said by fiberguy:Not everywhere. Verizon speeds suck in this area, but TWC is about 5x as fast sustained(as in not including Powerboost). Pings are way better too. I think TWC kills Verizon in most non-FIOS areas, of which there are more of than areas actually served by FIOS. Cablevision is way faster than TWC, but has a limited footprint up here. Both leave VZ in the dust in most of their footprints.
I can agree that Verizon would have the best in the east, but Time Warner in the MidWest? Really?

Re: WOW! They're looking at the company.. this particular group/study chose to do that. Verizon, being they are one company, needs to be taken into account. They didn't split the office of the president at VZ, and they are the same corporation. So therefore, VERIZON offers services as low as 768K on up to 50+, right?
This wasn't a full on broadband map.. the way I read this is they are looking at which company offers the fasted ISP in regions... not specific locals.

This is a little biased. most people who have say optimum online ultra would not read pc magazine therefore use their speed test.
the one who pays the most gets the best rating. lol
wake me when consumer reports has one.
The shortest distance between 2 points adds 1.5 stars to T. want $25? solve »coord.info/GC20A37 for me
Silly... Comparing FIOS to DSL is like comparing a dragster to a ford escort. Up Next - comparing Windows 7 to OS/2 Warp.

said by kados: Seriously? That's really cheap. It sounds like a special or promotion that you were lucky to get.
I am in South Dakota, and they don't even list the 2 prominent ISPs, Midcontinent and Knology
I'm with midcontinent and I pay $20 a month for 20/2 connection
I just did a speedtest.net and I had 19.6/1.9
Re: Node business like overselling business
said by ARGONAUT:That depends if you include the isps in Canada and around the world for that matter... but strictly speaking US.. Comcast will be at the top since they have the largest US footprint-- there is huge financial incentive to "SCREW" many non-competitive areas.
I wonder how ISPs rank on overselling nodes?
i didnt know that pc magazine was still around.
