Re: how about a minimum speed
said by nanaki333:Bandwidth is becoming so cheap and so available thanks to Moore's Law, they really shouldn't have any trouble maintaining a measley 7 mb during peak hours.
of at least 3Mb during peak hours? most users of centurylink would rather have even 1.5Mb during 7:30pm than a max speed of 7Mb when there's nobody online at 3am. all the reviews i read on here, and family members that have centurylink, are lucky to get ISDN speeds.
Look at DOCSIS 3, which enables 160 mbps per node. If they have 125 people on a node, you could *guarantee* over 1 mbps per person without any oversubcription. In a few years they'll have 1 gbps DOCSIS 3. It's getting to the point that claims of congestion are laughably transparent lies.
