[INTERNET] Anyone in Peterborough on the 60/2 Connection

I just called to get this service hooked up an I'm wondering if any of you have this connection yet? If so, are you getting anywhere near advertised speed. I am located close to downtown at Dalhousie and Aylmer Street.

Please post speed test results.

Cable speed and reliability is node centric so you could be anywhere and get the same results in Peterborough. That said if I lived where you are I'd be more worried about someone stealing my hubcaps or breaking in and stealing my internets outright.

I understand that it is dependent on the node, which is why I gave my location. I agree with you about this area but knock on wood I've had no issues in 5 years I've been here. My dad lives in a nice neighborhood and his car has been broke into twice in that time.

Might be a long shot that you will get someone from your node and on your profile to chime in. I'm 14/2 and only get 7.2/1.3 actual speeds.

As for your area I suspect all your neighbourhood scofflaws go to your dad's and my area to jack our shit. Thus you're safe.

I figured it would be a longshot. Anyway they are coming tomorrow, so I guess i'll find out. Its too bad bell is the only isp that has greater than 2 meg upload, as I won't deal with that company. I have a friend in the USA on Comcast and he's getting a free upgrade to 50/10 next month.

I'm fine with 14/2 or 7/1 or heck 3/1 even. Based on where you are you could even get Nexicom's ADSL2+ with no cap.
