Came home to this e-mail tonight:

Re: Bandwith

That's sweet, especially since they aren't charging extra.

My DL speed is fine, 500KBps/4Mbps, but I wish my UL was better than the capped 64KBps/512Kbps

I have the option to go up to 5, but it costs extra. In all honesty, I'm tempted to cancel this and go back to dialup at home. I can get done everything I need to get done at work, plus we'll be getting a DS3 in pretty soon

Not bad, but I've seen it go faster than that, from multiple simultaneous sources. Maybe if more ports were opened

No, this is just where they offer it. There was company called Winfirst that started laying fiber under ground in Sacramento and offering it at the same price as DSL and cable. They went under because the cost of digging up the streets was too much. Sure West Broad band purchased that company and started it up again but now only does above ground power poles for distribution. They offer fiber optic TV, phone, and internet. Whole package with like 10 HBO's and like 15 showtimes and other junk is like $100/mo. Plus you can download movies from their servers and watch them on your TV like pay per view but it's individual use only. It just streams in over the fiber to your T.V. Cool stuff, I just happened to luck out that they had it in this area. I have never heard of another place with fiber.

Re: Bandwith

My connection varies. 2-4 mbps depending on the time of day and all that other good stuff

As long as its not dialup I am happy (well most of the time)

1086KBps = 8.9Mbps. Is that measured or advertised? What does http://bandwidthspeedtest.com say?
