Network Upgrade! HUZZAH!

Rate this Entry
My ISP (Shaw Cable in Vancouver BC) has been doing upgrades to their infrastructure lately and they've finally hit my area!!!

From 5MBITS to 15+MBITS!!!

I would trade a little download speed for a better upload though haha! :P Either way, I'm a happy camper since it was free as well!

update: WHOAH!!!

    Your upload is still kinda slow, and I think that's the important one for online gaming (at least for online fighters).

    But your download is INSANE.

    What the bloody...

    Shaw Extreme, or that other one? Nitro?

    *Sigh* I live in Calgary, with Telus Enhanced and getting low speeds. eg. Max real-time download I've seen was 350KB/s.


    Well, contract ends soon so that will be changed. ohyes.

    I just want them to get fiber where I'll be moving to, they've been laying the fiber underground so I hope service will be out soon.
