Re: [Cable] Peak hours SUPER slow!
said by Tx:No, it wasn't my problem. Considering one Netflix session consumes a whole 5 Mbps (encoding is at 3800 Kb/sec + audio track + TCP overhead) line where is the bandwidth for me to download too? DSL 5 Mbps is not 5 Mbps either, it is 4.3. I specifically upgraded because it simply was not enough bandwidth to get by comfortably. The year isn't 2000. What I'm willing to accept to "get by" isn't the same.
We also managed off our Netflix sub as well as zero issues with 2 voip lines. Being a business owner who depends on his connection being fast, and relies on the voip lines, i survived, it was managed. This was the only point to what i said. You are of the minority who believe you cannot live with 5meg. Should 5 meg even be sold anymore? no, it's exactly like you compared it to. We're 2013 and 5 meg shouldn't even be advertised at it's ridiculous price
So you not being able to run netflix was your own problem, not the 5 meg. Our house had no issues running it, my father in-law's off Bell 5 meg when we're up north runs netflix no problem. You're debating with me if it's survivable, not even sure why. All i said was we could get around with it if we had to.
Either way, this is going off topic considering there is a bigger issue at hand as this thread mentions and i'm very curious about but seems to lack any proper response
