Re: Thank you SpeedBoost for skewing the results.
Probably not, but seeing that most "speedboost" stuff is only a burst and usually doesn't last more than a few minutes, its likely not going to skew the results too much.
I have a feeling what the FCC is looking at is average speed anyway. Just because I have a cable connection CAPABLE of doing x k/sec down, it doesn't mean I'm using that, in fact, I know I have to use a lot less, lest I totally violate my caps.
I think they are looking more at saturation claims made by some providers as an excuse, and they are blaming the users for using the service to its full potential at times instead of making sure the network can handle the actual loads they claim.
I'm doubting anyone who torrents will be requesting a FCC router as well, so its likely that will be skewing the results as well-the people who get them will be doing basic surfing and will have a lot less usage than a power user-which will affect the results also.
