I do have 3 Connections I use on a regular base, and this one is the first:
This is handshaked as 55/11 Mib/s, but used via WiFi and also used for TV, maybe my parents are watching in the other room? I do use this connection about every other weekend.
At home my connection is handshaked at 26/1 and I am planning to change to switch to something faster as soon as the current 2 year contract expires. I will add a speedtest as soon as I am back home.
My connection at work is just another bummer and I am not quite sure how fast it really is. But as far as I know we have a GiB/s connection into the datacenter and are routed into the Internet from there, but then there is some unknown limit kicking in, also customer connections are always priorized.
edit Just tested at work:
This correlates to the numbers my boss gave me a couple of minutes ago. In fact we do have a full Gib/s into the datacenter, but traffic which has to leave the datacenter is limited to roughly 120 Mib/s and I had some youtube running
Since I am using really a bunch of different bandwiths, and I have even to deal with 64/64 kib/s on my mobile when doing some park-office, I do really know, that a fast connection is really a life and time saver.
I do work in a windows environment very often (at least for my day job), and test in virtual machines. When I have to reinitialize a test VM it is crucial to have a fast connection to re-download everything (vagrant images, packages to install, dependencies of my project, etc).
Sometimes I do have to re-init several times a day (I do have caches though), to check "one-run-greeniness" of my puppet stuff.
