The Speed of Broadband

If you’re in the Cogeco servicearea (in Ontario and Quebec), you owe it to yourself to look attheir broadband solutions. I’ve been a cable-modem customer forabout 4 years now, in different parts of the city, and have beenextremely pleased. Priorto that I was a Rogers cable-modem customer, and my experience thenwas much less satisfactory.

This comes to mind watching the download task for the newest VisualStudio 2005 Release Candidate progress – 2.5GB in, my averagedownload speed is a constant 650KB/second. Not Kb/second, but real,bonafide KB/s. Amazing.
