I've always been happy with my download speed, I just wish upload was faster.

Same here. I have the 12m/896k tier.

we're waiting for CentruryLink to upgrade us from ADSL2+ to VDSL2. Once that happens we'll have up to 40Mbps down(40M/20M/12/7.5/1.5) and 20Mbps up (20M/5M/896k) available

Was with D* for over 10 years then switched to the dark-side a few years ago and haven't looked back. I truly enjoy the 50% savings and uninterrupted service

Download is good but the upload speed here stinks.

I should post mine.. I recently got an offer to upgrade from FairPoint (formerly Verizon Fios).

I *was* paying $50/mo for 'naked' Fiber - 15/2
Now I'm paying $45/mo for 30/15

On top of that, they apparently had to do some equipment upgrades somewhere in the loop (my neighborhood was amongst the first that Verizon strung with fiber in the area). So it ended up costing them money (in labor) while I now save $60/year.

Speedtest.net backed up their claims. I was very skeptical of FairPoint when Verizon sold out to them but it's been a VERY good experience.

My AT&T 6Mb/s connection.

Today I moved to Comcast for internet. This is advertised to be 12Mb/s.

Posted Image

That's a seven fold increase in speed.

The moral of the story...In SE CT, AT&T sucks. :D

Since it costs 2.4¢ to produce a penny, my 2¢ worth is really 4.8¢ worth.  That 4.8¢ is my own and not the 4.8¢ of DIRECTV, Dish, or anyone else for that matter.

Funny you should bring this up this afternoon. Our Comcast connection got tired this afternoon as it occasionally does. I don't even know what Comcast advertises, but I had to methodically ping my way to the Sutro Tower (San Francisco). Seems they had some kind of traffic jam going in.

So being frustrated, after testing out the traffic, I ran some speed tests - first to Comcast in Portland, OR, then to San Francisco (no Comcast option there), and then to Comcast in Boston. As you can see the results are all over the place. So then I ran a test on a Santa Rosa CA local ISP site - 100 miles south of us - just to see what I was getting to that point.

It's ironic that I could get to Boston, MA faster than Portland, OR. That Sonic.net speed is around what I usually get using Speedtest.net.
