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
I have centurylink dsl and pay for 10Mb down and .78 up. I tend to get pretty cose to both advertised speeds.
Good speed tonight for us:
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.
This is my home test. My work link is WAAAY slower. We have bottom of the line uVerse.
My AT&T 6Mb/s connection.
Today I moved to Comcast for internet. This is advertised to be 12Mb/s.
That's a seven fold increase in speed.
The moral of the story...In SE CT, AT&T sucks.
MY Comcast...advertised at 20 down and 2 up
Mine is advertised at 12 down & 2 up.
Just keep an eye out, Mike! As in, OK now, sucks later! Still faster than DSL.
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.
Blue Ridge Communications G10 service
They have 6 speeds to choose from. I just picked the fastest one I could afford. LOL!
They have :1.5, 5, 10, 15, 30, 50,mbps Ranging from $39.99-$119.99 without subscribing to tv servies.
The other option is Verizon
they have only 1 and 3 Mbps services in my area From $29.99-$39.99
DSL isn't always bad..
Time Warner Roadrunner Ultimate. 50/5. Not bad but I wish FIOS was available around here.
