  1. Imagine if the Internet regressed back to 24.4, 33.6, or  56K for 24 hours?  Will never happen, but made the start up sound on meh Windows to a 56K modem connecting. The memories. :-)

      Frontier's just as bad. 4 DSLAMs in a city of 36k and 45 Mbit/s in backhaul to each one of them, haven't been upgraded since Verizon's wireline glory days. Don't have to worry much about that since Comcast quietly launched gigabit DOCSIS here :D

      I pretty much have a choice between Clink and Comcast. Clink is 1.5Mbs and limited because I am right at 5 1/2 Kilometers from the C/O. Had to have Clink set my speed at the C/O to about 850kbs,  stopping the modem from retraining every 45 minutes.

       

      Which really sucked on anything streaming or needing longer than 45 minutes to download. Also, didn't like the fact I had to tell the techs exactly what to do, "trust me, reseting my modem will not work. Let's set my link down until it needs stops retraining the modem, I am too far for 1.5Mbs.".

      Have you tried service with Comcast? Out here they have a cable node hanging off a pole damn never every other block, so you're always close to the point where copper connections get muxed onto the fiber network. Internet is unironically great, customer service not so much
