    That's the promise of G.Fast. It's a new technology that can deliver blazing fast internet over the wires (phone lines) you already have in your home. For many, it will be the first time they'll have more than one choice for broadband.
  • These places have the slowest Internet in the country

    h2>Do you think your Internet is slow? That's nothing compared to what these folks are going through. If you live in Chicago, and try to connect via AT&T (T, Tech30) from 4 p.m to 11 p.m., speeds for certain websites and Internet services are basically like dial-up in the 1990s. There are a handful of other examples from researchers at M-Lab, which provides tools to assess Internet performance. In some cases, Internet speeds can be as slow as 0.5 Megabits per second. Take Seattle, where CenturyLink (CTL) customers trying to access particular sites from 9 p.m. to 10 p.m. will...

    ...A new FCC finding on broadband service sheds some light on why: Internet speeds generally reach within 20 percent of their advertised rate even during peak usage hours, with some providers far exceeding it. Breaking service out by technology, cable providers deliver 93 percent of advertised download speeds on average – even during peak use evening hours – with companies that have implemented DOCSIS 3.0 faring better. And fiber service delivered a whopping 114% of advertised speeds with Verizon leading the pack. Unsurprisingly, upload speeds were even stronger, with throughput often exceeding advertised rates. The report comes as a blow...
