We only have BH lite at the condo, and for normal surfing it fine.  Copper is OK for now but FIOS is future proof.   Coaxial has a limit of around 50mbps, whereas Fiber Optics limits are measured in gigabytes per second.  The fiber that FIOS uses to the house is low quality but it still has a capacity of 600mbps. They can switch the curb-to-house fiber out and the capacity can be raised to a few gigabytes a second.

When they finally get around to transmitting 1080p TV signals it will need 30 mbps per channel.   You get one 1080p channel, one standard HD and someone surfing in the same house, and you have exceeded the capacity of copper.  It will be a few years before cable is outdated but you can see the benefits of fiber now in terms of improved picture quality and Internet speeds.


IMO, There will never be 1080p broadcasts.

For one major reason...

1. They need over 60 MBPS to deliver 1080p and 67% of U.S. homes will never have the ability to connect via Fiber Optics.

But of course, never say never, if Verizon's existing customers pay the monthly money, we will all benefit from thier sacrifice in time.

Fiber Optics = Future

Everyting Else = SDTV

Upload Speed: 489 kbps (61.1 KB/sec transfer rate)

mjs, is there THAT much difference between hard wired and wifi??



WTF??? My latest test ....

Upload Speed: 417 kbps (52.1 KB/sec transfer rate)

I've noticed this thing getting slower but had no idea it had slowed down that much ..... Any ideas on what I should check? I've got Windows Defender and NAV and I regularly run them to check for spyware and such ...

Is that speed just this evening or as it been a few days?  Cable very often slows down at peak times because its a shared line.

ComCast does me fairly well. I transfer a lot of larger files so the downstream is nice. The upstream could still be much better though. Sending files to myself while I'm in the field can get time consuming if I am in a hurry and waiting on a 20mb upload.



Very cool bucwylde.

I just recently got a new internet provider with a much faster speed.   A few months ago, I had a dial up connection.   Here's mine currently:

The original test was around 4 pm. The slow time was around 11:30. Now, it's back up to around 4400kb .... I'll keep checking it.

I had the same problem with RR, it was all over the place.  FIOS is totally consistent for me; cheaper; faster; more reliable.

I was thinking about getting FIOS but the Westell modem is fine for me. I sure could use FIOS as i have multiple computers using the same modem.

I would throw up if I still had a dial up connection. Glad you got a nice speed increase. I bet browsing the site must have been a bear at times with all the pics and such.
Since you do so much traveling, is there a wireless provider that you can use at an affordable rate that gives you good speeds?

The government here controls all the internet services, that's why they suck.    That 699/45 is the fastest I can get right now.   It's $50 a month.   If I wanted to double that speed, it would be $400 a month.   I'll take a pass on that.   :)
