  1. An awful lot of landlords suck. Paying more for less ain’t always a healthy solution.

    I have no beef with smaller; but, it still must be a choice derived from personal choice – not just reacting to arbitrary orders. Perhaps your ISP may be able to provide a map of alternative locations. Might be worth considering.

    1. Yeah well, this is one of those things which makes me wonder about landlords. I like the building I live in – safe, well built and great support team. Plus the bandwidth. i am not moving for at least two more years.

  2. Hey, we need to talk about getting you a new router if that’s your typical Wi-Fi speed above. πŸ˜‰ My pokey FiOS (advertised as 75 down/35 up) actually gives me 80 Mbps down over Wi-Fi and 40 up on my iPhone 5. I bought an Asus 802.11 a/c router to take full advantage of my home broadband.

  3. Its interesting – I recently committed to keep living in the flat where I’ve been for 7 years in Toronto (longest I’ve lived anywhere – so perhaps that stasis is its own reason for continuation) because I just upgraded my connection to a 10Mbps upstream (which sadly seems to be the fastest here in Toronto) and thus am guaranteed the ability to add new titles to the http://getfilmi.com catalog from home as I license them. Funny that bandwidth has become such important factor in assessing the value of lifestyle – it doesn’t seem that long ago when I was happily dialing up to 9600bps over copper wire in Nairobi.

  4. Congrats on your new place! If you ever change your mind in the future and would like to switch to Comcast, I am here to help.

  5. Looks to me like Webpass is ripping you off if that Speedtest picture is from your own connection. You’d get faster downloads from the Comcast 50 Mbps than what you’re seeing, unless you ran that test on an Android phone with a lame CPU. You should complain to the FCC about the fact that you’re not getting the speed you paid for.

    1. On Ethernet it is 195 Mbps — so no WebPass isn’t ripping me off πŸ™‚ the wifi routers need some upgrading in near future Richard. I am pretty sure I get better connectivity with WebPass than with Comcast when I paid $80 a month for their 50 Mbps connection.
