Windows 7: Download speed

Download speed

I recently got Uverse .
Originally I had 6gb down speed, and they kept raising it because of their billing errors.

They raised it to 18gb at same price ( $19.95 mo. on a promotion.)

Then I got an SSD, and they reneged on their price and wanted $50.00 mo. for the 18gb.

They rolled me back to 6gb, and my speed seems fine.

I backed up my C drive and it took 5 minutes, including verification.

They are now calling me to increase the speed, but I see no need.

Would increasing Uverse speed do anything more than what I have?

Thanks,

Paul

No...not really. The only advantage to a speed increase would be if you do some serious movie downloading or streaming, or you did some extensive online gaming. I know plenty of people with around same dwonload speed as you and almost never have a problem. If it's working well for you I'd keep it as is....if your needs change at a later date, you can always upgrade.

Just a little information. Every time I do a internet speed test I get bonus tracking cookies I remove with SAS. Doesn't seem to mater which site I use.

Thanks,

That's what I thought.

I'm not a gamer, so I'll keep it as is.
