The State of ChiefsPlanet Broadband

I just had to renew my internet contract with CenturyLink this week. While I'm irritated that their price went up, I'm now up to 80 Mbps, which I can't complain about. (That said, I hardly know why I need more than about 10 Mbps for what I do, but that's beside the point.)

So just for fun, here's a poll about broadband internet.

I thought about trying to add price to this somehow, but it's hard to make it meaningful. But for what it's worth, I'm now paying $55/month for 80Mbps.

Other than for dick-waving contests online (like this one), what is the need for 1,000,000 Mbps internet speed? I've got the free Google Fiber 5 Mbps and can stream 2 TVs and do stuff on the computer at the same time with minimal issues.

Eh, stuff downloads faster. Besides that, not sure it matters much.

For what it's worth, though, 5 Mbps isn't enough for a full 1080p stream, let alone two of them. You might be able to get a couple 720p streams to be mostly stable. The difference between 20 and 1000 isn't huge for most people, but the difference between 5 and 20 could be (especially if you start streaming in 4K, which takes 13 or so for one stream).

Uh, yeah, 5 Mbps is enough for 1080p and more. I'm also on Google Fiber at 5 Mbps. It's free until 2023, so I can't complain. The standard "numbers" for 1080p take into consideration data loss, data packets etc.. The difference I notice is that there's no delay, jitter or loss of any data packets at any point with Google fiber. When I run 1080p it uses around 2.5 Mbps. It's a pure signal with lots of bandwidth leftover.

It greatly depends on the compression of the video. A 1080p video would have to have some pretty considerable compression to play continuously at 5Mbps. The video quality goes down as the compression goes up. You're not seeing a pure 1080p signal at 2.5Mbps. That's not really possible.

I am at 100 Mbps only because of the amount of data usage and the fact that Suddenlink ties to two together. We usually run a bit over 200 MBs per month so have to have a faster connection with the related added expense. I would be just as happy at a lower level if the data cap was not in the way.

Oddly, I have no data cap on my phone through MetroPCS. Don't quite get why there is a data cap on a hard wired connection but the satellite connection for the phone has no cap.

Google Fiber here. Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it when it comes to bandwidth. Plus the latency is excellent.

West Shawnee - $50 for 50 mbps. Which is the ****ing fastest I can get through AT&T.

Is there anyone cheaper at the same quality? That provides the equipment for wifi and everything

Thinking about doing this at one of my rental houses that I'm still dumb enough to pay for the internet on...Going to Direct TV now and the free Google Fiber 5Mbps. Just worried that they won't be able to have enough bandwidth to stream Direct TV now, 2-3 TVs and maybe a video game & basic internet usage.

I have a second internet connection of the free Google Fiber at my own home, and it seems plenty of fast. I tested it the other day and it successfully streamed 4 different windows of 720p video on Youtube.
