I live in the Philly area - and I pay extra for the "Gold Service" ... not
for the download speed but for the upload speed as I have two phone lines
with Vonage.

Woo- Hoo - here are my speeds today (after turningoff the cable modem and
router and waiting for about one minute before turning them back on)

REALITY CHECK!.....

2000 MB/month divided by 1.0258 MB/sec = 1949.7seconds
1949.7 seconds is 32 minutes 29 seconds

What binaries are you going to download the other 29 days, 23 hours, 27
minutes, 31 seconds next month after you've blazingly used up your measily
2GB/month Usenet coverage?

WOO WOO!....indeed.

Downloading at that speed from someplace else, how long do you guys think
it would be, in hours/min/secs, before Comcrap sends him the threatening
cutoff letter?

not everyone uses the service to download illegal programs, dirty pictures,
movies and anything else illegal they can get their greedy paws on.  If YOU
feel limited by the giganews 2 gig limit you are a sad excuse of mankind.
Not to mention a total retard. But then everyone with any morals at all that
reads this newsgroup already knows that.




Re: New Comcast Speeds


What a crock of shit Larry.
There are quite a few more things to do on the Internet besides Usenet.
In fact, in many circles Usenet is considered 'old school'.
Like you, I guess.

Web pages load lightning quick. Files load quickly, from everywhere
not just Usenet. Bottom line, speed enhances the Internet experience.

Kinda like your favorite mantra elsewhere. "Power is our friend"
Speed is also our friend. For everything, not just Usenet bone head.
Pull your head out of your ass.

You tend to always focus on one thing, mostly bogus, most of the time
and then hang on like an insane pit bull.

BTW, in order to get 'the letter', you have to really be pinning up your
connection. And, in doing so, you are also adversely effecting others.
The node you are on is shared with others. Sucking up bandwidth
24/7 for days is being a real prick to others on the same node.
The term is selfish asshole.

And.... it's a call now, not a letter.

Using any broadband internet service the way you do directly effects other
users service. You have proven beyond any shadow of doubt that you are a
selfish asshole and continue to every time you post your "views" you are
also an admitted thief, liar, flamer, troll and generally a morally corrupt
sub-human. I'd advise you to seek help but I honestly believe you to be
beyond help.

Were you born an ASSHOLE or did you just decide to be an outspoken out of
line shit head?  If you prefer to be seen as a fucking thief and sub-human
that is your choice. Your moral standard or lack of same will eventually
catch up with you and your kind. People like me will be laughing our rear
ends off at your expense on that day.

Let's hope we never meet cause I don't want to go to jail for throttling you
pussy.
If you don't use broadband then go back to dialup idiot. In case you haven't
noticed
there are dozens of sites to buy music legally, video feeds are all over the
place and avid
gamers download monstrous demos nowadays.

And perverted lying, cheating thieves like you get your pirateware and
perversion videos and pictures off of Usenet. The one place not designed or
intended for distribution of stolen property and or music, videos and
pictures. People who download legal music, videos and gaming software do not
do so from alt.binaries.for thieves or alt.binaries.sicksobs.

Please do come to Tacoma and try to throttle me you sick son of a bitch.
That will give me the legal right to take your ass out of life's game
permanently, thus making the internet a better place for those remaining.
BTW: I'm a male so the only "pussy" I have are you and your buddies in these
newsgroups. That isn't anything I'd put my penis in either, even if you guys
do prefer that sort of action.

Re: New Comcast Speeds


I have yet to EVER use my 2 GB Usenet limit.  There is more to the internet
than Usenet, and there is more to life than the internet!!

I work from home quite often - accessing / syncing my laptop e-mail with
work, access to work network via VPN .. so the download and upload speeds
are key for me.   As I mentioned I have 2 phone lines with Vonage as well.

Get a grip...get a life !!

Re: New Comcast Speeds


I'm still getting about the same speeds as usual. I don't think my area has
been upgraded yet. This is what I get:

Re: New Comcast Speeds

Assuming you were in the 4 Mbit tier before, I'd say that your
measured download speed of >4 Mbps (4.3 Mbps) may indicate
that your area HAS been upgraded, but that the speed test
result just isn't a very good indicator of the maximum
throughput you could achieve.  Pulling down a big file
from an FTP server close to you on the network and hanging
off a pipe of reasonable size is really a better measure
than the java-based speed tests, in my experience.  The
15 and 90 MB (the latter is misnamed onehundredmeg.exe)
test files avalable at ftp://chftp01.ne.ipsvc.net/pub/test/
have worked well for those of us in the NE region for years,
but unfortunately the server may not be accessible to users
outside of the NE region.  You can all do the math, I'm
sure, but for the sake of having a quick reference:

file                 time to download  download speed
-----------------------------------------------------
fifteenmegfile.exe        30 sec           4 Mbps
fifteenmegfile.exe        20 sec           6 Mbps
fifteenmegfile.exe        15 sec           8 Mbps
onehundredmeg.exe        180 sec           4 Mbps
onehundredmeg.exe        120 sec           6 Mbps
onehundredmeg.exe         90 sec           8 Mbps
