We use ETAPA and we're a family of five on the same network. We're wired because the Internet is so much better than WIFI, especially for streaming.
I took several different speed tests throughout the day so people can get an idea of what to expect if they go with Etapa.
The site grades internet speeds based on how your speed compares with others in Ecuador and around the world:
Based on the currently displayed results, connection grades show how you stack up with others in your country and around the world. For example if your value is 77% (giving you a B+) then only 23% of connections are faster than yours. The scale is:
A = 80-100%
B = 60-79%
C = 40-59%
D = 20-39%
F = 0-19%
Plus/minus grades are given for the top/bottom 5% of each grade.
Our Internet speed is generally slower as the day progresses, while mornings are usually the best time for doing anything that requires streaming and downloading, and for having several browsers open at one time.
This morning at 10:15 we got a speed grade of a B-.

This one was taken at 8:00pm...a lot slower at a C-.
