I was just wondering if those connection bars are a true representation of my connection?
So for instance, if I have full green bars, is my connection really the best I can get?
Also, do I see what others see? For instance, if my connection shows me at full green bars, will others show me at anything different?
The reason I ask is that I know I have Shaw's lowest internet (not by choice, I am on my landlord's "suite program" because my wife won't pony up the extra $40 to get something decent, and my landlord does not care about up and download speed so he's on the lowest internet connect Shaw has) yet my connection always shows full green bars, or one down from full green.
A follow up question (and shameless bump): what is considered a good connection speed? I have 10mbps download and something like 582kbps. Of course, that is ideal conditions
From my experience so far they are nothing to do with connection speeds.
I think its just some thing to look pretty?
I see people lagging about all over the place but 4 green bars. Dont belive the lies!
