62.54 at 7:55pm. It actually gets higher in the evening. Verizon should get sued for slander.

So you pay extra for Boost Plus, which I have you quoted as originally saying you don't have, and you use all this extra bandwidth to post on CityData. Brilliant.

Simply brilliant.

It wasn't Verizon, it was the FCC that ran the broadband test program. It showed Cablevision does not deliver consistent speeds. As much as I want to root for the local CV, they have the most unreliable internet service. That's a fact. Picture quality has improved a lot though.

I'd really like to see some screenshots of these ridiculous download speeds you're talking about.

I feel the need, the need for speed! - Verizon PolicyBlog

Ive been testing that fcc theory out and its actually false. My speeds have actually increased in the evening, not decreased. thats why I keep posting up my speeds, that of course Gordon has asked me to at least a dozen times or so.

Cables next tests should be a lot better. ON the 15/2 packgage they increased speeds to 20/2 while keeping advertised package speeds the same . The next tests should actually show higher then advertised speeds.

Boost is pretty impressive in DL speed...But how consistent is that?

I don't think it's so much the advertised speed that's the problem, I think it's the drop in bandwidth at random moments that people have issue with (and that's causing the chart results to look like that). I remember FiOS used to do that years ago for a short while. At peak evening hours it would be a little frustrating to use. But it's so consistent now -- close to 100%.

the numbers havent really changed. I am constantly checking it through the day and they stay in the 59 range and for once, actually hit the 64 mark which was quite impressive. Ill do another one around 9, the time which the report gives as the slowest for cable.

I've asked you for your UPload speed.

Still waiting.

PS show me the post where you said you recently changed to Boost.

PPS Don't care either way.
