Decided to upgrade my internet (something else on the plan I'm going to remove, so the net result once the special is over is $2 savings)

Work:



And the "baseline":



(BTW, if the result said who hosted the server, it would be the same as the ISP)

That's what it's like to be a 1-percenter.  :P

So what would you call this?



I'm so moving to an area with Google Fiber.

Too bad I can only use this speed at work.

Control :


Texas:


I have a 15 Mbps down / 1 Mbps up package.
I also do heavy gaming so the download speed is great but wish had better upload.  :)

Dallas:


Austin:


100MB service, and they cap the upload at 5, and I have a monthly bandwidth cap of 350gb. They claim less than 1% of their customers use this much. I seem to average 400gb+ a month. Yay me. I don't think I'm actually getting 30Mb/s rates when I download games and movies -- seems to be about half that.

Can't wait for Google Fiber to expand a little beyond the borders of Austin. Or even AT&T Gigaverse -- I'd give them a try. Probably be a few years out though.

<annual ISP rant on>
I always love those quotes about less than 1% of their customers using that much.  If that were true, then what's the problem?  Why not raise the cap?  Why not make the cap only cover 0.1% of customers?  Netflix, game downloads, patches, game console firmware updates, smart phone firmware updates, youtube videos, music streaming, cloud drives, skype....  Now imagine a family of 4 with two kids.
350G?  Bah ha ha ha.

And don't get me started on the upload rates.  100mbps service with a 5mbps upload cap.  I deal with that upload cap every day while I wait for CW3 builds to upload to the server.

Apparently we'll be switching from AT&T to Time Warner.
So I'll update my entry when that happens.

Just went through a few service outages while they upgraded the network. Looks like it might actually be better.

I'd consider it pretty decent. Dallas is long way from Finland.
