Anyone else getting the new high internet speeds?

Of course it looks like the internet is slower now than before... I guess everyone is hogging all the new bandwidth so I still hate Comporium!

If I could ask a question, is Comporium the only Internet Service Provider in the area?

I just checked...getting 5.54 MBPS downloading, 549 KBPS uploading (I pay the $44.95 rate with Comporium) Not sure how accurate this is, but it came from here: Speed Test Tool Would be interesting to see how others results compare.

Not too shabby, but I wish their HDTV service was half as good as their internet!

Thanks, Zurkowsky. So that's for the whole Charlotte Metro (in SC), Fort Mill, Tega Cay, Lake Wylie, area?

No, you will need to contact them to find out if you are in their service area. Comporium services the biggest part of the area's you named though.

Checked my speeds and upload/download was about 9986Kbps & 11,314Kbps.
I am on fiber and pay for Package 1.

The thing that concerns me is that Comporium hasn't updated their Monthly Transfer Limits
Comporium Communications
Still says only 50GB for Package 1...

I am sure with all the new Hulu and Netflix streaming, I will hit that easily.

DipDog3 has pointed out the reason why I'm hesitant to move over. Has anyone experienced the charge for over use? Also, has anyone clocked going over the data limit and had nothing happen?
