Hot Dang, that's FAST!

So, we just got Verizon FIOS installed at the house this week on Tuesday. This internet service, which is FTTP or fiber to the permises, is going to kill cable if the cable companies don’t imporve their service/price. The tier of service we subscribed to is for 15Mbit/sec. download and 2Mbit/sec. upload. The 15Mbit is more than twice what anyone around here offers and the 2Mbit is also more than twice. You may be saying to yourself, “they’re paying a bunch for this servie.” But, no…it is less a month than cable/DSL…

Now for the speed tests… The funny thing is that most of the speed tests out there cannot handle the bandwith from FIOS. testmy.net can though…. Here are the results:

:::.. Download Stats ..:::
Connection is:: 15422 Kbps about 15.4 Mbps (tested with 12160 kB)
Download Speed is:: 1883 kB/s

Test Time:: Sun Jun 05 2005 17:45:56 GMT-0500 (Central Daylight Time)
