3hrs to go
Just started my download for it
About 12 hours to go
Cox Communications in Manchester CT. My plan is Cox Premier at 73.99 month. My normal download speeds at 6.2 - 6.5MBps on large files. 300GB a month cap which I usually go over (those damn 'rents for TV) but all they do is send me a e-mail telling me I went over and by how much- no extra charge or anything.
What would be really interesting would be this:
Bumps my cap to 400GB/month. Since I am already 20% faster than the service I am paying now, I could expect 160-175Mbps? Worth it? I donno.
EDIT 2014-10-14 Cox said they were going to double the internet speed for the same amount of money. They just bumped me up ( see post# 76) after I complained about them not doing it!

upgrade to Fiber is most likely out of the question well, not change
ISPs. I could always go to Bell but, I through them out 5 years ago
after being with them for 30.
I don't mind the upload as I rarely do. My download is what matters
and I get what I want.
Hit 16 MB/s the other day downloading from Origin.
Those old non-fiber packages are already phased out. You can always call Rogers to switch you to fiber with the same speed and they may still give you a lower monthly rate.
As for upload, just go to your router settings and check if QoS is enabled and make sure it is not set to 2Mbps.
I am using my own router. The built-in router on Rogers' gateway always drops my connection. So I set it to bridge mode to use my own router.
