FYI all cable users need to quit using pussyfucking speedtests & use bandwidth tests that run a 50mb download.
nearly all cable companies in the US change their modem caps to 20-25-30mb profiles for the first 5-10-15-20meg of a download.

Verizon FiOS is awesome, I get 3.2 megabyte per second downloads from Usenet consistently, very low ping, and no slow downs.  And for only $45 a month!

I never got into usenet.. I don't see the point of paying for it. Is it worth it? I've heard different things from both sides of the argument.

I've been using UseNet for the past 4 years and I would defiantly say its worth the $15/month.  It's so nice to be able to download something at the highest possible speed your connection can handle without having to upload.  Once you go to usenet you'll never want to do P2P again.  Of course, there is some occasions where I must use P2P because certain software or some music isn't up on Usenet, but that's usually a rare occasion for me.

But the movies and games are always there? Does usenet get content later than P2P? I really don't care about how long downloads take except for when something new comes out and it takes 2 days to download it because the lack of seeds.

not particularly. its just fairly common knowledge that isn't apparantly common!

comcast did it last year & others. hell even charters gone & done it in the last few months nation wide. if charter's lame @#$% has done it, its hella old news.

basically. any cable line in the US is going to *try* to run 20mb/s down.
luckily, the data in torrents is segmented enough so that typically you continue to d/l at "full speed" the entire download.



i use to work tier 3 residential & presidential internet support for Verizon Online. cable co's have done this as nothing more than a way for people to point at all the small testing websites (including the ones the cable- co's run) and blame their equipment instead of the cable co's when certain problems arise. bandwidth is cheaper than call centers & local repairs are.

fyi... even lame @#$% decade old docis 1.0/1.1 modems can easily move 10mb/s+ when allowed too. despite what so many people claim!

Yeah that's not too surprising. Those companies care about making money not about providing the best service. All we can do as consumers is find the best bang for our buck. I know my connection isn't perfect but their isn't a whole lot I can do about it. Didn't mean any offense by my post.
