Whew... I should've read this post last night. I'm at my parents' house and I tested my connection on their wi-fi RR connection:

:::.. testmy.net test results ..:::

Download Connection is:: 7746 Kbps about 7.75 Mbps (tested with 12160 kB)

Download Speed is:: 946 kB/s

Upload Connection is:: 1243 Kbps about 1.24 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB)

Upload Speed is:: 152 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net (Server 1)

Test Time:: 2006/09/16 - 9:22am

D-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-T1GVF75CM

U-Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-SA58JPD0N

User Agent:: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.0.6) Gecko/20060728 Firefox/1.5.0.6 [!]

Couldn't figure out why I was getting such crazy upload speeds!

I just wanted to correct/clarify some information here.  Tampabay RR has 3 speed packages:

15360 Kbps / 2048 Kbps

10240 Kbps / 1024 Kbps

8192 Kbps / 512 Kbps

RR service providers have upgraded speeds in various locations, and will continue to do so.  Trouble is, it takes a lot of preparation to make sure that the connection will be stable with such an increase in network traffic.

15360 Kbps / 2048 Kbps <-- I wish I had that

Time Warner in Syracuse only offers

15360 Kbps / 1024 Kbps

10240 Kbps / 1024 Kbps <-- I currently have this

Kinda pointless to offer higher download speeds for more money when its the upload we want.

it is point less, but they still think you want download. and upload bandwidth costs more.

True...............

So why don't they offer it as an option ?

I'd gladly pay more, if they offered 15360 Kbps / 2048 Kbps

Who knows, maybe they will offer it in the future. I'll call them and ask about it and see what happens.
