    See... Now you're just trying to confuse me. I see what you're doing there.

    Ok, so it's entirely possible I saw it there, rather than in the Hot section.

    Anyway, now that I got a letter in the mail from Charter about my free upgrade to 20Mbit, let's see what we get:

    This is actually really amazing since now, in 2009, I'm paying the same as I did in 2002 for service. But in 2002, I was really happy with the 512/128 service I was getting (because it was the only game in town). Now, I'm more than 30x the speed of that. Not bad for 7 years.

    Now if we can just get the gigabit that they have in some areas in Japan rolled out here. Then I'll REALLY be rockin.

    I think one of the qualifications to post in this thread should be if you're actually allowed to download pr0n on the line.

    On a symetrical 5mb fiber connection. It is damn amazing having a direct tie in to a backbone.

    AT&T, apparently, does not. My home connection is barely adequate for Hulu and such.

    I hate myself...and feel much shame as I surf the web at INSANE speeds. Seriously though, the difference between the service and the quality of FIOS and cable/DSL is vast. I've used Time Warner, ATT, and Comcast and I can't recommend Verizon enough.

    I can never get a consistent and correct speed for my bandwidth, however, I'm on 7Mbps/512Kbps on Road Runner (much better than the 1Mbps/384Kbps I got way back on Cox Cable - which was later upgraded to 4Mbps/384Kbps).

    The Dallas (speakeasy) server on speedtest.net consistently gives me a speed of 15Mbps+/512Kbps, but the Ft. Worth server gives me a speed of around 4-5Mbps, but here is what my correct speed is:

    For example, one of the tests from the Dallas server:
