How about insteading comparing the massive USA against these smaller, easily wired countries we instead compare states? Do so and you'll find we're not that bad off.

Hey man my mom only gets 150/30
I get 8md down yet only 684k up
Slow uptimes really kill you overall speed. I hate it when you get some crazy good downloads but complete crap uploads.
Its the scurge of the south...lol...This entire area in every direction for 200 miles same issue.
With EVERYTHING being streamed everywhere now-a-days i would say that upping our overall speeds are probably nothing but beneficial for consumers... and Enterprises in many cases
I have verizon FioS.
I still don't get this how in the he77 can I have one of the fastest....... I have the regular power connection. I don't even have the highest speed offered I called and asked my ISP. They tried to get me to upgrade ROFL... I told them I was just calling to ask where my connection rated in price performance level and they said I was the standard not the limited not the extra speed middle of the road.......
Don't you have FioS rapid1. THey try to get me to upgrade everytime I call about anything. Great internet horrible tech support by the way. On the bright side I now now a few things about configuring a router
yeah, I am a hardware network engineer so I guess I have extended knowledge and have the network tweaked a bit, but I don't have FIOS yet. I asked about it but she said it wasn't here yet and wouldn't give me any definite on FIOS timeline. The only thing I can figure is multifaceted to a point I worked for Comcast in the past there were connection problems here for several years. Then Comcast bought Adelphia (the old provider) the problems still existed for about a month and a half. I wouldn't take any sole responsibility on this but I called and raised a bit of hell for a couple weeks I assume others were to. Then they ran 2 new lines of the thick underground cabling to my building. The buildings here are somewhat strange in that each floor of each building has a Siemens Com room. All the phone lines Cable Lines etc for the whole floor run through here which is a very nice (corporate setup) that you wouldn't expect in an apartment complex.On top of that the TV signal is mixed between dish and cable. So at least that splits the amount of customers on the line then the amount who have cable internet must be well under capacity for me to have a signal as strong as I do. I guess it's luck of the draw but from the strength I see with the signal level I have I would say there's 10 or less cable internet subscribers on this line for this floor of the building.
Thats nice rapid. I was never that lucky when I had comcast.
Some ISPs give you a speedbump when you have a speet test running.
