ALL going down hill

I noticed 1 thing ALL of them have in common (not so mcuh Verizon FIOS)..... They ALL are going down.

This either suggest 1 or 2 things.

1) Major American ISP's services are becoming poor. Through lack of development and over taxed networks.

Which would be ironic since ALL of them have been raising their rates 2,3, sometimes 4x a year in the name of wanting to improve their services.

2) Something I have always suspected, but never could prove.... When you 1st sign up, you are given priority network access. And once you "get use to" having their services. They figure you'll be less likely to switch and will settle for less and / or will not notice.

They are all going down from where? This is the first study.

Look at the graph. This is 1 years worth of data, right?

Well they all start steady on the top and about 6 months into it... They all start to fall

I think you failed to comprehend the graph. Please read the title of it again and see the error of your "scandal".

I hope you are looking at a different graph than the one above because the one above is an average of what you expect over a 24 hr period... meaning it drops as people come home from work. Not a 1 year period. Data was just gathered during that time.

Reading is not your strong suit, am I right?

This graph is not the one provided to me as someone who is part of the study.

The study graph I got from Sam Knows shows the full years woth of data and divides it by the months.

I admit... I did not check this graph here and just assumed it was the same one.

I think the total study data is far more valid than a single user situation.

The facts show that ISPs are providing the advertised speeds and some providing more than advertised. I think assumptions and predictions need to be reset.

I would agree. The graph they shared with us was exactly like the one above (all ISP's).... Only for the full year and not your average day.
