i used to work for mediacom, installing digi cable and high speed internet. id run speed checks on bandwidthplace.com i think it was, for the customers. when i was there, it was locked at a 1.5m supposadly, id run tests and it was always at like 2.1, but for 3 weeks everyone was at like 3.5-4.2 is the highest i saw. then it went back to the norm 2.0

You guys are lucky.

I have Charter for a cable company and they *finally* upgraded us to 2MBit. We are still behind ComCast in terms of speed, but at least we get 512 for upload which is cool.

Do you guys in Canada still have Rogers trying to 'meter' your bandwidth usage every month?
