Re: Would You Recommend Sonic.Net ?

said by bobrk:

I'm beating a dead horse here, but I feel that Sonic is worth more than AT&T, and would unabashedly recommend them.

I wouldn't count on getting much more speed than AT&T, but perhaps Sonic would be more diligent in working for you to try and improve it.

Agreed.

A few negative experience postings in this forum, due to inaccurate expectations, cannot overcome the excellent service provided by Sonic.

Due to inaccurate expectations? That is pretty funny... so one should expect their DSL to run below 1 Mbps at times even though they are synced at about 17 Mbps and the speed to vary often being well below what it should be based on the sync speed?

No, clearly not. If it's synced at 17Mbps, you should get roughly that (less about 15% protocol overhead) in actual payload throughput. If you are not, contact support and ask them to fix it!

He has. And decided to switch service:

»Unreliable speed

I have had ADSL ('at&t Yahoo! HSI Pro') and two ADSL2+ (Sonic.net 'Fusion') circuits. All delivered ~85% of sync speed. I have only seen max sync/min download when there was activity on the line. But I don't have wide experience in this, so there might be causes I have not seen.
