    Just upgraded my internet speed and am now clocking in at 14.6mbps on downloads and 1.95mbps on uploads. Well, it may or may not be fast to you but it's a lot faster than before the "turbo" package. In fact, more than twice as fast :eek: :biggrin:

    What about you?

    From work this morning..

    292001204.

    I have an option to upgrade my home connection but I really don't find surfing from work any faster then home it's not worth the jump. However I would like a faster upload speed, I run a few servers form home and remote control a lot as well and the faster uploads would help.

    Francis, try testing from speedtest.net. Testing on TWC's local network is cheating. ;-)

  8. i have exactly the same as you

  9. i was at the apple store in SOHO/NYC (the original store) a while back

    they were running 50mbps up/20mbps down
    holy freakin' cow
     
  10. 1324/ 356 and very very happy to have this!!!!!
    I live at the very end of the phone line, 24,000 feet from the watchamacallit that boost the signal 15 miles to where it gets to the café.
    This was a surreptitious installation, made by a local phone tech and friend.
    Todays limits for DSL service, is 18,000 feet.
    The big plus is that there are very very few people sharing the service. The negative, is all the lightning problems one gets at the end of the line.

    Suhweet! I should try this from work as well to see what I get. The option for the turbo is only $10 extra/month and I am getting the first 30 days free. Maybe I'll keep it. Who knows.

    Well I'm glad you're happy with it, aside from the lightning issues.

    you guys are so lucky in the states, here I'm on regular DSL, not the light package or the extreme package, and my numbers are 742, 531. It's amazingly slow!

    Looks like my connection is pretty slow compared to some of the others here but it's not even close to as slow as the connection I had in China.
