What is the most common type of Internet Connection?

Hi

In New Zealand the most common type of internet connection is an ADSL modem.

What is the most common type of connection in your country?

Thank you..

Hi, I'm from the Philippines and we have a DSL connection at home (I don't know if there's a difference between that and your ADSL Very Happy)

I think it would also be nice if we share our dl and upload speeds xD My connection speed is around 1.2Mbps for downloading and 0.36 Mbps for uploading. It's slow, right? :\

EDIT: wait, I think there's another thread for the internet speed thing.

I think for most of the world the most common broadband internet types would be either DOCSIS (Cable) or DSL technology (remember these are ADSL, VDSL, SDSL etc). However I feel this will decline in the near future as the world moves towards Fibre to the Home, and more stable high speed Wireless technologies (such as LTE or WiMAX).

I wouldn't find it surprising to find that Dial Up is quite popular, especially in developing nations where broadband infrastructure does not exist, or is too expensive.

Like Possum, I am also from New Zealand. My internet speed here varies, but is usually around 9Mbps Down and 0.6Mbps Up with about a 25ms ping time.

Most of America (at least the more populated areas) have cable (I think Comcast is using DOCSIS 3 now) or fiberoptic, although I know there are still plenty of rural areas that can only get dial up or DSL.

(The speed may be wacked because I am in my room and not getting full internet speeds.)
