Upgraded internet, ends up cheaper than original price...

Had 300mbps down 20mbps upload for $104/month - new internet upgrade to 400mbps / 20mbps is $89 ;)



Still tweaking some things though. Qos being one, with it off I get much better results aside from the buffer bloat.

That's about six times faster than the maximum residential download speed we can get in the UK but only half the upstream (most fibre packages are typically 80/20).

So it appears I lost a line and we are not talking drugs :giggle:

The line of missing text asked was; is 10Mb/s on the upstream typical in the U.S.?

I'd say average is more around 5Mb/s and average upload in the 20Mb/s range.

Weird thing, your avatar was actually the attachment since your first reply the other day. I thought you had changed it, but viewing your user card showed your zappa avatar, then a refresh fixed the avatar in the messages too..hmm.

Fastest they offer locally is 200mbps/10mbps - and I was one of the first to get it when they came out with it.


Pretty much consistent but it did add a little to the monthly bill.
Honestly more than I need... but not more than I want! ;)

The disparity between your up and down streams compared to the UK is interesting. Not that many people need a fast upstream I'm just curious.

Something is visually different here today but I can't quite work out what.
