After much humming and hawing, I signed up for broadband in Virginia with Comcast. I’m wary of them based on their filtering, and other subscribers talking about their dropping idle connections (sometimes, long-lived SSH connections are handy). But I wasn’t able to get much bandwidth from CenturyLink due to my location. So far, speedtest looks downright awesome. Here are the results from my new connection in Virginia.
Here’s what I get at the inlaws office where I’m working now. The connection at their home isn’t much better.:
So, we’ll see how much “neighbor contention” plays a factor in my available/usable bandwidth. But I’m sure looking forward to moving into the home in VA and sitting on the end of that fat pipe! 🙂
