    Contacted Adelphia today regarding some issues. Turns out that the community has about 409 Powerlink users, which is connected to about 13,000 users in the region.

    I use my connection primarily for my website but will also be using it for some gaming come this August/September. (EvercrackII)

    I'm not sure it would be even possible but I work for XO Communications based out of Reston, VA and wonder if we could all pitch in for something with a little more go that we could share....

    Kick around the idea, what are everyone’s thoughts on purchasing something. Possible? Worth it?

    Thanks,

    Steven

    I had thought about getting a T1 (or fractional) here but couldn't get enough interest. I'm more than willing to pay for real broadband. Right now I'm paying for both Adelphia and iDSL because I still have a need for a real pipe with no limitations on what I can do with it.

    I'd like to take a poll on who thinks Adelphia may bandwidth throttle users in this area. Seems that some Adelphia users experience more than 2MB/s in areas, just wondering because that would be a cost effective method for Adelphia to keep costs down on upgrading network while maintaining customer growth. Think about it... 100 people downloading at 2+MB or 200 paying customers downloading at 1+MB on the same network......

    With Adelphia it is not only possible but likely! I continue my boycott!

    I agree, they must have gotten wind of or have been receiving complaints on the low bandwidth. (Even thought they don’t guarantee over 600K) I know I've written several complaints to Adelphia regarding this and told them that I would share bandwidth-throttling theory with as much customer base as possible. Maybe it's just a fluke but I'll enjoy the better service while it lasts......

    :::.. Download Stats ..:::

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but this is rediculous. Great to see I'm really getting my money's worth:

    Last Result:
    Download Speed: 586 kbps (73.3 KB/sec transfer rate)
    Upload Speed: 433 kbps (54.1 KB/sec transfer rate)

    When are these guys (and Comcast) going to get their act together?
