Here are some results from 5pm... not much better, barely creeping over 1mbps on some tests... and look how spikey the dumeter graph is.

It's interesting to look at some of these plots and look at the spikes up and then spikes down ... it's almost as if it's saying "I sent that way too fast, so I'll slow way down for the next packets!"

Yeah, you can see they all peak pretty close to the maximum, 180KB/sec is very close to 1.5mbps (192KB/sec would be), but then it studders down, spikes, etc... Rogers is doing some weird throttling. Like they're crippling it in some way so we don't get consistant results...

My sentiments exactly, perhaps they are performing tests and experimenting to determine the effectiveness of their multi-stream packet feed control throttling equipment in preparation for their upcoming data transfer caps i.e. Cable Modem Termination Systems (CMTSs) in conforming to the Data over Cable System (DOCSIS) Standards. Looks like the old rehashed version of the DOCSIS Baseline Privacy Plus MIB.

I'm on a Terayon S-CDMA though.... They won't give me a DOCSIS, i've tried a few schemes already, hehe...

My feelings are that if Roger's chooses to go full steam ahead with this model that probably all the existing modems will need to be replaced with the DOCSIS by next spring for the purposes of consistency, performance, efficiency and of course control. Then it will probably eventually come to pay as you go or should I say as per monthly data and speeds used.
