    220 Mbps!

    I just moved my Internet service from 25 Mbps to a competing 150 Mbps plan that costs less. It actually tests out to 220 Mbps, which is mind blowing to a guy that started at 0.0003 Mbps (300 BPs) back in the day.

    I downloaded a 40-minute documentary in about 30seconds. Amazing.

    1. Remember when 16KB was king.

    I remember the old dial up BBS where my phone bill was $200 one month (80s I think) almost had a stoke!!!

    2. I got Google Fiber.

    I’m averaging about 950 Mbps down and 960 Mbps up.

    Most times the server I’m connecting to can’t keep up.

      7. I could have Obama fiber

      installed during the stimulus but the Democrats left the last mile for the private sector. As a result, it sits in the ground less than 100 feet from my apartment collecting dust. No one can use it.

    3. That's insane delivery. I'm lucky to get 20. Seriously.
