Re: upload speeds

That is very dependent on what area you live in. Netflix streaming, torrents, gaming. If you live in an area with a high concentration of tech workers like me it's a lot more than just surfing the web and checking email.

We've had this discussion before and as I said before the readers of this discussion group are not typical. I live in an upscale neighborhood on Long Island, NY (myself not included) and most of the users are as I described. The vast majority of the customers in the in the FiOS footprint are as I described. Many of the homes I visit here still have analog, CRT tv's and five to ten year old computers. Over subscribtion is not and won't be a problem except in very isolated areas.
