Share some speedtests once its installed.

Also, what modem are you using for this?

I'm curious if they are using the 4-channel (SB612x) or the 8-channel (SB618x) modems for these higher tier packages.

very nice.

ABB needs to release that tier here, and also start moving us to IPv6.

Nice! I'm also in Miami Beach; and currently on their 12Mb/1Mb package. I wonder if you can bring your own modem? I currently have my own Motorola SB6120.

Also, any idea why the upload speed is so low? It should be at least 10/15 Mbps up for that kind of download.

Well ur modem is DOCSIS 3.0 so you should be able to use is. regarding the upload speed thats how it is in US.

By way of comparison, Comcast offers FAR more reasonable upload speeds. See the following:

Economy - 1.5 Mbps downstream, 384 kbps upstream
Economy Plus - 3 Mbps downstream, 768kbps upstream
Performance Starter - 6 Mbps downstream, 1 Mbps upstream
Performance - 15 Mbps downstream, 2 Mbps upstream
Blast - 25 Mbps downstream, 4 Mbps upstream
Extreme - 50 Mbps downstream, 10 Mbps upstream
Extreme 105 - 105 Mbps downstream, 20 Mbps upstream

True! At least ABB has reasonable prices (especially for non-bundled Internet)...

I've read in the past that ABB has some horrible outages. Is this still the case? We have uverse, and I want to peel off the internet to ABB, but only IF the stability is there.

We love the features of uverse, except the dsl. We were used to 50+ where we lived prior.

...anyone compare att v abb in television offerings? My comparison is that ATT blows ABB away in that regard.

For the last 3 1/2 years i had outage may be 2-3 times. And im not sure even that many. At the beginning ABB had horrible speeds. But now i just love them.

Thanks for that. Really disliked att dsl when I got so much more out of networking without att's 3800 in the way...
