Copper is Dead



FTTH is really the only solution!

Good Luck w/squeezing copper to the breaking point!

Just an FYI, I have done plenty of speed tests on coax that are atleast as impressive as yours (including that sub 5ms ping time).

Congrats, you live where most of us don't. For the rest of us, 50/15 or 105/20 (with the associated expense) are what we have to live with...with higher ping times even to the first hop *shrugs*.

On a 1GHz system

Cable has 5.3Gigbit/s or 5,300mbps

11.7gig on 2.2GHz system.

Most people are limited by the computer hardware of 1gigabit

There are no 2.2ghz systems, unless your talking about Directv.

Post your comparable upload speed and keep in mind that I'm paying $45/month for symmetrical 100Mbps FTTH: »www.xmission.com/utopia#more

Keep in mind he also has a cap. Per the page he linked to: 1TB/Month. True its greater then Comcast residential service, but when you get into UNLIMITED bandwidth, even their prices are off the wall @ $350/month. I would keep my Comcast Business Class with almost the same download and half the upload for less then one 3rd the cost and NO CAP. Once caps come into play, your fiber doesn't look too appetizing. Compared to Cable anyway.

;)

Why are you having to dig up a stale Comcast speedtest from 1April!? Was that your best test ever and you can no longer attain these? If this was your best, the upload is still gimped compared w/FTTH!!
