15/2 upgrade

Recommended Posts

We've been talking about this for months, but now it's official: Optimum Online has announced they'll be upgrading all existing customers to 15Mbps/2Mbps (trials were at 20Mbps). They've also unveiled two additional tiers: Optimum Online "Boost" will offer speeds of 30Mbps/2Mbps for an additional $14.95 a month ($9.95 if you're a VoIP customer), and symmetrical 50Mbps service at an as yet unmentioned price-point. According to the company's press release, all of the new speeds should be available by the middle of 2006.

I have seen some speed test of the people with the adelphia 16/2 service and they were saying they were lucky to get 11mb down even at night, I personally think with that advertised speed on cable is not gonna work out to well. Too much traffic, hopfully it wont be too long before we get some test results for those special people who r testing it.

the testmy servers are run off of multiple gigabit connections I believe, but anyway. Yes those speeds are sick, T3/DS3 speeds for only about what? id say no more than $100/month. Yet, it is cable and a publically shared line so it will suffer from all of the things that plague it already. PLUS it is from OOL meaning the infamous phantom caps.....
