Quote from: PONIES;58962If their goal was to drive viewers to piracy then it's working.
I would rather pirate a recording from someone who has an ABC affiliate that isn't an *** than watch WISN's bug polluted crap, higher bitrate or not.
With piracy scene rips being available from other ABC affiliates or international channels, and even logo free copies from retail download services, there is no reason to watch WISN's cluttered mess. WISN isn't even on the radar for me when it comes to sources to view ABC network programming.
Quote from: WIwinger;58461I have U-Verse internet service 6000/1000.
I wanted to check my speed yesterday and I opened speakeasy.com as I have done many times in the past. This time when I selected a site "i.e. Atlanta or Chicago etc." the speed needle quickly spiked to around 5.3 and in the blink of an eye slowed down to about 1.0 for downloads for the rest of the test. Then for the upload the needle quickly spiked to 9.3 and then within a split second slowed to 3.0. The results showed 5.3 and 9.3. It seems to me that something is wrong because in the past the needle would always hold at roughly what the speed was supposed to be during the complete test. I checked the speed on three computers, one plugged directly into the residential gateway, one plugged into another router behind the gateway, and one was wireless. The results were the same. The needle would always spike and then within a split second slow way down on every test.
Do you think I have a problem with my gateway, or is U-Verse intentionally slowing down the speeds, but spiking the beginning of the results so speed testing software would show a better result? I also tried with pcpitstop.com with the same results.
Quote from: trev57;57736Really? The guy I know that works at WDJT told me they were still on track for mid September-early October. Then again, it wouldn't surprise me if they did end up delaying it.
Quote from: mrschimpf;56591Actually there shouldn't be a problem at all; the 16MB plan has a 250GB cap. You'd have to stream Netflix all thirty days for so many hours, or be a very heavy data user and torrent entire weeks of primetime to get even near that.
I've been monitoring my usage as of late on both my computers. I download 2.5 GB of podcasts a day from CNET, Revision3 and TWiT, all very video heavy at HD quality, and do around 30-40 YouTube videos a week, then some more for audio podcasts. On average I usually get to 85-90GB per month. If you use the Network Meter Sidebar Gadget you can track your bandwidth use by accounting and then resetting at the start of your service month, then adjust if you're flirting with 250GB. However it shouldn't be a problem at all.
