There you have it, my isp has finally started to uncap our speeds. My web surfing has finally re-claimed the upper 200K mark. However, one of my neighbours must be some sort of surfing freak, as my speeds dip dramatically during “normal” surfing hours, however friends who are on the same service do not have the same issues.
This is not to say that the service is without issues, but it has improved since we stopped using @home as our only routing/traffic partner. One neat feature is the transparent web cache, the only reason I noticed it was my wifes computer wasn;t showing her actual IP on connections to this web server. We are not on the same segment.”
