1400/320 speed results!

I ran a few speed tests today, and it seems like both the upstream and downstream improved since the cap was in place... Don't know what to make of this, but I ran a few different speed tests, uploads also seem faster around 38-40KB/sec.

HiVolt ... you're lucky, you've had your upstream cap lifted! Goodness knows how or why. So, with greater upstream speed, your download will improve too.

Since you guys have lower speeds, it would be advisable to try runnign tests with the PROXY ON.

Curiously, proxy on with lower speeds was even worse than with the higher speeds before I was capped. Now that I'm running DOCSIS, curiously, the proxy on results in slightly faster speeds!

Yep I never go anywhere near the 10GB cap, and the speed is awesome.

PLUS, I don't have cable TV so they would charge me even more for cable internet.

10gb cap with that kind of speed? Seems useless to me.

Well it's not to me. I don't download boatloads of stuff, but what I DO download I don't want to wait for.

10GB really is ALOT of data.

Not necessarily, suppose you need the speed to do the little that you do, and you won't go over the cap, I say take it.

Slower speeds wont decreapse your monthly use, if someone downlaoding Red Hat Linux(1.2 gigs if i remember correctly) on the "Previous" rogers speeds they will doo it a little faster, with the current rogers speeds they will doo it a little slower (leaving the computer on for an extended time period).

Both Same

Sure, it doesn't use the speed to capacity ... but I hate download rigor mortis. When I surf or download anything, I want it yesterday.
