What's your Internet speed?
I'm curious to know what your Internet's speed is (download and upload rate) and if you're happy with it.

Thinking about upgrading mine since service hasn't been all that great.

RE: What's your Internet speed?
At my parents place is 150mbps download, 50mbps upload.
At where I'm staying is 100mbps download, 10mbps upload.

I'm not overly happy with either company for various reasons.

The company my parents are with, while having pretty good speed, is prone to outages and downtimes. They don't last very long most times... but they're annoying.

The company providing where I'm at has a much lower speed. (They say 100mbps... but in truth I get around 50-60mbps in actual speed. Where at my parents place I get an actual speed of about 90% or around 140mbps.) Plus the 10mbps upload speed is actually kinda low for doing any high demand stuff like uploading videos to youtube (since they can easily be up to a gigabyte being uploaded) or doing multiple things at once (gaming and using a voice chat). And they don't even offer any plans that increase the upload speed. (They have a plan that gives almost 1gbps/1000mbps of download speed... but still only 10mbps upload.)
Plus their "higher" plans also have data caps on how much you can transfer in a month before being charged. (Their 150mbps plan has a 250 gigabyte per month cap. The 300mbps plan has a 750 gigabyte per month cap. And if you want true unlimited? Then you have to pay an extra $35 per month on top of the normal cost. )
And then of course at around 4PM the entire network slows down a fair bit as more people come online. (At my parents place it never seemed to matter how many people were on, things never slowed down.)

RE: What's your Internet speed?
The easiest way is to go to speedtest.net
When you get to the page it should just have a button saying "Go". Click it to launch the test with the settings it figures is best for you. (Normally it'll use your IP to select the closest server to test your speed with.) But if you want you can select other servers to give a more accurate picture of what it'll be like for online gaming (by selecting a further away server).
