Based on my location i have always go very close to maximum speeds too.
It's a ruling....
A ruling made by the FCC on a law from 1934...
And the citizens of the US still have not read the 'ruling's 323 pages.
A ruling made, even though there are obviously a lot of people who either didn't want this ruling or at least wanted to understand what it said and how it could affect the people, who theoretically are the ones, who the FCC work for.
Where is the 323 page you are talking about? I read another article(Sorry, no link) saying the FCC ruling is only 8 pages long not 323 pages.
Personally dsl is as fast as u-verse which is still dsl with a different modem but allot more expensive,
If at&t had it's way I'd be paying 180.u.s a month instead of 102.60 for t.v. and internet.
Then you get into the cell silliness which a meager 200mb was like 80.us
I can't even talk to Comcast but they are about the same 180.00.
We can speculate 'til the cows come home but no one will really know what is going to come out of this until either we see that elusive document (and maybe not even then) or something actually happens. The ISPs are going to raise a ruction through the courts so the legality of the FCC's actions will be tested.
