Post ISP speed rates?
Let's be honest. It's a load bull dookie isn't it?
ISPs such as ,you know, the big guys will have this never ending list of internet (speed) packages you can choose.
ie:
29.99 standard
39.99 turbo
49.99 faster than a speeding bullet
59.99 dont blink or your video will be over

Over the years i have changed mine to 3 different plans and i found absolutely no difference either way in none of them.
I feel its a marketing ploy. Especially the fact that they push it very hard to you on the phone.
When i had mine lowered the lady seemed to get very offensive.

currently paying $40 for 15/1. Thinking of upgrading to 20/2 for $50. Then in the summer wait for it to be freely bumped to like 100

I'm patiently waiting for the G-Fiber roll out.
