I got fios, 15/2...

for some reason I get 14/4 via speakeasy and testmy.net. 14 is about right, but 4 is over what I'm paying for. Works for me though.

Hmmm...



Thought my laptop was a bit slow, this test is from my game rig in the office.

A couple of weeks ago, I was pulling 5 meg down, and 500 up. Seems there is an issue.. Time to call Charter....
