+1. But until you give us proper access to the internet (without stupid excessively low bandwidth [you know, magical electrons, virtually free to you] caps), don't let the door hit you on your way out.

Great call on TekSavvy m8.

I think youtube throttles on their end cause even if i watch at school on a different connection many times when i pause a video to let it buffer it wont buffer even after coming back 20-30 mins later.

They had to of been throttling vevo or maybe vevo were using their own setup b/c their performance when they first starting hijacking artists pages were like F.U.

""I have never gotten less than the max. advertised speed.""

now that cant be true maybe if you live across the street from comcast.

so youre saying that your average speed is the max speed advertised?
