I'm in the northeast

I already have the upgrade

50/10 works fine for me. I tried 105/20 but it did not make a big difference.

The 50/10 is handy for system updates and app downloads. Other than that, I usually watch YouTube videos, surf the web, use Facebook/Twitter, DSLR, and e-mail. Many webpages do warrant a fast connection, especially if they are loaded with flash or other animations.

Some of the Mac System updates can be well over a gigabyte so the fast connection is handy. And when Apple releases a new version of MacOS X, you are talking 4-5 GB per computer and I have three Macs that can run the newer versions of MacOS X. I have three Intel based Macs and the older iBook (from 2003) has a PowerPC processor. The iBook is handy for running OS 9 apps from the good old days since it can run both OS 9 and older OS X apps. Most of my computing is on the iDevices (iPads and iPhone). iOS updates can be time consuming on a slow connection as well and I generally do App updates on the Comcast connection as opposed to the VZW 4G connection due to caps.

I've experienced ImOn (when they were McLeod USA), Mediacom, Comcast, and Time Warner. They are much better than broadcast TV.

I have not and will not cut the cord.
