    Yeah, there's plenty of competition for our money here in SoCal..... incidentally, this is Earthlink Cable, provided by Time Warner (Roadrunner in other words)

    Sounds like Time Warner is feeling the pressure of competition. Their basic service used to be 2000/384. Then I heard they went to 3000/384 and now it looks like you got 3000/512. All for the same money I assume. Who can complain about free speed upgrades? Well you can't really use 'free' and 'Time Warner' in the same sentence. As I recall their prices weren't all that great and I know they have gone up further since I left their service area Jan 2004.

    And here I am with some obscure small time cable company who offers 3000/1000 for $35 a month. I've already forgotten about that $1200 I dropped for that 550 foot underground cable run I have a friend who always tells me Time Warner is always trying to buy out my cable company and expand their service area. I hope they never do!!

    Re: FF Member connection speeds.

    Yeah, Len - that's what I've had in the last 18months-2 years since I switched from Earthlink DSL to Earthinlink cable. Started 2000/384, then 3000/384 and now it seems to be 3000/512 No price increases for me so far either. $42/mth. Still not cheap though

    Well you'll feel better when I tell you that I actually $50 a month. The extra $15 is for their 'VPN Service' without which I can't connect to work over VPN. Apparently they have those ports closed and only open them if you pay. When I had Road Runner, VPN worked out of the box with no extra charges.

    Re: FF Member connection speeds.

    I feel so much better now - thanks Len.... I use VPN all the time for work, so I'd be stuffed if they blocked it.

    Re: FF Member connection speeds.

    so did roadrunner up there service again? it used to be 3000/384. thats who i use at home. its even faster than my colleges network, which is all screwed up still.
    wow just found this. http://www.rr.com/rdrun/ 5 meg download instead of 3 starting this month for most of us. didn't see anything about upload, but surely it was upped as well? either way still sweet.

    Re: FF Member connection speeds.

    AFAIK, what i have is equivalent to RR. but i haven't (yet?) noticed an increase in DL speed, only upload. I'll let you know if I hear / notice anything else.

    Re: FF Member connection speeds.

    Can we get a mod in here to fix up post #1? I kinda doubt that no-show Jerky is going to do it

    Btw, I gotta run more speed tests to beat Hockeydude's 969 upload. I know I've hit the 970's before

    Re: FF Member connection speeds.

    I brought this thread back to life in post #38 (middle of page 3). Should be up to date prior to that.
