    I may work from home more often. My office is kind of pokey (although with better upload)

    I think the proper response to that is "Bite Me"

    I may be mistaken . . . :)

    I admit to not understanding how your speed is so low in California.

    I believe it is the joys of Time Warner cable (now Spectrum).

    This is why I only get internet and I got it on a deal as well although I had to talk them into it.

    So, after a decade using a ISDN/DSL connection from the german Telekom, they decided that it was time to change my tariff too (they are changing all ISDN connections to VOIP connections in the course of several years and they really want ISDN gone :deadhorse: ) and now I have a VOIP connection (not that I had a choice - I wanted to keep my old system as my old DSL-moden still worked perfectly, but no... :geezer: ). They couldn’t believe that I chose the "XS" tariff that lacks a telephone flatrate and were surprised when I told them that that is cheaper than the S tariff with the flatrate as I have less than 3 hours of outgoing phoneconnections in a month...

    New connection:

    Well, at least from "F" to "C"

    My update, pretty much the exact same as from November 2016. It possibly would be faster if my son wasn't home and if I didn't have Utorrent open.
