    Not bad for being 2400 miles away :D. $30 a month, GREAT way to spend it. I have faster upload speeds then cable, and an equivalent download speed, despite all their commercials.

    Cool for a 2Mb connection i guess it's only 15€ a month...

    PS->Try different servers cause some servers may be closer to you and give you worse results ;)

    It does suffice for what I do now but I wish I had my old 10mb/1mb connection I had from COX back at Irvine, and its cheaper than this too.

    ok for my closest location
    [​IMG]

    And the furthest location

    [​IMG]

    all on comcast standard service 6mb/350k with a modem that don't use speed boost because what good is 8megs if it only stays that fast for a minute :nutkick:

    and can anyone explain why cables upload speed is so disproportionate im thinking of switching to Verizon fios 10m/10m for the same $50 usd if it ever is available in my area
