to Woosh your fastest how fast is your connection? Also at the slowest how much is it?

I was talking on the phone to them yesterday and they said it was 800kbps but Im wondering if that's true all the time? So if the woosh users out there could please tell me it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much!

I used to have woosh. It really depends on your location but also speeds vary alot, likely due to congestion as well. The thing that is really consistent though is a huge amount of jitter, pings can vary from 200ms to 1000ms and the routers they supplied a couple of years ago were crashing all the time.
