    Yeah. Same here. Every speed upgrade requires a gateway (modem/router device) upgrade. My ISP delivered the new gateway to my door. We just made a switch. The guy gave me the new one and I gave him the old one.

    I actually asked them to disable the router on the gateway because I want to use my own router. That way I don't have to do any setup. Just plug and play. That's it.

    But how does it work there? Do you have a cap for downloads? If so, how many GBs?

    My old package is only 80GB/month. Now it's upgraded to 320GB which I think is too much for what I need. But 80GB is not enough sometimes.

    Try living with 5 Gbs. The down side to living in the "sticks".

    What type of speed to you get?

    The speed for my ISP is very slowly, also in the 'sticks', but beginning of last year they removed all caps, so although it is still slow, I can download as much as I want (usually set things downloading overnight)

    That's the same marketing strategy some mobile carriers use. They are very aggressive in offering unlimited data use, unlimited calls and unlimited text. That's because they have limited coverage and poor signals. Even inside your office cubicle you cant get a signal which keeps your usage on a lower side.

    It depends on how you use your bandwidth. My wife watches a lot of on-demand tv programs on her iPad. My toddler likes watching youtube. And I keep downloading Linux distros and updates. A 4GB file takes 15 mins to an hour to download depending on the download server.
