    Hi All,

    Just had Time Warner cable modem installed in my house. It's their $29.99/month 10Mbps plan

    Down 25.5 to 26.7 Mbps

    Up 0.89 to 0.97

    Thanks

    If it's a 10 Mb/s plan then you shouldn't be getting anywhere near that fast! :eek:

    I pay $60/month for Comcast 25Mbps download 4Mbps upload speeds service.
    When I signed up they gave me 6 months for half price $30/month.

    How is it possible to get faster results than what your service is supposed to give you?

    Here is a copy of a test I just ran. The Download speeds vary by +/- 3 or 4 but the upload speed is almost always the same.

    So I guess this is not bad??

    It is possible to get "faster" because your service is probably 10MB (note the capitalization for bytes) which is equal to 80Mbps (lowercase bits)

    1MB = 8Mb

    so technically you are getting duped, you should be getting more like 40-50Mbps realistically though your service claims 80Mbps

    so 24Mbps is closer to 3MB which isn't actually all that great.

    I'm guessing you're paying $99.99 a month for that right ?

    $29.99/mo just for the internet portion, cable TV is like $60ish.

    Your question was for Eddyisgreat, but Lerxst answered anyway. Lerxst doesn't have the same service as Eddyisgreat, so you're not being overcharged (any more than Comcast usually does!)

    $200. Business Class. May upgrade to the $400 dollar 100/10 plan (rated for 50/10 now).

    OP your speeds look correct.
