    Just got the Gig upgrade here at the house. True to form: actual maximum does not match theoretical maximum. But still, it ain't bad. I'll keep it, until something better comes along. Woo hoo!

    Hi there, @EdTittel. I'd be woo hooing too. :)

    Do they guarantee 1GB?

    My ISP called me and telling me about a speed increase,
    This was done 4 years ago, now I get a call from them.

    @TonyK (but he's banned, so I'll answer in general).
    Q: Do they guaranteee 1 GB?
    A: Actually, the fine print says they deliver 940 download and 40 upload. They just call it "Gigabit!" But I had been paying for 300 Mbps and getting 350-360 before, so I didn't mind paying an additional $39 a month to get 840-940 when nobody else is around (the daytime) and 500-600 at night (when everybody else is around and using the Internet). Maybe that's why I work days?

    Around here the usual wording is "Up to". Time of high usage is also opposite, for me it's twice as fast late night than during work hours and specially afternoons.

    I have got a fiber optic cable to my modem and I am getting around 160 Mbps for both downloads and uploads when my connection is tested to my ISP. Of course I get nowhere near that when doing real transfers to distant locations. Now my ISP is offering an upgrade for about 50% more $$$ to 1Gbps and I wonder if I would get any improvement other than when I test my connection to my ISP?

    My local network is all 1Gbps it very nice to have.

    Nothing can arrive before it leaves so you could have 1Gbps bandwidth ans still have 1Mbps download from some lousy server.
