No they still are terrible. I am stuck with it. I live rural so it's the only choice I have besides dial up. We can't even stream a video half the time and you still have to do most after 2 AM. Lucky for me I work a late shift so i can take advantage of the 2 AM to 8 AM time frame. I can get decent download speeds but the upload is killing me. I used to be able to game somewhat even with the ping. Now I lose connection even for email and Facebook. This with even a new upgraded hard drive, new router and cables.
