    Free Cox upgrade to a higher speed. Not too bad.

    This is the speedtest from one of my customers. The shot is using two Ubiquiti NanoBridges to shoot through about half a mile of trees and one house.

    what's the status on residential fiber down in the bangor area? i'm told oxford will light you up if you wanna pay (and live in the right place). is that gwi gigabit in old town/orono still a thing? i don't wanna leave my gigabit behind :(

    [​IMG]

    always a struggle with the download bandwidth out of state. i do hop on fairpoint/abovenet to leave maine though, so it's not too surprising i guess.

    No residential fiber yet, though oxford's business prices are not too bad (gigabit is ~$1,200/month vs TWC's $2,500/month), and they are looking to expand. The Canadian company that bought them just dumped a few million into them for the purpose of expanding infrastructure and building a new data center. I don't think they have any plans to offer residential connections (though I will keep trying, their fiber ends 1 mile away from my house in one direction, and 0.75mi in the other). The GWI Gigabit maine-street project seems to be dead. I have heard nothing since the announcement that they would be finished in 2012.

    My community wireless project is moving along nicely though. While not gigabit speeds, the new Ubiquiti AirMax AC products look interesting. We just lit up our first 65/65mbps customer, and that's limited by the fiber we have to that tower. We're hoping to get some Oxford fiber hooked up to our towers soon, with some AirFiber units connecting them (with a Rocket AC backhaul to my house for......testing and Quality Assurance purposes).

    Well, I haven't been home to test yet, but Verizon FiOS just emailed me this:

    [​IMG]

    So apparently I now have 150/150

    Will have to test later!

    Comcast is decent, but when you are surrounded by 3 different fiber providers on all sides its a kick to the nuts when this is the best you can get.

    25Mbps VDSL. Wish the upload was higher but I'm too far from the CO for anything better.

    Looks like Frontier, here in WA state, followed Verizons' FiOS footsteps and made the connection symmetrical (for the most part).

    It's better to give than to receive? Not according to Charter. :D I've been happy with the service, although the modems they are using (Arris) are supreme pieces of shit. After it initializes it locks you out of the configuration page.
