Ramblings from another nerd on the grid

Symmetrical 15meg speeds rock

At lunch time, I called Verizon to bump my FIOS data plan speeds up a notch.  I left my download speed alone (15meg) but had them change the upload speed from 2meg to 15meg.  Yep, I have a 15meg connection each direction now.  I’m on the month-to-month plan for $72 USD.  They have cheaper and faster plans on the East coast, but I’ll take it.

Here’s a result from some testing this afternoon (the GMT on the pic is wrong).  Yes, they re-provisioned my connection about two hours after I called.  Nice!

1513 1514

This is going to really improve my ability to upload screencasts and video from my home to the content delivery networks we are testing.  My wife is really going to like the improvement in speed for web publishing as well.  Shhhh.  Don’t tell her.  Let’s see if she notices.

  • Ok Keith, this makes it official.  You suck!!! :-p  I'm paying more than that and getting much less.  That's ok.  I think I'm getting karma points somewhere. :)

  • Yea, I know.  I'll suck more when I have the 20/20 or 30/30 plan.  Those are coming this year, or so I hear.

  • 15/15 is also ideal for SlingBox. :)

  • And Xbox Live p0wnage.  :)

  • I weep.  Just ran a speedtest and got 1273/302.  sigh...
