In some games the prize is people get to kill you a lot while you are waiting. :lol:

But he can use the slow speed as an excuse for not updating the site now.

So Cablevision upgraded my connection from 50/15 Mb/s Down/Up to 100/35. Results above. This cost me $0 extra per month.

This should be true for every Optimum customer who was paying for Boost Plus internet. The other tiers received an upgrade as well. I am blown away by the new speed ... this is competitive with (better than?) FiOS. :shock:

Well they call it "Optimum", but that's the Cablevision brand. They are alive and well in the NYC area anyway.

Pfft, your pitiful bandwidth makes me laugh!

Then again, working at an ISP with a direct 10 gbps straight into Level3 might possibly be skewing my perspective here....

So apparently my download speed has gone down since 2011, but my upload has gone up.... (they told my wife they were going to boost our speed, etc etc when she called to cancel)

I need to have a talk with them I think :evil:
