uVerse Gigabit is On!

My mid 2012 Laptop is getting about 240-250 GB on wireless
My iPhone11 is getting 400+!

EDIT: Curiously my son's PS4 is only getting 66mbs wireless, 60mbs wired!

booo. fastest ATT we can get *might* be 75/18.

Of course, more than happyh with our 50/15 for $30 a month. Super steady since not shared like cable. 4 devices doing whatever is totally fine.

I could go for a choice between super-fast and cheap.

What I get is two choices of mediocre speeds at medium-high cost.

We just installed fiber, thanks to Metronet. A true game-changer.

Even though my VPN connection is officially slower than VPN via Charter (servers are closer to the cable ISP), my connection doesn't drop and works just fine for full Zoom calls AND Outlook etc.

No negatives at all.

Nice.

I'm not sure if gigabit is available here. Probably not. If it is, I probably don't want to pay them what they're asking anyway.

Metronet fiber has been sending out info that they're coming soon.

AT&T's contractor pulled conduit and then fiber on the main road outside my neighborhood nearly 3 years ago.

But they haven't yet deemed us worthy enough to pull it in our neighborhood...I'm roughly a quarter of a mile away from a symmetrical 1GB fiber connection...<sob>
