No its not minus overhead. The profile sync is higher so you will receive 25/2.5

Not even close. The profiles sync higher, and QoS allows some wiggle room. With my PVR recording 3HD streams, my internet speeds dropped to 17Mb/s X 1.7Mb/s. They do sync the line higher, but the more STB's will bring the speeds down. QoS can only do so much

So rusty you currently have Optik?

Negative, got rid of it after my 3rd Actiontec device failed. Last time was on a long weekend, had to wait 4 days till I had TV and Internet again. Also got no compensation for all the downtime on either occasion. Their new service definitely interests me, for the internet only. I can't get over the fact they don't supply a modem only device if requested.
