Re: 45MB Internet on 55MB Bonded Profile?

the telco is limited to i think 3 Mbps, at least it used to be, the ethernet has none. thats why i use it for the tvs, it's always on.

I am 1700 ft from the vrad and was put on inid with the 25 profile. Each bond was getting 50 meg each which was causing a bottleneck and causing majorsstability issues. My neighbor is on the 45 meg trial program with no issues. My end result was they took me off the inid and put me on the 32 meg profile.

I don't see all the hype about 100mbps cable speeds. What website allows you to access info at 100mbps. From an average user standpoint, I have 3 computers, all the game systems, Netflix, etc and the 18mbps works just fine.

"640k ought to be enough for anybody." -Bill Gates

It's not about being ready for today's applications, it's about being ready for tomorrow's. I tire of seeing all these "there is no reason for someone to have that much speed" quotes. It's short sighted. Just because it's "good enough" for you today doesn't mean that holds true for the future.

Bill Gates didn't actually say that.

But yeah, agreed. All the people who talk of things being enough are too shortsighted to see their own shoes.

I just choose to not worry about distant future issues today. I don't need the speeds now and when the day comes that I will need them then I can explore my possibilities then for internet. It's like all the people going crazy over Y2K, stocking up with years worth of food and water, and nothing happened. And that was a possible world changing event. I wish my only problem in life was wishing I had 200mbps internet for what might be needed in the future.

Except there are practical methods of using high speed connections today. Hell, there's such things as 3d internet, which has long been discussed but never implemented due to bandwidth. Or things people don't think of.

Innovation can come with you have plenty of a resource. You are comparing panic to something that can spur innovation. Try and use your head.

The average US broadband speed is 5.8Mbps so perhaps you should go to the forums for every other broadband provider in the US and troll tell them how they need to speed things up so that we can have 3d Internet in the future.

How about you go back in the past and tell them we only need text and keep dial up? Obviously you love to live in the past so much.

Reading comprehension fail. Nowhere did I state anything about the past. My point was that AT&T still offers speeds that are 4 times faster than your average broadband Internet connection. Until the average broadband connection is 25+Mbps I'm not too worried about having 100Mbps at $90+ a month on a capped cable connection.

Well then celebrate mediocrity!

And slow speeds once again slow progress. If corporations never sped things up we'd still be on a text based web. Perhaps instead of complaining about others not reading, YOU should try reading?

Supposedly from the Charter forums we are going to be upgraded from 100 to 300 soon. Somebody someone talked to on the phone said it...

It may be a stretch, but it was also how we found out about ultra 100..

Perhaps you should be on your own provider's forum bitching about how your connection is capped instead of on a provider's forum that you don't even have service with bitching about their "slow" yet uncapped connection.

UverseTech has the same service as me, I responded to him. Why don't you talk to people who actually talk to you and go back to your ancient uverse.

Enjoy the uncapped 2006 speeds, while fios and cable goes up to 300 mbps and beyond.

You should take it to PM then if you're not talking about U-verse or don't want anyone else chiming in (you know, this is the U-verse forum after all.)

Not so fast there, don't try to equivocate Charter with FiOS. FiOS is completely uncapped, fiber optics. Charter is... Charter. Caps, poor cable installs, etc. .

Believe me, Charter is always begging me to get their service. But Charter has always sucked, and as long as they have caps and U-verse does not, U-verse is the winner in my book. Granted, if U-verse were to start enforcing their caps, I'd probably go to Charter, so I can enjoy 100Mbps speeds for 1.5% of the month (a whopping 10 hours!!!) all the while paying 100% of my bill.

I didn't compare. Cable is competing with fios, something Uverse can't do. And other forums have competition with other services, or 'which service should I get' type posts. The difference with them is uverse pretends to be wireline competition while having speeds permanelty stuck in 2006.

P.S. I have gone over 500 gigs in more then one month, and my pings are fios type (11, I can ping to uk at under 120). So with the exception of really crappy upload, my Charter connection at least compares to fios...

Maybe it'll be a 48 Mbps plan ?

Yawn. And after verizon and quite a few of the main cable companies are making 300 mpbs download tiers and adding good upload..

If you want to start a comparison thread then go for it. However, this thread is about U-verse and a possible new tier. If I recall correctly, the last thread about a new tier got closed due to folks going off topic (putting it politely).

Yea they have a office in Jacksonville FL and he is probably in there office running a speedtest.

So not uVerse.

Yeah you know it is BS just by looking at the 25ms ping time, LOL he works for Convergsys in their Jacksonville, FL office supporting U-Verse, I guess he believes that means they are using U-Verse for their office internet.

And you wonder why AT&T reps are clueless?

Are you implying that U-verse is incapable of producing a 25ms ping?

I get consistent 26ms pings with uverse, sometimes a bit lower but never higher than 26ms. For some reason the packet test always fails, probably a firewall issue.

Here..fixed it, Java was outdated
