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 ;-)

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 :?

yeah your are is having speed problems right now. However' date=' 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![/quote']

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.
