It's a rather big change from 3/0.75 ADSL for around CAD79/mo that I had before
Yea same, was shocked to hear they wired up the building for free, out of 17 people only 5-6 have fiber so not much of a load. It's fiber all the way to the router it's pretty nuts. Router we got has 7 wifi antennas as well i don't even need an aftermarket one, signal reaches outside the building no problem it's pretty nuts.

I don't think you understood the post to which you replied. The point they made was that there is no causal link between net neutrality repeal and scheduled infrastructure improvements continuing apace. Plan speeds != specific content throttling or really any of the other concerns presented by supporters of net neutrality.

Yeah, not all areas are getting bumps up in speed or options. My parents actually can no longer get DSL (even though it use to be an option). They now stuck to shelling out for expensive satellite with caps or 4G LTE which is still not cheap and the signal is crappy for internet where they are at.

While I'm down here in the pandhandle of Florida (internet still out from the hurricane atm). But, when my connect was up, got pretty good speeds (had higher speeds than what the plan stated). Offset though, I actually have the rare choice of three to four ISPs. Nutty enough one ISP selling 100Mbps down for like 40 bucks but usually can get them to do special deal down to 20 bucks (compentition is wonderful when an area has it). For me, 100Mbps down is enough as I'm right by the node boxes (ain't kidding, one is right smack by the wall of my townhouse and the other is in the front yard). When the connection was up before the hurricane, I easily pulled down 500-600GBs a month.

I'm just a crazy nutty gal that likes computer hardware.

Looks like google fiber lit a fire under isp butts. Guess they realized if they didn't do something about internet speeds it's only a matter of time before someone solves the problem. If I were a cable company I'd have to be aware that most customers would drop me like a good habit given half the chance.

But then you need to understand that most smaller ISPs dont have anywhere near the budget that Google does, especially considering google started right off with fiber and didn't have to pay to upkeep coax lines. Here we have ADSL and just jumped right to FTTH, no coax waste of money. The company thats doing it, Orange is not charging anyone for their building wired em, in my city at least. All we paid was 50€ activation and a few more things like extra cable box. Other then that it's pretty impressive.

AFAIK AT&T also has data caps, right?

Yes but I've never been asked or charged for exceeding. It's really hard to Exceed a 1TB cap with 50 down. Keep in mind on Uverse ADSL that your TV and phone come through that too so you're often only getting like 25 down.

People saying paying 1k for an install is expensive to get fiber? That's a joke right? We offered to pay them 1 million USD for our entire subdivision and they wouldn't do it.

Not really hard when most rural DSL ISP's can only serve 1-2Mbps, thats only 0.4-0.8 more Mbps. It's nice to hear but still pathetic. Now if ISP's move more Fiber to the node or premise you'd see huge improvements in speed and quality. Also moving from gigabit to 10/40/100 GbE on core routers and switches with big pipes between hosts, one can only dream! But we do alright in Southeast MN, mostly straight Fiber or Fiber to cable node, and Ubiquiti point to point out in the rural districts with Fiber to the tower.

I live in an area where Spectrum (TWC) once dominated. We have a local provider who quickly rolled out gig fiber over the last few years and boy did that get Spectrum's attention right quick. They went from garbage speeds to starting speeds at 200/20. Granted, that isn't close to fiber...but where you cannot get the local provider yet, Spectrum upped their game tenfold.

I feel your pain. Almost twinsies on our speeds. Mine is advertised as 8M, but similar speeds to yours. My upload is a touch faster, but this low doesn't matter.

Guess I can't complain considering I'm getting TV + Internet for like $125 a month. 400/25 (though I usually hover around 450mbps). 1,000 d/u is available in my area for an extra $30 a month and but there is a $250 install fee which I haven't justified yet.
