    Wow... another one this morning using a different server. Check out the difference in upload speed...

    What the heck would I ever need 25Mb/s uploads for?

    Just for giggles try that same slower server again. I noticed that when we switched to the higher rate FIOS service - the upload still seemed throttled the first time I checked. Looks like you have the same Tier FIOS service I do. Are those tests being done over your wireless connection?

    Of course - things move slower just generally in Frederick. I actually wouldn't mind moving out that direction.

    Yeah, I opted for the triple-play with the Extreme HD package and 25/25.

    Another test with Frederick, MD:



    I'm going to guess that they're throttling uploads at that test site.

    As an aside, I'm pretty happy with the service so far. Even though they're using what appears to be an older Motorola STB (at least compared to the one Comcast supplied), the UI and controls are far more responsive and sophisticated.

    Not terribly pleased with having to ten-digit dial phone numbers (even local ones). That's kind of pathetic, seeing as how Verizon is primarily a phone company.

    It would definitely appear so. They must be 'anti-server'.

    I don't know if the 10-digit phone numbers is a Verizon thing or not - although it's interesting that you didn't have to do that until you switched. Ever since we moved to Maryland - we've had to do that - it was a shock to the system back then - but I guess I sort of assumed that the days of not dialing the area code were over. Perhaps that only applies to overly populous areas like down here. But - now that you've highlighted the change - I realize that we've had Verizon phone service from day 1 in Maryland. I need to poll some people without Verizon and see if they have to dial the area code. I know that at work I still have to use the area code - even for local numbers.

    My progression was from a standard Verizon land-line, to Comcast "Digital Voice" (VoIP) and now Verizon's FiOS VoIP. Up until now, I haven't had to dial ten digits for local or regional long distance. Now, the 717 area code is pretty pervasive here (at least in about a 50 mile radius), so that might be part of it. But seeing as how Comcast could somehow manipulate their VoIP service to work just like a standard landline, I can't see why Verizon couldn't do the same.

    The first one is the generic Speedtests site, the second is the link supplied by schweb in post #1, the third is DSL reports Java based test.

    I would also note that the DLS reports Flash based test gave me 2Mb and the DSL Reports Java based test gave me 18Mbs. Now since I know my actual designated cap is supposed to be 15Mbs, I have to wonder about some of these tests. They all gave me about the same upload, which is capped at 2Mbs.

    What I'd like to know is how come so many people in this thread are in the 97th percentile and above. How do you do it?
