Re: [NV] Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands' Birthday Present

Wake me when the caps go up with the speeds... until then even 300 megabit down wouldn't impress me. Like putting a half gallon gas tank on a dragster. It's not getting far...

Don't dragsters have really small gas tanks already? I mean they only have to go a mile. Just sayin..

Im still curious though, could we get more info? How does Queen Beatrix tie in? Is this a new service coming soon?

I guess your analogy better explains it then. The OP is the dragster...real fast but doesn't really go anywhere. 100 mbit with a 400gig cap...30mbit with a 600gig cap...now we're talking!

The little extra boost on the upload is nice..but I see they updated the speeds on their Caps page but the same exact 400/250/200, etc numbers are there. Meh... yawn...this is stupid and really does nothing. It was only to pacify people that complained of the price increase. The expense of these extra speeds was absolutely ZERO unless of course you count the changes on the website and pushing the config files.

Really? So all the hard costs on infrastructure for D3 upgrades and network backhaul from CMTS to peering points were free? Amazing!

D3 has been here since the last upgrade.

I just don't see the point... let's give people faster internet so they use up the cap faster. It's like getting a bigger trailer to haul stuff around with but the your new bigger trailer hauls the same exact weight as the last. Wha???

Not sure what all of this talk about caps is about. I almost always far exceed my cap (sometimes two to four fold) and haven't had any complaints. A friend of mine far south in the valley says he hasn't heard any either.
