Re: Optimum Ultra Question

I rarely see above 80Mbps down and it rarely goes that faster than that. Most of the time it's in the 50-70MBps~ range. I can't complain about the upload, thats never an issue. I've had Cablevision out to my house multiple times. (replaced everything from the pole to the modem) A tech ran a cable from the pole to the truck with his own modem and laptop showing exactly what I was seeing, I kept complaining so they kept sending people out to my node to replace "filters" or whatever but nothing helped so I gave up. I was going to start a new round of complaining once I got more downstream channels, I currently have 5. When I went from 4 downstream to 5 I never noticed a difference.

Edit: I've had truck rolls at least 6 times. I have to rely upon Cablevision because my only other choice is Frontier. I got Ultra when it first came out and it was pretty much perfect for the first two years.

Edit2: When I was troubleshooting my speed problems another user suggested I call corporate escalation but they were of no help either.

Just did a speed test at work and got 110/11.75 . I guess it all Depends on how many people have boost/ultra on your node.

I'd crap my pants if I got those speeds too

with boost, I'm getting 59/8. not bad. I have 3 desktops, netflix,2 kindles, ipad 2 iphones, and other laptops. Right now just thinking about going with ultra. if it wasn't for the 300 activation, I would've done it a long time ago. That's holding me back.

you have a shitload devices, but i highly doubt that all of them will be active at once. and even if they, most of them generate 'web browsing'-type traffic, which is bursty in short periods. you don't notice difference when upgrading to ultra.
