Re: How fast is your internet speed?



Was at 50 Mbps for the longest time with Cox, went to 100 recently for fun. Even though I download and stream stuff, can't say I really need anything faster.

It really is pretty fantastic, hope it lasts. Seems consistent across the board.

Better make DAMN sure there is no data cap, which I'd bet dollars to donuts there is. There's always a catch. You could blow through a paltry 600 GB monthly data cap in a few HOURS at those speeds.

If there's no download cap or throttling, then even I agree $80 is very reasonable. Fast forward 6 months, and it'll be going up to $199...

Unlimited data is included if you subscribe to both Internet AND U-verse or DirecTV, which I do (I have U-Verse.) Otherwise there's a $30 upcharge for Unlimited Data if you don't receive television service from them (the cap for internet only subscribes w/o unlimited is 1 tb). So it's $80 unlimited internet w/ cable service, $80 internet w/o cable service and a 1 tb cap, or $110 for unlimited internet only @ 1 gbps.

I've had their service for over a year now, prices have actually gone down.

Finally move away from Verizon DSL to Optimum. Waited 2 years for FIOS but it never progress further than step 2.

Yeah, I've had AT&T Gigabit for a few years now and it's been $80 a month since I got it. The first 6 months was $49/month, then up to $80. Been a great service so far.

Just changed ISPs. This is more than sufficient for my needs.

FIOS just recently upgraded me to their 100/100 plan for free.

Re: How fast is your internet speed?

My cable company offers gigabit service. But it's an extra $40/month and I'd have to upgrade my modem at the local office (which is a pain in the ass).

I'm happy with this. It handles all my needs.
