Think you'd get better results if you tested to a closer or a local server? 1,950 miles is a long distance for data to travel..

New server, actually the one that is like, 2 ~ 4 miles away from my house... Exactly the same DL/UL speeds, only higher PING

I am aware that i only have a 1MB internet service so i can't complain haha

Just got Channel Bonding today in mid Michigan, and my provider, Charter, moved me up to Ultra 60, how sweet!

In ohio, the ISP we kinda "have" to use, increased our speeds and didn't increase our bill....lol....surprising huh?

It was 10 mb DL for like 60 a month, and 5 for 35 a month. Now, those of us that had 5 went up to 10, and the 10 went to 20.....I think. My brother has the fastest one we can get, and speedtest.net almost hit 20 with it.

I still cannot believe some of the speeds I'm seeing. Like, some right in PA, just a few miles from me. (The PA boarder is a 1/2 hour from where I am) and I HOPE the speeds are making their way over to MEEEEE!!!!

THATS THE PROBLEM WITH BROADBAND SERVICE IN THE USA!!!

WE WOULD NEVER STAND FOR THE GROCERY STORE SELLING US "UP TO A DOZEN" EGGS. Yet, we accept this pricing strategy from our telecoms and ISPs! These ISPs spend millions lobbying in Washington, but we pay higher prices than nearly every country in the world for Broadband! And our average speeds are lower!

Our country is severly lagging behind the rest of the world in broadband speed, pricing, and penetration... Something needs to be done before we lose our tech edge!

In the UK Virgin came out best on that measure earlier this year, probably because its internet is via fiber optic cable.

Called Verizon asking to lower my monthly prices and instead they upgraded me from 15/5 to 40/30 and gave me full movie package for same price.


SWEET!
