I need to convince my company to open a data center in Europe and then transfer me there.
What's the cap? Most ISPs don't offer that much bandwidth without some fine print.
"You must comply with the bandwidth usage, data storage and other limitations on the Service that are in effect from to time. Mediacom has established a monthly data consumption threshold of 250Gigabytes (GB). If your usage exceeds these limitations, Mediacom may at its sole discretion , charge you for the excess usage, reduce transmission speed or other Service parameters, limit, suspend or terminate the Service or take other actions."
You are limited to 250GB of transfer every month. If you go over that, we may decide to do one of the following: Charge you more, slow you down, shape your traffic, kill your account entirely, or maybe something else. In truth, we'll probably just send you a nastily-worded letter indicating that you'd better not do it again or else, since we really can't afford the PR hit we'll take if we start doing any of those things for real.
I love the language in that. I wish they would just say what they mean:
Looks like I got auto-upgraded again.
Stay away from the UK anyway, I get a pathetic 2MB down at my city centre place in Aberdeen and I'm paying for BT's top package....
To add to the rage this is my parents result, they are paying 1/3 of the price for twice the speed.
The connection is ADSL 20/1.
Will be upgraded 20/2 very soon at no extra charge.
But I really really want to have a fiber connection instead.
It's a lot faster and you get a much better upload speed.
1 and 2 Mbit is ridiculous IMO.
US is way behind in a lot of areas, and it hurts.
Â£20 with a decent provider gets;
Peaks at 1.1MBps on a good day, no caps, no shaping (yet).
I do know that sometimes when they release a new speed tier, they upgrade us cheapasses speeds for free. So, what the hell, I'll reboot the modem and see if they gave me any lovin'. I pay for 12/1 speeds
shhh, don't tell anyone
at least I can watch (cough Comcast) Netflix
To closest server:
Over the pond:
It used to be ~25mbps, we moved and now it is <2. For the same price! F#*(
someday the US will catch up...:rolleyes2
I'm being limited by our office firewall. I should run this test from the actual data center...
Home DSL, No complaints.
Moved from AT&T U-verse to WideOpenWest.
AT&T U-Verse. Not too shabby for $30/month. Hopefully I can keep this in the new apartment dependent upon the quality of the phone wiring, otherwise I may have to get Comcast.
Wow...Delton, MI. That's in the middle of nowhere...
