Damn sometimes I wish I lived in the states. Seem everyone has crazy fast connections. I'd probably start a small colo business or something if I had access to that kind of bandwidth.
Good luck with that, its almost always banned in the TOS, unless you pay 5x - 10x for the same line, just relabeled "business class". Average speed in the US is 3mbit/500kbit.
Here's what $55/month gets me just outside the second largest city in Maine:
If I lived in the city, i'd be able to get a whopping 3mbit/1mbit connection for $45/month! Alternatively, I could have 100mbit/100mbit fiber run to my house for $2500/month. Thats what drives me crazy here, we have all the fiber run, we have the capacity to switch over, but no one wants to offer fiber to residential address.
it's coming, albeit very, very slowly. a quarter of houlton is lit up.. and we're in the sticks even compared to you guys. i pay $45/month for 100/100 since i have phone service with them (suck it, fairpoint).
it's not gonna be fairpoint (or any ILEC, for that matter..) that steps up to the plate is the thing. there's no way for them to cover costs of deployment and make shareholders happy. they can't even afford to get the entire state DSL access on our antiquated copper networks
Funny thing about all the fiber providers in Maine: they all ran their own backbone into the state, because Fairpoint's is crap.
There's also the Gig-U project around the University of Maine, but news on that died last year. No idea whats going on with it.
That is an understatement, it more then sucks. Depending on the game you are like a no name character fighting Neil from matrixI've heard from several friends with TW, that gaming with them sucks
Yup still sucks very badly , and makes a lot games unplayable!I'm just curious, with your posted speed, how is your gaming still sucking?
This speed must be at a college!
