Nice. We're supposed to be that fast here by the end of the year.

Are you being "Metered"?

Honestly I don't even know what you guys do with all that speed.

I've never even sniffed anything faster than 25-30mb down.

Is yours fast?

Honestly I don't know jack about this kind of stuff.  All I know is I live out on a gravel road but actually have Time Warner and have never felt my internet was "slow"

Just did that test though and got 36 download and 6 upload.  Seems like I'm probably moving like a dinosaur compared to you.

I'm at a whopping 181k/sec download.  My life sucks.  

EDIT: 1.5MB today download.  



Looks at that...beating 7% of the US.  Damn.  Fast.

Dude... don't act like you don't max out that 25-30mb connection on that animal porn fettish site you told me about.

Why the heck is your upload speed so slow?

I have 80 Mbps up/down with Verizon FIOS.

For those who question the need for speed, it comes in handy if you're watching live video streaming. I'm using it to watch foreign TV. This is so good I may even cancel my satellite TV subscription.

One of these days maybe Frontier will roll out something to get me past 1.5 down but I doubt it. The tradeoff is I can burn a couch on my lawn any time I want to and nobody will complain

I wish they would upgrade the ultimate internet here passed 50 mbs. It would make the decision to keep signature home a lot easier.
Link Posted: 9/1/2015 10:54:08 AM EDT
Their ultimate is only 50 mb/s here too. I usually get a little over 60 mb/s down though. Just wish I could have something like at the office.

Test from my workstation while about 200 mb/s of other traffic from other employees and processes going on at the same time. Of course, it also only grabs one of the fiber Internet connections for the test and my workstation only has a gigabit NIC in it.



And sorry, no, I can not post it without the ISP blacked out. The ISP shows up as the company name since we have our own ASN and direct allocation of IPs.

I'm sure it'll be the norm now. Cable companies are realizing that cord cutting is growing and want to cater their internet services to that crowd. My ISP/Cable Co. is doing that. They still make a killing on rental fees and tier pricing.

I fear I'll be in that situation rather soon.  The house the wife has announced she loves is about 1/2 mile past the end of cable service.  If we get it I'm going to really miss having our current crappy cable and internet when DSL and satellite are the only alternative.

However Frontier is rolling out FIOs in that area and after a while we might be able to get back onto the high speed interwebz.

this my modem was old and i was maxed out at 25, i could rent a new one with wireless for like 10 bucks a month.

i bought a new one for like 80 bucks off amazon and after a phone call to get it set up I'm now at 50-60.

This is all I'm willing to pay for, and it's faster than I actually need ~90% of the time.

My big time torrents are done on a seedbox with a gig pipe (I grab them via FTP later), so honestly - my Internet connection is pretty idle most of the time, even with a wife and two kids using the shit out of it in the evening.

When you are in the same building as the server hosting the test, the result doesn't count.

I'm stuck on 65/4 broadband from Charter. The DL is adequate but the UL is miserable. A 30MB file upload will cause the link to time out. I can only guess that more channels aren't bonded because the local system isn't built or maintained to a high enough standard to handle the additional return streams.

Extending a node 2.5 miles is neither cheap nor a quick and easy job. It requires a lot of construction, engineering, and the clearing of regulatory hurdles before the first strand goes up (or down). Not to mention that the company doing the plant extension has to be assured a ROI. Just saying.

Actually, that server is hosted by an ISP across town from us. One of their upstream providers is also one of our upstream providers.

Maybe I should setup a test between our buildings and keep it on the multiple 10gb/s fiber connections that are trunked or even keep it within the data center. Could probably get some outrageous results.

Here is a little more fair test. About 300 miles away and our Internet connections are being heavily used right now.

TWC highest residential INT speed is 50/5 in the one market I know they service, so based on that, my guess is that he's at the XNOC or Head End. Or he's in a premium market. Off to double check that.

ETA: jelly about that 5ms ping ^^^

ETA2: I took a zip code in the greater Columbus area that has a median income north of 100k. Plugged that info into google maps. Using earth view, picked a big house on several acre suburban lot and a pool that's bigger than some homes. Used that target addy to get a listing of available speeds from TWC and 50/5 is still the fastest offering. So based on that, yeah, I'm going with NOC or HE.

Time Warner Cable Begins Major Internet Speed Increases in Austin and Surrounding Communities

Faster speeds available to almost 40% of area customers starting June 3

Release Date: 05/21/2014

More than 100,000 Time Warner Cable (TWC) customers in the greater Austin area will have access to Internet speeds up to 300 Megabits per second (Mbps) beginning June 3. Announced in February, all six of the Internet plans offered by TWC will receive an increase in speeds at no additional cost, with speeds up to 6x faster than before. The roll out will continue over the next few months and by the end of this fall, all TWC Internet customers in the greater Austin area will have access to the new speeds. Time Warner Cable will be the only provider to offer ultrafast Internet speeds to all of its residential customers in the market.

As an example, TWC customers who subscribe to the Standard Internet plan, formerly up to 15 Mbps, will now receive up to 50 Mbps, and customers who subscribe to the Ultimate plan, formerly up to 100 Mbps, will receive up to 300 Mbps, at no extra charge. The faster speeds are the result of a nearly $60 million investment by TWC in its Austin area network.

http://www.timewarnercable.com/en/about-us/press/twc-begins-major-internet-speed-increase.html

Right now, I wish I lived anywhere other than in Charter's footprint. It must be nice.

I think it came to Austin, but I have  not heard anything about it coming to Dallas.

I wouldn't use it if it was free anyway.
