Verizon Fios in Northern, VA.  Very happy with the service here. I got same results as @dsc123 above pretty much. Same 35/35 on the phone. No surprise, since we're the same service in the same area. Good to see it's consistent. Hey, Dan, hope all is going well on that side of the Potomac. I haven't made it up that way for any golf, but the Timbers at Troy outing was fun. I'm still inspired to take Aimpoint at some point, based on how well you were reading the breaks that day.

I have had Time-Warner Cable Internet for a long time. Long enough that they've been "Spectrum" for a number of years, and I'm on a grandfathered plan, paying between $100 and $200/month for Internet + VOIP (which runs over our regular phone lines).

To be honest, I was getting about 70 Mbps down and 5 Mbps up.

Well, for about $30/month less, I'm now getting a bit more… 😉

Yay!

Now, that's from my wired eero. On my computer I'm getting much higher speeds as well:

What kinds of Internet speeds are you getting?

slow by comparison here in the land of perpetual cloudiness:  We are paying about $75 for internet.   They raised the price when we dropped TV

My Mac on Spectrum. I didn't test my iPhone because I don't use it for up or downloads.

Do you have anything connected to the eero outside of your home? If so how is the access? I have a workshop I'm struggling to get WiFi to and looking for first hand experience.

Not sure what you mean by "outside of your home." No, everything is inside my home, though my garage door openers are on WiFi, too, and I can get WiFi out to my street as I drive away from my house, too. For a hundred yards or so.

I ditched horrendously overpriced, 12-year-old Comcast hardware and speed a couple months ago for AT&T fiber, which is cheaper and faster (company may be equally shitty as Comcast).

Google wifi mesh network.

Speed at gateway where fiber comes  into the house.

My speeds are around 50mbps now with AT&T, we are building a new house and will have Spectrum there and I will be able to choose from 500mbps or 1gbps speeds. 

I will most likely go with the 500mbps because I am running CAT6 ethernet runs to all of the TV/game console locations, the home office, 2 in ceiling access points, and 2 external locations for POE cameras. 50mbps with pretty much everything on wifi now is adequate for most things I do outside of downloading a new video game or something, so I think 500mbps with most things being hardwired should be plenty fast enough for now.

I will most likely go with the Unifi line from Ubiquiti but am all ears for any other all in one solutions that people have used/like.

If you mean you are trying to get wifi to a separate building, some sort of mesh network like Eero, google wifi may work, but I tried that for my free standing garage/workshop and it was slow. I ended up getting a powerline adapter and a separate cheap wifi router for the outbuilding.

    • A young story and an old story!  Yesterday I played Pinehurst #6. A foursome was scheduled but only two of us showed up. I knew one person and the other was a father and daughter. Well only the daughter showed and off we went.  So.  I was 50 years older than her, she is 17 and a very good golfer. She’s off to Norte Dame on a golf scholarship next year after she completes high school. She’s a +2 HDCP. So off we go, she’s playing a hybrid set of tees I’m playing White tees. She hits it straight and decently long for her age.  We are both even thru 3 holes until I make a double on the 4th hole. By the time we finish the front I’m 2 over and she’s 1 over. Back nine I had 1 birdie, 2 bogey’s and the rest were pars for a 75. She shoots 34 on the back with 3 birdies, two were back to back.  A71 for her.  She will be playing in the Woman’s  North South here next week and the Junior as well.  She has no desire to become a Pro Golfer, she is going to Medical School to become an Anesthesiologist.  Impressive I thought! Todays old story…played with two old guys, one is 85 but plays ok and the other was 79. I’m the young guy at 67.  What a comedy!  I could tell immediately they play a lot together as the ribbing never stopped.  I quickly learned to stay alert as their shots started going everywhere!  Then the 85 year old guy gets the shanks! Never seen it so bad and I’ve had them a few times but never like this. The other guy played a very military game with shots left, right, left and so one. The on the 9th hole the 79 year old left a club on the previous hole and left to get it. Then the 85 year old checks his bag and the lost club is in it. Off he goes to get the other guy. They return eventually as the 1st guy went two holes back searching for his club. I’m in the fairway on the 10th hole waiting and here they come.  So then the 79 year old turns his cart steering wheel tightly to turn around and somehow gets the tow hook caught over the right front wheel axle rod so now the cart can only go in a circle!  It took about 15 minutes to figure that out! We fixed it using one of his irons to pull the tow hook loose! What next I thought.  We finally finished. The good news there was we finished in 2hrs 40min! Happy 4th!
    • Some work on losing the right elbow angle sooner.  At any speed right now, this feels more like I am casting the club than losing the right elbow angle. So, more work on getting what the good feel of this is. 
    • Just wanted to post an update on the state of my game. We’ve hit that time of year when I’m too exhausted after work to get quality practice in, so I haven’t been practicing. I’m not sure that’s necessarily a bad thing this year as I’ve been overdoing my piece anyway. I was worried about the lack of practice but I ended up hitting the ball pretty well (more on this later) my last time out. I’ve been hitting my driver pretty solidly. There’s still the issue of leaving the face open at impact, but I’m aiming to play a push off the tee. This way if I square the face, I’ll end up in the left rough, but if I hit a big push there’s more of a chance it stays in play. It kind of works if there’s enough room to miss right (ie there’s another hole over there). I’m hitting my irons fairly well, too. Again, I’m aiming for a push, but it’s not as pronounced as with the driver. As long as I don’t draw the ball, I’ll end up in decent shape. However, and this is what I alluded to earlier, I’m randomly topping the ball. It’s kind of weird because on any given shot I’ll either hit it like a single digit handicap or I’ll hit it like a 30. I suspect it has something to do with my trail elbow in transition but I haven’t really had the energy to work on it. Oddly enough I’ve been hitting my 3w really well but my 2h like crap, even off the tee. Might be time to replace it with a 5w. I’m going to start hitting the 3w more and see how it goes. I had some issues with contact on distance wedges, but I made an adjustment and that seems to working. I think I have to remap my distances, though.  Short game is kind of there. Some of it is mental error - wrong club or shot choice. I need to get out of the habit of using my 60° wedge for everything. I also pitch the ball better than I think I do and I should trust that, but I’m scarred from blading the ball so much earlier in the year that I’m afraid to swing through, which causes me to blade the ball or hit it short of my target. I’m actually putting pretty well. Had a bit of an issue earlier in the year on short putts, but figured out the problem and fixed it. Sometimes I’m a little lazy in reading a putt through, or I’ll get over my ball and second guess myself. Those are stupid mistakes. Thats kind of it. I’m going to try to get more practice in, but if I only have one day a week or something for golf, I’m just going to play.
