Megabits is not the same as megabytes you peasant TC.

Try learning to read before you agree to pay for a service.


Wow harsh much? For the average consumer, the difference between MB and Mb isn't exactly clear cut. Companies purposely do this to make their speeds look better, and TC unfortunately fell into the trap. I used to think the same until several years ago. Try being helpful instead of sounding like an ass.

And I can sympathize with TC on getting gutted for a crappy connection. TWC is the ONLY provider I can choose from in my apartment and they're charging me $65/month for 10Mb download speeds. And even then the connection isn't always good. It cuts out sometimes and lags in games.


It's not harsh. He is a peasant of the wort kind.

When I read Megabit for the first time, I had no idea wtf it was either. So I looked it up.

What does TC do? He comes to complain on a message board having no idea what he is talking about.

He is a peasant to the core.


I have to agree with lionheart here.

Most of these "ISP's" lease their broadband from the major providers and then throttle the connection when they get close to that cap. Get yer milk directly from the cow I say. It's why I never had a problem with Comcast.


I'm getting conflicting opinions about Comcast and the other "big guys".

ISP quality must be wildly inconsistent across US metro areas.

It really is. The US has major infrastructure problems compared to other western nations.

I was on DSL for a couple of years. There are a few things that affects your connection. The quality of your in-house phone lines. If they are deteriorating, then, your speed will also deteriorate. Are you using filters for your phones and house alarm? Do you hear static over the phone?

Or maybe like many other people, he doesn't know that there is a difference between megabit and megabyte. Stop sounding like one of those tools who thinks everyone should know everything you do.

It really sucks, because I can't simply read a Comcast or AT&T review from someone in Seattle or Boston and expect the same experience in Chicago.

Depending on where you live, you might not be able to get a different ISP. One ISP tends to have a local monopoly on a large metro area and the like. It's their internet or no internet at all.
