Value for money:
Cablevision has now been proven to be the worst at providing advertised speeds,
The connection is reliable though never had a problem in the 2 years I've had it.
But the speeds are just horrible, on regular OOL I was lucky to get 3-5 Mbps on what was supposed to be 15mbps line, if I dared to try to download something while watching Netflix, Netflix would stall and need to buffer.
So I upgraded to boost, when I did this i was still in a promotional period so it was an ok deal 29.99 + 15 for boost = $45. Boost used to be fast, but over the past year it's so slow, I now get between 6 - Mbps, 10 being the average probably on a Mbps line, and during peak I almost always never break 6-8 Mbps,
Atleast on boost I can watch Netflix and download at the same time, but getting 1/4 to 1/3 of your advertised speed is unacceptable.
Every other cable system is upgrading to DOSCIS 3.0, cablevision has it but only for customers that want to pay $100 for internet a month, their current system simply cannot support the number of users in the Netflix era. I've been paying $65 for this crap for about a year.
I'm moving in October and I'm switching to FIOS, it comes out about $15 more than cablevision triple play, but I'm willing to pay that to get my advertised speeds and uncompressed HD
