Why don't they invest in bringing fibre optic to places with sub 8mbps speeds? In this town I can hardly get 3mbps on most days as my phone line back to the exchange is long. Nothing to do with internal wiring as I am plugged into the test socket and do no have any extensions and I am using Ethernet yet the router still syncs at 3mbps down and 448kbps up, though the download speeds constantly fluctuate.
I just don't see the need for upgrading people who can already get decent, and by decent I mean anything which is a reliable constant 6mbps or more (I am serious, I would love to be able to receive a steady 6mbps or more rather than the flaky poor speeds I get).
Sorry for the rant but as soon as I read the article above I got mad.
End of rant.
