What we now have are faster client applications (e.g., Firefox), faster
modems and routers, and faster broadband speeds but servers that cannot
deliver Internet packets fast enough to provide any appreciable overall
improvement in speed.
Oh, they can. But on the one hand, the providers aren't providing the
fiber optic (fiber optic) required; and on the other hand, they have
permission to throttle speeds. Why innovate and improve if you don't
have to? That just wastes shareholders' dollars.
Enjoy life while you still can,
Just checking my provider's speed (Comcast) at a little over 200Mbps. I
have their highest speed plan which can go to 1000 but have never
clocked much above 500. There is a fiber optic going to the bottom of
my development but then split into cable and I assume I will never see
max unless everyone else using it is off line. No big deal to me as all
my needs are satisfied at current speeds. I also have a FIOS terminal
in my house and was using for land line only but terminated that last
month when I lost consulting client that paid for it. I could switch to
all FIOS but bottom line would probably be the same with speeds and cost
and I hear they are harder to deal with and increase costs even if you
have a contract for 2 years.
