    Sometimes I wonder why I bother paying for it since almost none of the servers can respond as fast as the connection. Any thoughts on this ... aside from game servers even most video servers don't transfer faster than a few K. More of a gripe but maybe there can be some discussion here.

    It was definitely worth the switch. Can't ever see myself going back.

    Well ... I would love it if the software download servers, other than the repositories, were fast enough so I wouldn't have to wait an hour to download a small 50 meg file. Which is why I am thinking my connection is kind of a waste of money right now. Why not upgrade the servers before the connection speeds so we can use them?

    I have Verizon FiOS.

    50 mbps down, 20 mbps up.

    $100 a month.

    I have had ZERO problems with this service and highly recommend it. If there's even a hint of a problem, I call FiOS and their service reps and very professional.

    I think you missed the point. Though I figured out where the problem is and well, no matter how fast your connection is there are still many servers out there that just can't transfer as fast yet. You have to realize that how quickly you can get data from a site depends on how fast of a connection they have and how fast of a server they have as well. No matter how fast your computer and net connection are, if theirs is only half that you will have only half that. My complaint is this: why am I paying for my speed when most of the servers I go to can't even handle it?
