Re: Getting 305/65

whfsdude, if you have a good wireless-n router/network as well, please post some speedtest results whilst on your wireless network (also let us know if you're connected at 144 or 300Mbps).

I think people need to see what real-world speeds this service tier garners you while on a typical wireless network.

otherwise, those are some bitching wired speeds. would love to see some real-world download speeds of some hefty files (something from microsoft, maybe a torrent or two, see what you can max out at)

Making full use of all that speed may be quite a challenge.

Still don't know why there isn't an A++ on that test site, and just who is that 1% ?

not sure why a pfsense box with an atom processor would run longer then a Linksys gigabit router.

There can only be one 100% score, if you think about it.

Awesome setup whfsdude! Love seeing the sub 1ms latencies!

I wouldn't be too shocked if they don't bother trying to lower your upload anytime soon. Everything you're connected to is already symmetrical so it's not like there is a bandwidth crunch like there is on cable. If anything the more you upload the more it offsets everyone's Netflix usage and helps keep their peering numbers balanced.

Also, I don't know if any of the other MetroE packages are asymmetrical. I think you basically get it in 100Mbit, 1G, and 10G flavors.

The 1% are gigabit connections at universities. Anyways, that's an IMPRESSIVE connection.

Estimating capacity:
Upstream: greater than 200 Mbps.
Downstream: greater than 200 Mbps.

Something you can do is edit the code in shaperprobe/prober.c and increase the 200000 max capacity. I have set the vars to 1500000 and tested a gigabit Internet link without issues or major inaccuracies in results.

Congrats on the install!

And congrats to the team monitoring in Philly.

Nice thing to notice here - 1ms hop from the aggregate router to his new IP - don't see that too often.

But yes - fiber is nice.

FYI, I thought the same, but when I asked the author about it, he seemed to think that changes on the server side were required for the numbers being reported to be accurate. Although I was seeing > 100 Mbps bursts reported in the app after updating it manually to over 100,000 back before the author bumped it to 200k.

It may be, from the Comcast press release on it from September (»www.comcast.com/About/PressRelea···RID=1218 ):
The comprehensive Extreme 305 package is being offered across Comcasts Northeast division, which includes major markets such as Boston, Hartford, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, Wilmington, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Richmond, and New Jersey. Customers interested in purchasing Extreme 305 should call 1.800.XFINITY.
So if you're interested, give them a call and see if and when it will be available in Ridgefield.

Called Comcast and in the Ridgefiled CT area, the cost is 300/month and requires a 3 year contract. Does that sound about right to everyone?

Thanks

That's basically the same as what whfsdude See Profile reported at the top of this thread:

said by whfsdude:

A number of you are probably curious about the Extreme 305/65 tier. Well I just placed an order for it today (as well as agreeing to a contract).

I'll provide updates as I go along with the install process. Here is what I know so far (much of this echoes what we've heard from xfinity_tech in an earlier post).

3 year contract.

$1,111 ETF for the first 1-3 months.
ETF is prorated if you cancel say after 12 or 24 months.

Pricing ($320/mo total).

CPE: Ciena 3931
- Customer gets an ethernet handoff.

$249 Activation fee.
$249 Installation fee.

Re: Getting 305/65

What's aggravating is a lot of customers who go with that ultra fast 300+ speed still use routers from 2002 and get ticked off when they don't see those speeds claiming conspiracy and rip off.

that's nothing. you can have people with wireless-n routers from 2012 and wont see better than half that downstream bandwidth due to the fact that 300Mbps wireless-n is really around 50-60% of that speed, real-world.

I would like to see whfsdude post up some speedtests whilst on wireless-n (assuming he has a wireless-n network)

for the most part, you'll only see 300Mbps+ while connected wired, on a gigabit network.

As the Comcast press release about it (»www.comcast.com/About/PressRelea···RID=1218 ) said:

I don't think they will be expanding outside that area anytime soon, unless some major FTTH competitor (like Verizon's FiOS) suddenly pops up somewhere else.
