Re: [Bresnan] Just got my 30MB Optimum Boost Service in Missoula

I know when I had OOL/Bresnan in Butte on a SB6120 with 4 bonded DS channels I could test out at a perfect 30/5 to the on-network speedtest locations (»www.bresnan.com/speedtest) but anywhere else off-network would be maybe 10-12Mb/s at best. At the time you could see a bottleneck when Bresnan handed off to any of their peers out of Billings on traces. I moved out of Butte 3 months ago so I can't comment on the current state of things there but something tells me things are still the same.



These tests are done plugged directly into the back of the cable modem. The modem is the standard Cisco DPQ-3925
