Castle Frostbite just got a major Internet upgrade:

fiberspeed

 

I opted for the 50Mbps down/25Mbps up package, and as you can see, Speedtest says we’re getting pretty close to that. Our DSL line was 1.5Mbps down/0.75Mbps up, so this is a significant jump in bandwidth.

And look at that latency. It’s a thing of beauty.

  1. Wow! I live in Orange County CA and I’m jealous of Castle Frostbite. Who is your vendor?

    • Local outfit called WiValley. They’re using the NH FastRoads infrastructure, which was a federal grant thing to get fiber to all the towns along the Dartmouth College corridor. Profs and students gotta have their YouTubez, I guess.

  2. I just signed up for Comcast’s 50/12 yesterday, having finally gotten sick of CenturyLink not offering anything faster than 7/1.5 in my area.

    It will be blissful when they install it.

    • “Blah blah, blah, Comcast sucks.”

      Still better than 7/1.5 DSL that also intermittently sucks.

      (And we have Comcast Business here at work, and there is literally nothing wrong with it.)
