[NYTimes] Cheap, Ultrafast Broadband? Hong Kong Has It - Page 16

post #151 of 181
I wish. Here in central USA my small city has two ISPs that service our address and the cheaper one is charging us $45 for 3mbps down and 512kbps up.

Isn't Wildblue satellite internet? If so, your pings are always going to be ****

0 ms Ping ? You are typing from inside the Internet, right ?

That 450mb result is too... Wireless-n to be believable. Have you turned your anti-virus off ?

Mm, anti virus is on, Wireless-n to be believable? I don't get it?

I pay $60 for 20Mbps and 2Mbps up on Mediacom(the midwest Comcast doppelganger).
Not sure why I am getting almost 30 but I hear it's pretty common for most people. The cost is a little nuts and it is going to go up after the promo ends frown.gif.

Powerboost, but it only lasts around 30secs to a minute.

Not fake. Hes using a Bank's network. Big companies may run their own ISP. Basically taping in at datacenter's or something.

One of my clients just rolled out a FIOS 35/35, I am so jealous. TWC is garbage in my area.

This doesn't seem very impressive for an area under 500 sq mi.

What I meant is that 450mbps is the exact maximum of a wireless-n connection.

Are you connected wirelessly ?

Ir your are, it could also mean that your connection is so good, it actually maxes out the wireless-n connection. If you connected with an ehternet cable, you could probably get even more.
