People may not know the underlying details of why Rogers is substandard but the experience can certainly shift their view of it into a negative corner even with the light tier but as always it does come down to how you use the internet.

Aliant announced this morning that they have increased their 170/30 profile to 250/30

only changing the 170/30 and not the 70/30, I doubt this will make much of a difference besides stopping competitors advertising they have the "fastest" internet.

bumping the 70/30 would attract more customers then the 170/30 imo.

This was to blunt the Eastlink fastest internet advertising. My contact says they are debating whether to change the other tiers as well. They are going to start promoting their no caps advantage also.

They did it now to coincide with their Yarmouth press release about the release of FibreOP. http://www.digitaljournal.com/pr/644312

As others had predicted:
Quote:
FibreOP Internet offers the best Internet, including the fastest speeds with 250 Mbps download and 30 Mbps upload service. With these speeds and no data caps, even multiple simultaneous users can download and share large multimedia files faster than ever before.

70 down is good, but we need more speed. 3D Bluray images are HUGE!

Realistically for a normal home user on wifi, you can't go much faster then 70 without wifi becoming the bottleneck. Even single channel N doesn't go much higher then that in real world usage.

And that's if you can find a server that actually gives you 70mbps down. For how things are right now it's plenty fast.

Default Something has changed: External speedtest shows close to max

http://www.speedtest.net/result/1919883905.png

Normally only the Aliant speedtest showed max speeds, but now speedtest.net is showing near max speeds.

Also, I've had 3 IP changes this week. Compared to only 2 IPs since last May.

I also had my first IP change in, well, many many months earlier this week. I'm now using an IP address in a PPPoE DSL allocation. I sorta suspect they are reusing old DSL allocations for FibreOP as users migrate from DSL -> FibreOP. One must effectively use the allocations you have these days.

As for the speed test as Bell Aliant is becoming a very data oriented company and is heavily pushing FibreOP for everything it would not surprise me if they are establishing new peering partners for routing and also upgrading interconnects to handle more capacity. Both of these would help with speeds, to a certain extent. You will still encounter bottlenecks depending on the end to end routing.

habskilla... This one works well... others don't seem to have big enough upload test data to max out to 30Mbps...

Last time I used it I got 71.39 / 29.63
