Hey Head-Case, what's your bandwidth like?

Recommended Posts

I just wished there were more people there. The place was dead while I was there.

It's not so bad now. I find plenty of stuff to do on campus and in Rochester (but it sucks if you don't have a car.)

We've now got internets at the new house on the Vineyard.

Damn sight faster than I get on the mainland. Of course it's sodding Comcast and probably bandwidth capped at some absurdly low level.

Not to mention they supposedly uses some kind of "boost" trick that makes it look faster on speed testing websites.

Just self installed a Docsis 2.0 Modem I got at a garage sale this morning for $5.

Slightly improved performance over the leased Docsis 1.0 modem which was EOL'ed ( since 1/11 - thanks for the heads up comcast - not)

So thats $7 + tax, less a month that I now have to hand over to comcast. ROI of < 1 month = WIN ! :)

Spent the afternoon with Comcast... I am back on the internets...

Seems to be doing pretty good:

Speeds at work, where I've been not able to use internet for a while, due to their giving new login credentials. I wish I had this at home, though there things have improved quite a bit.

My folks' Roadrunner service up in Maine isn't all that great either, though in their case, both download and upload speed are atrocious. Of course, my in-laws' service (cable) is so bad that it's noticeably faster if I leave my iPhone on 3G than use their WiFi.

Predictably, this same cable company recently reassured my father-in-law multiple times they offered HD service in his area, only to tell him otherwise after he had replaced the TV.
