Re: Other Speeds Bumped Up As Well

I've uploaded 2.5TB over the past 2 months and downloaded 500GB during that same time. Not a peep.

50mb/20mb tier for $89/mo

FIOS is the shiznit.

This is incredible. I don't really care about whether Verizon's connection is 50/20 or 10/2. What matters to me is that they have decent customer service and don't play games with invisible caps. If Verizon is ever available in my area, even if the speeds are slower than Comcast, I will be done with Comcast forever.

The FIOS archive. I'm currently the 3rd - 5th results. But check out the top one. I want that connection!

To be fair, we can get 35 down/6 up with Comcast Blast! in tests. I also think that Comcast's ping times are better than Verizon's.

Of course, this would be great if Comcast's connection were actually usable, because they'll be disconnecting my service later this month (since we don't know what the cap is). I figure that we should take advantage of the bandwidth while we have it, because I don't want to support Comcast even if the only alternative is dialup.

I sent a scathing letter to Brian Roberts on this subject, and it will be interesting to see if we get a reply.

This is, I actually see 50mb/20mb when I use my connection, at any time of the day or night.

Never had an issue. And yea, the lack of caps is amazing.

p.s.: Who is Brian Roberts?

You received confirmation that Comcast is booting you because of you using downloading more than they think you should? Damn!

.. someone who people, around here, seem to feel they know personally - and don't. (In order to make them feel important, when they aren't.)

I haven't sent my letter to them yet, but I do have complaints on file with the various regulatory authorities. The cocky rep dared me to sue, so I did that instead. Ironically, my high downloads that one month was because of a problem on THEIR end, but Mr. Eliason said it didn't matter to them.

Well, that assumes that people would actually WANT to know Roberts personally. From my experience with Comcast and by reading the news, I would not be able to be friends with Comcast executives.
