Last month our service was switched from Adelphia to Comcast.

 

With Adelphia:

Rated speed: 3.0/384

Actual speed: 4.1/425

 

With Comcast:

Rated speed: 6.0/384

Actual speed: 4.9/360

 

Is it common for ISPs (e.g. Comcast) to provide speeds slower than what they're advertising?

The decreased up speed is a bit of a killer for me since I'm using Lingo VOIP phone service and slow up speeds result in call quality issues on the other end.

Where are you getting that $15 month? Everywhere I see aircard service its closer to $40+ a month?

 

:shake:

 

I work for the company. I can only get one card for that price I found out. I got my mom a card and its $30 a month.

 

Here's my last tests.

i have ethernet built into the wall at my apartment, it was avertised as "high speed" internet access the very smart people who built my complex the whole place runs through a single 10.5M connection ( a few T1's hooked together ) there are over 650 people trying to get as much bandwidth as possible ( while being shoved through some very low quality banwidth shapers ) so TCP connections work fine but UDP oohhh man abbout a 50% packet loss due to the fact they are being lost in the shapers

I don't know why my desktop got a little bit slower download speed but it beat my laptop in upload speed. I'm happy with those speeds. :)
