Cox Cable in Arizona

down unlimited up 256 Kbps

This is Cox's standard internet package from I know.

It's not really unlimited, but when I pulled my cable modem config the QoS had the downstream rate set at max (10Mbps). I don't know what it really is set at anymore, as I'm not allowed to pull the cable modem config anymore (bastards).

I've never had a problem with downloading to much stuff at once, but most download servers have bandwidth caps per connection nowdays. I can never seem to get more than 300KB/s from a server anymore. Although I can have 3 or 4 300KB/s downloads open with no problem.

256/128 cable for about $30 US$ per month, with 5gb traffic allowance, with national traffic being charged at 1/10th the rate (ie 50gb of nat traffic).
You should all count yourself lucky.

[email protected] cable

Roof 1.5mb down 128k up.

I usually get alot less both sides.

50 dollars.

but with dowload mangers(super leach programs) i've seen all 1.5, but usually get around 300k.

The up seems negotiable to some areas though getting around 256k.

Pipex ADSL 512/256 at £20 a month. Dunno how much that is in euros..about 30 dollars though. I think I can get 1024\512 but it's £35 and I for that I can wait for my downloads I think.

Didn't some Aussie ISP limit their ADSL users to 3gb a month? Broadband + Bandwidth limit = oxymoron. NTL really screwed themselves up in england by making a 1gb a day limit.

I have Comcast cable.. about 1.1mbit down and 256k up.


on a side note, Full Duplex, Asymetric do not mean in any way that your upload will affect your speed. It is not something that only DSL lines have.

When you upload something to someone and try to download at the same time, the "acks" for your download are slower to get thru your line, slowing down your transfer greatly. QoS can fix this, AFAIK. I am in no way a QoS expert, but if acks have priority, I think your downloads will go very well even if you upload.

Again, I could be full of sh*t.

QoS simply means that you limit certain traffic, so that other kind traffic can pass through faster.

This is correct, even though TCP should widen its window afaik to compensate for this. And yes QoS can defintiely help here, it simply lets those "small" ACKs go to the front of the sendqueue.

http://www.speedguide.net says it can help to tweak TCP settings (send/receive window sizes) if you have extremely high latency, this can also possibly help.

College (if ONLY I could get this at home):
on-campus - 1000Mbit multi-mode fiber Ethernet
full-duplex, no bandwidth caps
campus uplink - OC-12, 10000 nodes absolute MAX
P2P traffic is capped extremely low,
but other than that no restrictions
price: $200/semester ~ $50/month

Home:
Cox Cable, no download cap, 128Kbit/upload
$45/month

I'm jealous of my family in the mid-west. Since they live in a small town, the local ISP will gladly run FIBER straight to your house, for free, yes free..... the ISP actually has to ask permission. The consumers get stiffed on the potential of the connection (I think the ISP's cap is 768k-down/128k-up).

I was looking at the spec of DSL and DL/UL ranges from 6-8mbit/768-1mbit but the cap was set to distance themselve from T1 and T3 so they can set prices! god, corporate greed is sick and very shady business practice. :( technology is already here but they just want more $$$ for faster speed or pay less and get crappy 768k/128k, pay a little more 1.5mbit/256, pay alot more for the next faster package 6mbit/384k for 159.95 a month.

We really do get screwed big time here in the UK.

for a shitty 600k service on NTL I pay £24.99 / month and for that I get at best a variable service of Up to 600k download and anything upto 360k upload but it averages at around 180-240k and downloading can be just as variable. Given that IM on a cable modem and the NTL office for the region I live in is actually 10 Mins walk down the road, I find it annoying that I have had to wait upto 30 second for the homepage to load.

Other shit we have to live with is simply this, NTL provide you with 50Mb of web space to upload your website to, you can not run boards or other services that most other ISPs provide as part of the package (including being able to Telnet or having them add a C-Name record to their DNS servers), running anything server wise is a no no and results in service termiation until you phone in to complain to put your service back on.

In short, if we were to get the same deals as some ISPs offer elsewhere in the WWW we would be paying no more than a £10 for 600k / Month but it aint, we get stuffed for just under 25 notes.

So as a result of my ISP i have to rely on all sorts of free services as the ISP I have are not very generous.

Dont get me started on PC components, thats an even bigger "Bend-me-ova-n-give-me-one" price hike.

My net buddy just bought a swanky new 3 gigahertz bare bone system with a TFT for the cost of what we get a new Harddisk and Memory upgrade.

Total piss take on the cost of components....
