[IA] Iowa City To Survey Residential Broadband Service »www.icgov.org/apps/news/?newsID=8559
Ever wonder who has the fastest internet connection in town? Feel like your download speeds aren't up to snuff? City officials had the same concerns, and have developed a simple survey to collect data on residential broadband service in the Iowa City area.
The Iowa City Telecommunications Commission (ICTC), a volunteer board appointed by the City Council, is tasked in part with monitoring and evaluating the telecommunications systems in Iowa City. This includes working with internet service providers, like Mediacom and Century Link, to see how customers' broadband needs are being met.
In collaboration with City staff, the ICTC designed a survey to collect information about residential broadband, now live online at »iowacitytelecom.com/.
Filled mine out yesterday. My chief complaints are loading on my node (decrease in speed nights and weekends) and the DNS issues.
Glad to see Iowa City doing this. Not sure if they'll get anywhere with the results but I hope they get some worthwhile feedback from it.

Diggerg56 - I'd love to look into your connection and see what issues are on the node. I might be able to get some more info for you and see what is being done to fix it. If you want to PM me your telephone# or MAC ID I can take a look for you.
