    Default What's your internet bandwidth?

    I just upgraded my internet with AT&T U-verse to their "Max Plus" ... whatever that is. They give a credit for 6months for the difference between the new plan and your old plan, so it won't cost me any more until July/August of this year.

    Crappy DSL. Download 2.64Mbps/Upload 0.54Mbps/ Ping 77ms Live out in the boonies so DSL is the only option as broadband cable is not out this far "yet". At least it's better than dial-up. I am almost at the furthest point out for loop length @15,000 feet

    Thanks, I got 19.5 down and 18.29 up. Far cry from advertised, I'm sure it's system load dependent, probably faster in the middle of the night.

    Your "pipe" might be split for all of your devices, tv, phone, alarm system ... whatever you've got running right now.

    I have two computers, a NAS, IP printer, Smart TV, Roku 2 XS, xbox360 and at least 4 mobile devices hooked up at any one time.

    Good point, when I ran that test 2 tv's were on and wife was using phone (still on and she is still using phone, haha). And, I just notice the PVR light is on, so she is recording at least one other channel.

    Seems that since so many people (like me) no longer have a pay tv service (except Netflix) and just watch TV / video programing over the Web ... That they have increased to price for Internet service to help their profit out.
