very nice

I was scared for a little bit that my server was messin' up because my scores sucked...

I am back to normal though... had to be a problem with the path my ISP was taking to my server because other people testing got normal scores... and I got normal scores elsewhere... scared the crap out of me, thought I might have to work ;-)

yeah your are is having speed problems right now. However, you will recieve the 3000/256 for free! That is the speed bump they are giving everyone since the transition from the ATT system to theirs has been so painful!

yes, hella website ca3le guy has...perfect for us speed freaks, & the speed test is the best around.

Regarding RCN & chapter 11, they are just reorganizing & eliminating some debt...amazing how this huge co. is broke--with 1 million residential links tossing 50-100$ a month into the hat :?

Come again?

I got upgraded from 1.5mb/s to over 4mb/s, when I should only have 3mb/s for free. I love RCN.
