I subscribe to CableOne for my broadband. I have the "Up to 50mps" package. The fastest download speed I have ever gotten is 2.8mbs, never more than this. Their basic package gives "up to 4mbs".
How do they come to this 50mbs number? I can "speedtest" and get better results (nowhere near 50mbs - 13mbs, 10mbs, and 12mbs), but in ACTUAL use, never more than 2.8mbs.
This has bugged me for a couple of years. I feel like I am paying waaaaaay to much for so little service. I could get 100kbs and still be in their advertised "up to 50mbs" speeds.
I live in a city of about 80,000 people, not on a farm or cabin in the middle of nowhere. Why not just say, "Up to 1000mbs?" It just as accurate.
How do they get their numbers? Anyone know? Or am I just another gullible consumer? lol
- AlPersonally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.
