FIOS: trying to understand it and whether I should upgrade
Posted on 2006-10-19
I have comcast cable. I'm thinking of getting Verizon FIOS.
My friend says it's about 3 times faster.
However, this morning I timed my
downloads at 100kB/s
and uploads between 36kB/s and 150kB/s or something.
(I wasn't paying attention to whether the screen said kb or Kb. (I use Linux)
my flyer from Verizon says FIOS can be as fast as 15Mbps.
how fast can I expect it to be realistically? and does it slow down as more people get on?
how is it different from T-1 in terms of the technology.
