    That is just a rude amount of bandwidth.

    No upgrades since 2013, but the connection is actually getting better.

    My download speed doubled in less than two years but upload has not changed.

  • DontCallMeKelsoDontCallMeKelso Kelso 'The Great Asshole' San Jose, CA Icrontian

    I dont even know how, but my speed is up 50mb/s in 1.5 weeks... uhhhh no one tell comcast...

    More and more I just want more upload bandwidth. My download is so far over what I need I don't even care. Amazing all the same that you have 177Mb/s. That was just unheard of 3 years ago on a residential connection.

    I remember some years ago when I had crappy DSL and everyone was raving about cable and how you could get faster speeds than what you pay for during times of low congestion. I have yet to experience that since I've started using cable. On the other hand I've also never had a moment where I've received less than what I pay for.

    I had to get rid of my work desktop computer that had a LAN port but I saved this screenshot in awe.

    I have said it before... but that is just obscene.

    Apparently an outage gave me a speed increase.

    Hotel wifi sucks.

  • SnarkasmSnarkasm Madison, WI Icrontian

    Still better than almost 20% of other Americans! Pathetic.

    I hate hotel wifi. They never build out their pipe enough for it to be worth it. So you have 800 people fighting for probably 20Mbit of bandwidth.

    Not only that, but they never deploy their WAPs correctly either, so half the time I find my devices dropping and reconnecting constantly. It's like they don't put overlapping WAPs on different channels, and most of them definitely don't tune their minimum SNR values.

    Sugar talked with ATT today. Ended up with a little upgrade.

    That's pretty good, I guess. Better than I'm paying for anyway. That bufferbloat though... that's where my nightly packet loss is coming from. Effing oversold Comcast.

    Haven't checked the QoS settings on my router in a while and after reading on Netgear's forum that I don't really need QoS enabled if I have a 100 mbit connection I decided to disable it. Apparently I was missing out on 10mbit of upload.

    That's awesome. I know you were struggling with that 1mb. Glad to see it :)

    You guys....

    TDS is rolling out fiber in the area where my new house is getting built, and they think they can get it to me. I might finally live the dream!
