For some reason I'm not capped! But Fios is new to my area. Ive been waiting all year for them to be done setting up my town. Finally I'm do to have it installed and ready on July 19. I noticed a verizon truck working in my area on the lines and asked about fios and when it would be ready and he said I could order it now. Ive been going to verizon.com trying to order it but the site kept saying it wasn't available. So anyways I'm excited about getting Fios and figured I would share it with you guys. I'm getting the first month free so the package I chose was the 30/5 then I'll downgrade after the fist month. Ill post them results as soon as I get the service on Tuesday. CANT WAIT!!!!

Welcome to the site Chais82.

While your cable looks damn good, FIOS will be blazing.

Don't forget to post scores. Enjoy your new speeds!

Thank you! and you can be sure to see my stats as soon as im set up.

Also is there anyone else in RI getting the service or has it? I know N. Kingstown and Warwick are the two towns getting it. If so whats ur scores using the speed test here?

Cox upgraded their systems to 5Mbps/2Mbps Preferred Service and 15Mbps/2Mbps for Premier Services, in some areas were FIOS is being offered.

Well as far as I knew a cable modem couldn't download no faster than 1 MB/s so therefor 15 mbps (almost 2 MB/s) would be imposable for cox to offer. Also I pay for the premier package and they still only advertise 5 mbps down and 768 kbps up. But you seen my speeds though. This happen to a friend of mine who lives in another state and told me that it lasted for him about a month. So I still believe I'm just not being capped.

No i didnt reboot Ill do that now. while I do that could you answer this for me, Do you think Cox just cant give me the 15 cause of all the internet use in my neighborhood? Also seeing Cox cable and Verizon fios is the same speeds what would be better cable or fios? Im guessing fios seeing im not getting the 15 but only 8.5 to 9 late at night.

Also thank you for your help!!!!!

Some computers just need to be tweaked. Because when I had the 5Mbps/768kbps connection I would always do a speed test and get 3Mbps download but when I tweaked it I was getting 5.5Mbps download. :)

No difference. So fios isnt any better than cable? Im thinking the interenet traffic in my area just wont allow me to get the 15 megs so maybe fios will be better. but im wondering if fios is a better connsction to the internet than cable or dsl?

FIOS is better.No shared connection, low latecy, and its Fiber Optics going throught your house. :)

It looks like your connection was better without the tweaks.

I figured that it would be better. So im glad im doing the switch. But I orderd fios before i relized Cox did the upgrade but obviousely the way cable shares the connection fiber is better. Your tweeaks did help though i see a difference on certain sites now so ill do a test tonight and poost my results then. Once again thank you so much for your help!
