“All the tests in this story—15,890 of them—came in between Aug. 29, 2015 and Aug.22, 2016. Each consisted of results showing download speed and upload speed in Megabits per second (Mbps).

We then turned to the full power of modern spreadsheets and applied our own formula: take 80 percent of the download speed and 20 percent of the upload, add them together, and get what we call the PCMag Internet Speed Index, a quick way for us to visualize and compare the ISPs—and determine the fastest ISP in a location or locations that have the fastest ISPs. (For more, read the full methodology from our Fastest ISPs US story.)

To be included, each ISP had to have a minimum of 100 tests. That means a lot of smaller and maybe faster ISPs didn’t make the cut.” -PCMag.com

]]>Telus has plans in BC that are a lot higher than 18 Mbps…the other numbers seem suspect as well…

]]>I think the math is wrong here. It should take approx. 16min at 25Mbps for a 3GB file. Approx. 8min at 50Mbps and approx. 2min 36secs at 150Mbps.

If you have game consoles then having the faster speed is helpful as these days a game download can sometimes be very large (over 60GB).
