    Right now I'm on the standard plan (5m down/768k up) and for $15 more, I plan on upgrading to the Turbo package (10m down/2m up). I was wondering, does anyone have any experience with this plan? Right now, my real upload max is about 46 kB/sec, or 368 kbps (FAR below the advertised speed). I'm curious as to what kind of throughput speeds to actually expect.

    Thanks for any input.

    Edit: It's on the BT forum because that's what I'd mainly use the higher speeds for

    I use roadrunner too and was thinking the same thing but in my area max upload is only 1mb. You say you use it mainly for torrenting and want better speeds those extra $15 put that towards a seedbox and watch your ratios grow better than they would with the roadrunner turbo. Thats just my opinion it would be money better spent. Also keep your fingers crossed that Time Warner doesn't start charging by what we use because we will both be screwed.

    As weird as it sounds, I really have no interest in seedboxes =\

    And I believe the tiered pricing will only be a test for introductory subscribers (for now at least :| )

    Man, I would LOVE to have FiOS. It's out of the question right now though, since my city is a relatively small market and I think I'll have moved to Phoenix for college by the time we'd get it here. I know it's available in Phoenix though, so that's something to look forward to eventually

    Still a better "Deal" than the West Coast.

    It's $60/month for 10 down/2 up here. You're getting ripped off!
