Homes built in the Later 90s early 2000s are built wire friendly just about.
Yeah, my house is about a century too old for that.
In defense, it is possible to run wires without too much hassle. The issue is that I can only use walls on the inside of the house as well as the fact that I don't have a spot marked out in the attic for a patch panel for the modem and gateway and such, so it's a big project if it undertake it.
wire wrap,- Smart panels are good but you might aswell have a switch in the panel with the modem, and wifi routers across the house on cat5 ethernet (2 pairs used in cat 5-white-green,white-orange), gigabit ethernet uses all 4 pairs Blue, Orange, Green,Brown depending on size of home. Dialtone (Voip or Pots) would have to use a separate cat 5 line if using gigabit ethernet. Always have 2 cat 5 or better and coax home runs from where the telco box is to the smart panel (patch panel)
One of the 5 (5-route-connection) connections at my company:
They are combined through an array of PCs using our custom software to deliver 5 10k kB/s downstreams and one single 50k kB/s+ upload (hosting'n'stuff). The test above is what you get at an ordinary desk (regular employee). Whole company is wired.
Three shots at 20, on the 5g router at the coffee shop. I was hitting upper 20's yesterday downloading some Steam games. I am LOVING my new intel AC 7260!!
The Coffee Shop, same one, w/ my 11n single band...http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/threads/post-your-speedtest-net-speeds.101525/page-34#post-2956889

Its been awhile
Got home from vacation and just about shit myself at my randomly upgraded TWC speeds:
Should apparently be 200/20 with a new modem. Upgraded for free from 30/5.
And I'm already "happy" with that because it's usually 1mbps down and 0.1mbps up...for a package that is "up to 2mbps"...
Brought my SteamBox in to work. (We're an ISP. I think there's a 100mbps link somewhere that's limiting me.)
I get giggly when things go fast.
This gave me the giggles.

Wow, since when did FIOS start offering symmetric bandwidth?
I believe about 2 or 3 weeks ago. I originally signed up for 75Mbps/35Mbps about a month ago for install on the 1st of Aug. I'd say about 2 weeks ago, I saw a post on dslreports.com stating that they were moving to symmetrical bandwidth. I called the Verizon and had them change my install to 150Mbps up and down. This will be pushed out to existing customers soon. You may be able to call and request the upgrade ahead of time. All of their tiers have gone symmetrical and they have bumped the lowest tier to 25Mbps vs 15/5 for the old one.
Link for existing customers.
Verizon doesn't serve up my area. My only options are Comcast for cable and Fairpoint for fiber and so far, Comcast is doing pretty well, although I too would like symmetric bandwidth. I used to have 50Mbit down and out of nowhere Comcast upgraded me (for free) to 105Mbit (119Mbit realized), but I'm still stuck with 11-12Mbit up, which is still perfectly adequate as I don't tend to host stuff out of my home.
Surprisingly, Verizon is my only option. Usually on military bases your only choice is the cable company.
This is with me running a VPN and my kids streaming Netflix
With only me on the internet.
Me using mobile data
Honestly the house speed isn't that bad for gaming and such. What's killing you is that damn ping. Have you tried a different router? Something seems off with a DL speed like that and such a high ping.
Tried with 4 different routers and 2 different modems. The speeds are just shit all summer because there are more people on their terrible network. The speeds are acceptable after midnight (10down, 2 up, and 40ish ping). It's either I'm with this company (with no data cap) or I switch to someone slightly faster and only have 40GB a month.
Man something is up with that ping. Have you called them about this?
When they know they're the only decent option in your area they don't give a shit.
I would try man.
Well, Verizon FiOS in this area is doing a mass cut over to make the upload speeds the same as the download speed paid for.
As an example... I had 75/35; and, now after some provisioning fixing ('cause someone knocked out my service), we now have 75/75.
pretty easy on fttp, not so easy on copper... Any home with FTTP has been built within the last 10 years pretty much- already have cat5/coax going from the phone box area in to attic at a junction or to a smart panel in a masterbedroom...
DOCSIS 3.0 is perfectly capable of providing 150/150mbit and considering (in my case Comcast's) the backbone is fiber, the only thing I lose is 6ms on round-trip communication to the internet by having last-mile copper, which is acceptable IMHO. What I'm annoyed with is Comcast not following suit despite my 119mbit download already.
