    I just got it installed and checked my throughput at an independent site
    bandwidth.com/speedtest

    I got:
    1.6 MBs dowload
    200.1 kbs upload

    This is amazing - i used to download big files and it would take hours....now it's seconds.

    There are downsides.... I have been on cable since OMG its been like 7 years..(roughly guestimated)... As the people in your area are added on to the network... it will have growing pains... SLOW speeds like dial ups...dropped connections.... I can tell ya as a gamer... being in lead then getting dropped on a 50 dollar a month connetion WILL piss you off...

    Would I go back.... He!! no.
