  2. TW and Comcast are sitting in a tree together. Seems like both of them, especially TW, think 512kbps or 768kbps is enough for home use. But at least this thread shows a hint of proof that Comcast is thinking about the future (download wise). Adelphia upgraded my area to Docsis 2.0 over a year ago (maybe even longer), and now... I'm stuck at 8/512. Ugh... at this point I'd rather pay $30/month for 3/384 DSL but I can't get it. Good luck to those of you who get the faster speeds.
  3. S7R1D3R: take a look at the Speed Chart on testmy.net ("Speed Chart" under Misc Tools at the very top). That chart goes up to OC256, which is almost 14Gbit/s...but right now I believe the fastest widely-used OC line is OC-768 (SBC/ATT is supposed to be upgrading their backbone to this over the summer and I think Microsoft has 1 or more). OC-768 is 40Gbit/s. Some companys are testing OC1536, which is 79.6Gbit/s..but the real kicker will be OC3072, which will be around 159.2Gbit/s I the info for the this at: http://www.biologydaily.com/biology/Broadband_Internet_access (scroll all the way t
  4. Most Adelphia HSI customers on these forums would like the Extreme 16/2 service (me included) but the truth is it's just not bring deployed in many places. Last summer there were adding 1-2 cities per month but I haven't seen their Extreme page updated in at least 2 months...which could be because of the CC/TW deal.
  5. They were supposed to start rolling out 16/1 at the beginning of summer.
  6. Before I upgraded to Premier, I was consistently getting 4.6-4.8mbit down on 4/384. Upload was also over cap - usually around 440kbps.
  7. Could be the "Powerboost" Comcast has started offering if you're d/ling a decent sized file. Still, not your real speed.
  8. Dont think the speed tests are viable with the speed boost because it's not your normal speed - 6mbit or 8mbit depending on your particular package.
  9. :::.. Download Stats ..::: Connection is:: 6385 Kbps about 6.39 Mbps (tested with 20972 kB) Download Speed is:: 779 kB/s Tested From:: http://s1.testmy.net Test Time:: 2006/05/28 - 1:59pm Bottom Line:: 111X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 1.31 sec Tested from a 20972 kB file and took 26.906 seconds to complete Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) Diagnosis: Awesome! 20% + : 76.04 % faster than the average for host (adelphia.net) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-XQSIZDELR Come on Adelphia! Will we ever see 8mbit like Comcast and Time Warne
  10. I can totally understand why you're mad because in truth, you're getting at best 70% of your advertised download speed....but hey, your connection is a lot faster than what's currently available in most other countries in the world. Be happy!
  11. Maybe wait a week or two more before you get fed up. They could be doing something along the lines of those infamous "network upgrades."
  12. 16/1 from Comcast, 10/1 (possibly) from Charter, Verizon FiOS, OOL Boost.... WTF, come on Adelphia! Many people wonder why Adelphia customers are anxious about this takeover with Comcast/Time Warner. It's because some of us want fast(er) speeds too (amoung other things)
  13. pretty sure the upgrade should be 16/1
  14. That's good to hear - and your new test is very close to your 6mbit cap, so you have to be happy. Sucks you had to go through much, and lose files to achieve your desired results but at least now your system is clean and you can always rebuild on files.
