Tried a speed test on my other rig, connected to the net via WiFi in my home, not too bad actually, I've watched Netflix on this rig without experiencing any latency issue.

Right, because the Federal government does a great job with all of the infrastructure they own now...
It would have to be better than what the mish mash of money hungry ISP's are doing right now

Compared to the EU, Asia and pretty much the rest of the planet, Canadians and maybe some Americans get crappy internet at very high prices.
so so true man. Like the company Mediacomm wants only 40 for the first year but after that it goes to 100+ :mad:

Apparently not in this situation most U.S. ISP's wouldn't know how to innovate if it jumped up and kicked them in the goolies

if by that you mean min speeds of 100Mbps down and 50Mbps up and proper unlimited data going upto 1Gbps down and 500Mbps up also with Unlimited Data then yeah I guess our govt paper pushers have it right for the lowest common denominator then

I had to look up my own post. I forgot this conversation.

I wouldn't complain at all if that was the case. But it isn't happening.

Why does it blow your mind? US was the first to invest in the infrastructure and the US is huge. It is very easy to run fiber around modern South Korean cities and suburbs.
I actually have faster speeds available to me here in Bumfuk Kansas (a little college cowtown, not even a big city like KC Metro or Wichita) than I did when I lived in North Jersey. I'm not sure what they offer now but when I left Optimum held the monopoly and had successfully blocked Verizon from installing FiOS in our area. I don't even think they offered tiers at that point, it was just 5/1 or 15/1 depending on how built your area was. When I moved here, the local phone company had just finished installing about 10,000 miles of fiber, and bringing FTTH to every property in their service area (which covers pretty much all of central/western Kansas and eastern Colorado) - even little tiny "Population 23" towns and rural properties in the middle of wheat fields - offering up to Gigabit with very little restrictions. No data caps, no throttling, no restriction on running servers. Even the local cable provider offered up to 50Mbps (although it only had a 512k uplink and was capped at 200GB). Yet companies like TWC and Comcast just keep jacking up the prices and imposing more restrictions (basically making it harder to be a cord cutter and affect their video income) while offering very little back to the consumer.

I pay for 100/100 but they offer 250, 500, and gigabit symmetrical. It's $100 a month, up to $230 a month for the gigabit, but they've never increased prices since I've been here. In fact prices have DROPPED two or three times. Once AT&T finishes their fiber upgrade and the cable company finishes their DOCSIS 3.1 buildout and competition emerges at the 250/500/gigabit tiers, they'll probably drop again.

Yeah AT&T has had crews all over this town with Ditch Witches pulling new trunk fiber for the past couple months. I have no clue what their timetable is but it seems like they're making progress on that. I haven't seen any last mile work yet though so I don't know what their strategy is, especially given we already have one FTTH ISP.

Ive noticed fiber crossboxes next to the VRAD/DSLAM-RT(fttn) besides the existing copper SAC/SAI/BBoxes (pots/dslam-co F1-F2). I used to work for them in 2013-2014, it was fttn then except some brand new neighborhoods then...

So the older neighborhoods that have the new fiber crossboxes latch into the vrad/dslam-RT

We still have towns out here where I live ,that don't even have broadband yet. They dont even have cable coaxial running on their streets. Its antennas, or dish. Towns incorporated 400 years ago & still, nothing
