    cox seems to be giving higher down speeds and now as high up speeds. cablevision uses the same tech but the speeds are more balanced.

    Here's mine. I'm actually getting more than what I pay for. I pay for 6Mb/384Kb. And on large downloads on a fast server, I average about 1MB/s, and I can upload torrents at 140KB/s constant. So it actually works out to about 8Mb/1Mb. Not too bad. Still want FiOS tho. lol.
