Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.


You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Here in rural Southwest Virginia, I pay $89 for Citizens DSL, guaranteed 6 MB/s download. There is no other option except satellite. Here is the speed test to Hartford, CT and the ping to IB's server in Conn. If I want faster, I can add a second DSL line for double the price and use a load balancer.

Colombia to Chicago. not bad for the 'Third World'

My home 20Mb package. I have a backup link via a 1Gb laser connection to a friend's apartment should lightning knock out this block, 50Mb fiber but as he is always downloading torrents on it... not worth benchmarking (but still faster).

Elwood: It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark... and we're wearing sunglasses.
Jake: Hit it.

Well I'm 2550 Miles to Chicago, speed of light in a vacuum is 186.2824 miles / ms so 27.377 ms round trip in perfect scenario, we got a lot of varied media & switches to propagate & route through, it is dark now but..... we are definitely wearing sunglasses.

From one of my VPS, Chicago to Chicago (with a network backup running in parallel...).
Speedtest servers seems to have some issues when dealing with very high speed networks, in this case upload and download speed should similar and closer to the theoretical speed (1000mb/s).

First time i see it jumping above 100mb.
I changed my old tplink load balancer for a new linksys LRT224 VPN concentrator
(with load balancing), but not yet active..

This looks promising...

Prior to moving to Ecuador, I had 75 Mbps and was paying $75 a month. It was a dedicated line. I am only talking about my home, not including any servers or etc.

Now that I've moved to Ecuador, I currently have 4 Mbps and am paying $480 a month. It's a dedicated fiber line. I will increase that to around 6 Mbps once my container arrives with all my stuff, so I can at least stream 1080p HD movies and stuff. That will bump me to over $700 a month.

Here in Ecuador the "norm" is a shared line, you can get "5 Mbps" shared for about $30 a month, but the problem is I've tried numerous providers and they all have huge packet loss and are shared out about 20:1 (meaning 20 customers sharing one line), so actual speed is atrocious, and hence why I was forced to go with the dedicated fiber line.

I've researched other options such as microwave, they aren't less expensive.

The good news is, there is a massive fiber expansion underway in Ecuador, and probably within 5 years I can get back to where I was in the States (speed/price) or close.

I realize that this thread is 2 years old but I hope things have gotten better for you. I thought shared lines went out the door with party lines for phones.

4MB for $480....that must be a world record.

What about DISH or HUGHES.......is that available in Ecuador?

Why did you move to Ecuador, I thought it was suppose to be a nice place to retire.....cheap...

BTW, $40 a month for 15Mbps in Dallas with Time Warner Cable.
