    Should I call my provider?

    My down is 6.31 mbps and my up is 0.29mbps, and my ping is 61 according to speedtest.net.
    I'm wondering if I should call about what is going on? I know my mother doesn't pay a shitload of money for internet but I don't think that what I'm receiving is adequate.
    So should I call?

    Down is fine, up is a little low, but not totally absurd. Your ping is really good too.

    So, no. You shouldn't.

    That answer may change if you tell me your bandwith limit and exactly how much you're paying. But generally, no.

    When it comes to computers and this internet shit I know nothing, and I don't pay my mother does.
    is there a way for me to figure out my bandwidth limit ?
    It's just my rating is D+ for both down and up globally.
    It said my internet is below 75% of people globally.
    Oh and my provider is Bell Aliant and you're canadian so you might know if it's up to their standards.

    Really? It said that? Numbers seem fine to me.

    To check your bandwith (I don't know how it works with your ISP) but I can just go on my ISP's website, log in, and check.

    Ah, just read you have Bell, hmm. They should have a similar service then. (I have Videotron, a Quebec only service.)

    I pay 65$ a month (which is kind of high, could be better) for about similar numbers (if I remember correctly, my upload is a little higher than yours, but other than that it's about the same) and I have 90 GB of bandwith. If you have any less bandwith than me and you pay equally or more you should call them, if not, then you should be fine.

    Ping is fine, if you have 6 Mbit, you would be fine.

    If it's not, you're not guaranteed a maximum speed at all times, during peak hours, slowdowns will probably occur.

    If you are supposed to get 12 Mbit and are only getting 6 Mbit half the time or something outrageous, then you should call. You're going to look like an idiot if you call accusing them, if you don't know the speed you're supposed to be getting.

    All that for 25 dollars and 87 cents a month? That's either bullshit, or you bandwith is the size of your dick.
