I take as much as I can get, for a reasonable price.

The time I need it the most is probably when streaming three streams at the same time. 4K is in the works, if not already here.

You've got to be looking at a LOT of porn on 5-6 devices simultaneously to need more than that.

Depends what you're paying for. If you're paying for consumer level 15 Mbps, then that's great. If you're paying for 50 Mbps...you may want to have a "discussion" with your provider...

Instead of a screen shot, hit the "share" link.  The image link they give you has the grade.

16 mbps is probably plenty.  And you probably do as much video uploading/downloading as anybody.  Does it seem adequate to you?

Yeah, seriously… Guy's connection is faster than 55% of the U.S. It's fine. AOL still makes most (millions) of its money from dial-up, believe it or not… [URL=http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2014/08/07/aol-still-makes-most-of-its-money-off-millions-of-dial-up-subscribers/]http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2014/08/07/aol-still-makes-most-of-its-money-off-millions-of-dial-up-subscribers/[/URL] [URL=http://gizmodo.com/5982853/aol-earns-most-of-its-money-from-subscribers]http://gizmodo.com/5982853/aol-earns-most-of-its-money-from-subscribers[/URL]

I wonder what percentage of that are people who forgot they had an AOL account.

Thanks.  Now for the $64,000 question.  Why is it faster to download than to upload?  It doesn't seem to make sense that data moving through the system moves faster one way than another.

Please use little, non-geeky words......


Think of it this way, most people only use the web to "search, download music / movies, stream music / video "

These require fast downstream service from the service provider.

Most users do not upload many files to the internet, other than you tube nuts/regular users.

Granted many people do upload and have many various interests, but they are generally individuals who are either professional or hobbyist.

They know the proper methods to compress the files and usually have a regular need for the faster service's.

The cost for these service's hasn't been spent in the US by the major companies for the required infrastructure (fiber optics mainly)

It probably will be 5 or more years before the US has the capability to provide faster speeds.

Most likely wireless speeds will be the new generation for users, via phone service providers.

Cables will be a thing of the past.

Did you just say 2 mb/s up is slow and will take awhile to upload photos???

Also, "reasonable for internet use?" I think you have a very skewed idea of what is necessary for standard internet use.... a 15 mbs / 1.5 mbs connection is pretty much more than adequate for most home users.

You don't know from slow unless you were around during dial up days hah


Have you ever had a friend send you 50 photos of their vaca using their new digital camera, which still set at factory settings for hi-rest quality?

Yes, todays service's are adequate, but not up to speed with other countries.

It's not really a necessity for standard user's, but providers compete for consumers business and must raise the bar to compete.

Yes I suffered through the "dial-up" era.... :doh:

I get that.  My question is why will data, presumably moving through the same system, move faster one way (downloading) than the other (uploading)?

Traditionally it had something to do with the PA (power amplifier) in your modem being less powerful than the one in the substation by the fiber optic cable. Symmetric lines like T1/2/3 and have pretty bulky modems. Higher bit rates mean more power output. For the receive side more sensitive and higher bandwidth receivers don't require large amplifiers.

In this day in age, I wonder if it's just artificial (they can charge more)? We can get a PA from Hittite pretty cheap: http://www.hittite.com/press_releases/index.html/view/446/print

EDIT: 25W is pretty expensive.

Because of the infrastructure which has been installed to provide the service to the millions of customers as new communities are developed further away

from metropolitan areas is very costly.

When the cables and fiber lines and equipment were installed, their interests were to provide users with only quick DL capability.

The cable companies did not find it necessary to spend additional costs for additional cables / equipment for upload service's.

If my friend ever sent me 50 pictures of their vacation I'd tell them where they can put those pictures after I print them out on extra heavy stock paper. I don't know anyone that sends that many pictures to others.

    • I stand just far enough away from the net that I’m not going to hit the frame in the follow through with the club. The ball shouldn’t ricochet back towards you with that net. The bigger problem is the wind likes to knock it down.
    • I will never stand within six feet of the net. Took a hard ricochet standing too close few years ago. Ball hit me on the nose bridge squarely making me pass out for a minute. Just saying...
    • Fortunately my wife doesn't care how much I golf. We are both in our mid 30s.  She doesn't play but loves tagging along and driving the cart.  Shes there to drink a few cocktails, look for balls in the woods with a retriever and make fun of my game.  We even went on a cruise to Bermuda this summer and let me play at Port Royal while she tagged along as well.    Im off weekends and she works 95% of weekends so those are wide open for me
    • Keep swinging in a simulator in the winter to stay consistent. That's a big if being I plow snow for the town and can be called into work at any second My last round last week outside, back 9 hit 5 of 9 GIR.   Amazing how much smoother a swing is when you're constantly playing.   Im still a 18ish handicap, short game betrays me from time to time.  Wish there was a better way in winter to improve the short game.  I have an indoor putting mat and chipping net with soft balls, works good for ball striking I guess
    • Right now I have a set of One Length Cobra F8s.   I really thought about getting the new Cobra LTDx One Lengths.   The PW of the F8 is 44*.   However the LTDx is 41.5*.   The 5i of the F8 is 22.5*.  The LTDx is 20.5*.    My question is, there will be a bigger gap between a new PW and my standard length 49* AW (yea a 44 to 49 is a solid gap as well but its pretty well gapped yardage wise).   And my current 4h will basically be the same loft as a new 5i.   Will it be a waste of time getting new irons without buying a complete new set of wedges.  Or is technology so far advanced in the shafts that the lofts don't mean as much comparing new and old irons.
