post #52 of 100
Just called verizon....

fios is available in the next town over (5 min drive).

only comcast and century link are available in my town..... and century link doesn't have fiber in the state.


I spent the last few hours looking over my towns legislation and governing bodies to figure out who I have to talk to to get this situation rectified.

In DSL/Cable, a modem is converting between a binary signal and analog signal; the signal to your PC or router is digital and the signal over the copper wire is analog.

The signal over copper is analog always, be it DSL, cable or ethernet. Modulation is digital.

Even with fiber there are some losses so you need to modulate the signal to apply some QoS. So calling it a modem, specially if it has no routing capabilities, is perfectly fine. If you get picky if it has Ethernet ports it is a modem anyway.

The legal things I'd do for your service. I'm paying nearly $100 per month for 25mbps, granted it could be worse but still "feels bad man"

Damn that is almost as bad as the 2Mbps, May Gaben bless your location.

I am paying $30 for 150Mbps biggrin.gif

No complaints here either. I am not even envious of anyone with GB internet thumb.gif

Exactly how i feel the 100Mbps is more than enough for me "Doesnt mean i wont take a faster connection if available biggrin.gif "

Signed up for this; my cost stays the same but speeds go from 100/10 to 940/880...pretty no brainer, even if a small nagging part of me realizes I'm probably fine with 100Mbps.

Pretty excited about this. Finally affordable gigabit service arrives in NY. I've just ordered my installation and it looks like installation fees are waived for new customer as well. Coming from TWC 300/30 service that's $90 without equipment, I think they're really going to feel the burn in the coming months.

Christ, and I thought 100Mbps was fast....

100Mbps up? That must be some awesome internet you have.

The sad part is, people with 10yr old PCs with HDDs claim they can tell a difference. In latency, sure - but a lot of people jump on the faster internet bandwagon without even a PC to support it. thumb.gif In some towns it has gotten to the point where an m.2/ssd/etc is necessary for DL purposes - that is a small niche. Facebook can only load up so fast....

Even a 10 year old PC with a SATA2 HDD can write at 125MB/sec so yeah they should see a difference in download speeds. Granted it's not common to find a source that will upload at that rate, I'm able to pull 123MB/sec from steam and sometimes origin but it's not the norm.

I guess all I am trying to say is there is a "Faster internet!" bandwagon....and 95/100 people shouldn't be clamoring for it. wink.gif Almost no one can tell the difference between 50/10 connection and a 1Gb/200 connection unless they are "downloaders" - we just eliminated most of the people wanting it.... Placebo I guess. tongue.gif
