Wish I could get FIOS....

You guys can complain about prices all you want, but I'm stuck out in the boonies where the only broadband that is available is cable 10/1 @ $60/mo. My buddy and I were used to 25/25 FIOS back in Dallas but we had to move so we're stuck in the slow lane. He downloads movies since we can't afford cable TV and when he does my game latency goes through the roof and even simple web browsing gets rather slow due to the upload being saturated. He finally found a bandwidth limiter that keeps the upload from being saturated and I can do my normal stuff.

That ain't the boonies.. try no broadband, using cellphone hotspot, max 1.5 if lucky. Can't game or watch videos.
