Are there ISP's who have a broadband speed of 25Mbps in Poland?

Were we ripped off ??

So we changed the ISP the other day and chose upc. The consultant told us we could get a speed of up to 25Mbps even in their brochure it did state that. I don't know much about the fastest broadband speed in Polska, but i already feel ripped off as the internet speed has been a steady 7Mbps from the time we were connected. So my BIG QUESTION is, are there ISP's who have a broadband speed of 25Mbps or maybe as BT would say it depends on how far you are from the exchange or whether your area has optic fibre cable or not. Your experience or recommendation is required please. Dziękujemy..

We have 25Mbps. It runs about 20Mbps all the time.
I would like to the 120Mbps tho. You should ask UPC to check your line.

I have a 25mbps conection, runs about 22mbps steadily and hits 25 in the early hours. Never goes below 20. But I have a cable connection, not copper.

The consultant told us we could get a speed of up to 25Mbps

"could" and "up to" seems to suggest that it's a potential maximum, rather than being the actual speed.

If UPC is using the old lines, then you really can't expect much from them.

I just tested my speed and I have 7 MBPS here in Houston and this is supposed to be the fastest speed with broad band using comcast. Of course, they always say their speed is "up to" 25MBPS.

I don't notice the difference.
I feel like I'm being robbed every month now that I read how fast is the Internet in Polska, but then again, we navigate the Internet, stream 2 movies and make VoIP calls. All at the same time without problems.

People in Britain have the same problem. Because the phone lines were so bad in Communist times, Poland had to replace them - and obviously they've done it with the latest technology. In UK, US etc, lines have been fairly well maintained over the years and didn't need such radical changes. The phenomenon is called something like leapfrog technology.

It does depend on the area you're in, even in Poland. I used to get 25 Mbps in Wola through UPS, but couldn't even get a broadband connection through TPSA when I lived in Mokotów. Something to do with the building.
