Re: Frontier

In NY a lot of Frontier's backhaul is leased from VZ - that is why the internal speedtest usually is fast but a real speedtest sucks. Verizon doesn't like to upgrade any lines (they'll sell you T1s all day long at rape me rates but try getting a faster Ethernet or OC link) so that makes a crummy ISP like Frontier seem even worse.

In Rochester where they have the old Global Crossing / CyberCenter backbone its reasonably quick.
