  1. To me this is a slow test: Paying $94 a month....
  2. DSLreports show the following & I am paying $80 per month for this speed.
  3. Ookla Speedtest.net shows my speed as: Ping 22ms 81.81 Mbps down 11.81 Mpbs up I pay $80 USDlrs for 100 Mbps down to Cox Communication - Both the Century Link and Cox are advertising 1 Gig service on the radio, but that is only available in a new expensive housing areas where new fiber has been installed, and also where it was previously installed and activated before the housing bubble collapsed.

Las Vegas Monthly Cost $71.43 JR
  6. In Vegas I pay $71.46 for 12 Mbps down and 1.5 Mbps up account... We are going to DOCSIS 3 so I presume my monthly charge will rise again very soon... You want to look at this: Jeffrey M. O'Brien at Fortune magazine is the latest American with a sluggish DSL connection to suffer from Asian broadband envy, noting that Hong Kong provider City Telecom offers symmetrical 100 Mbps broadband service for about $13 a month. What's more, the ISP offers these users a money back guarantee: if they don't see at least 80% of their promised speed, their ISP pays them. Twice the amount the user paid for service. 391,000 subscribers are enjoying a quick $13 a month Internet service, and the company increased their revenues 34%... Cloud computing works in a good percentage of Asian and European cities with their faster Internet service, but here in the US we have a long way to go before we have the speeds to have access to the types of services they take for granted... City Telecom offers a guarantee? Can you imagine watching entertainment on-line without interruption, or buffering or they pay you? kevin516, you do not have our speeds and we have features that you will enjoy some time in the future, maybe you will get lucky and have City Telecom start building a internet infrastructure in your immediate future... http://www.globenewswire.com/newsroom/news.html?d=177155 JR
  7. Reporting from Las Vegas, I do not have a DOCSIS 3 modem yet, I have ordered one and it should arrive tomorrow. With the new Motorola SB6120 I am anxious to discover what speeds I can secure as some of the testers here in the Vegas Valley are reporting 50-70 Mbps and some are close to 100 Mbps. The local web page has been changed and with the new pages the 1.5 Mbps has disappeared, now only two tiers of service - 10 Mbps and 18 Mbps. 10 Mbps and 18 Mbps is what Arizona and Souther Cal have had the last two years, so it seems Vegas will still not be moving up enough to notice unless you are running three of four computers simultaneously behind a router, then the extra 6 Mbps of service certainly will assist... I pay for 12 Mbps and normally get 10 Mbps but the cable is a bit older in my area and with the wind and heat there are weeks when I go down 3 or 4 times a week...

  8. That is twice the speed being offered in this market... But slower than most any Euro location, as the FCC allows Americans to be sold slower speeds at twice the price... But with the fall of the US dollar against other currencies our pricing is getting closer to what others are paying for the faster high speed Internet service. Most developed countries are getting an annual price reduction and increase in speeds. Seems in the US, we are getting an occasional speed increase, and an annual price increase... Maybe in the near future America will get lucky and have the cable industry deregulated. Separating the cable line company from the entertainment, Internet , and cable phone suppliers, the outrageous bundling nonsense will disappear. Prices for entertainment & Internet service will come down with competition, and that will be a good consumer benefit of deregulation. JR

  10. JasonPC, I am in Vegas I have the Premier tier, 10,000,000 bps down and 1,000 bps up. How can you measure your speeds with power-boost obscuring all speed testing...

Before speed-boost Cox testing and DSLreports were almost the same. After speed-boost a great discrepancy started occurring between the two testing sites. However it I use a stopwatch and do a large download via newsgroups or ftp, I am averaging about 7 Mbps. JR the postman
  11. After more than a year of struggling with this upgraded Cox service, I say the Highwinds Media Group still is unable to consistly provide better service than Cox did in 2004... I understand the Volume of newsgroup posting increased dramatically. If you take the time to read, Cox.internet.discussion.newsgroups you will see it is full of the same problems posts since 2006. I solved all the Highwinds service problems by purchasing an outside premium Usenet account... JR
  12. jeffwalker9999, I was under the impression that Cox fastest residential service in Las Vegas was 10,000,000 bps down and 1,000,000 bps up. I use a Cox sold 5120 surfboard modem, and share the internet connection using a Netgear 614 version 2 websafe router... No way to measure real internet speeds since Cox implemented speedboost or short time accelerator. Using the Cox speed test: http://test.lvcm.com/ I show download speeds consistently in the 30,000,000 bps range and uploads of 1,000,000 bps When I use the Java speed tool at dslreports.com it keeps 3 tests by zipcode, I mostly show 11,000,000 bps download. Running two computers systems sharing the netgear router, they are both running a 64-bit Linux operating system, so can not comment on cablenut settings...

  13. derek22x, Las Vegas, I have had support out several times the last few days... On and off - connection and no connection... Connection is fluctuating in at the street, another maintenance issue for the cable in my street, nothing the tech could correct... Digital TV is also effected... Several neighbors are livid, since it has not been fixed in a week...
