    Default Failure of Time Warner Northeast Ohio

    I though you guys would like to see what "awesome" speeds I get from my Cable connection at my home, they were advertising that Powerboost service and they enacted it not too long ago. Let me put it this way, they have got so bad with the traffic shaping I am thinking about going back to DSL, which in my area is 3.0mbps/1.5mbps. Time Warner is digging their own grave!

    Before they got all crazy with the traffic shaping and such, I used to get some of the fastest speeds I have ever gotten. Now it seems not only "some" of my programs are affected, but now things like Steam and Warcraft and feeling the hurt. Its sad, sad.

    Just to snuff it out ahead of time, the m0n0wall is not the problem. I tested 4 routers (2 Linksys, (1 with 3rd Party FW, 1 Without) 1 Untangle, 1 m0n0wall) and got the same result.

    Does this graph show usage or bandwidth available?

    Ouch.

    I kept having trouble with my cable service and their bandwidth controls, so I switched back to DSL (5 down, 1 up) and haven't looked back. With cable I was supposed to be getting 7, but for some reason their system kept cutting my speed in half due to "excessive usage" or some junk like that, so I dumped them.

    Sometime soon Verizon FIOS is supposed to make it to my area (Boise, ID) and is going to kill the local competition, or cause a massive price/bandwidth war, I pray for this day.

    I am not at liberty to say what I was doing, but that is the amount of bandwidth used. The total available is base 15mbps / 768kbps. But with power boost I get 22mbps / 2mbps.

    The sad thing is we have Windstream communitcations in our area. They offer a package that is 12 / 3 I think but it is not in our area. We can only get the 3 / 1.5.

    What I was going to do is buy 5 or 6 DSL lines and the UT Wan Balancer and make a 15 / 8.5 if I get 5 and 18 / 9 if I get 6.

    You buy one DSL "package" then you buy these things called "greenstreaks" a.k.a naked DSL and they are $12.95/mo. and they match the same speed you get from the first one.

    Suprisingly it was not the piratebay, lets just say I pay money to keep prying eyes off my connection with SSL.

    And that it is alot faster than Bittorrent.
