Submission + - ISPs lie about broadband "up to" speeds (arstechnica.com)

Haffner writes: Ars Technica has an article detailing the difference between ISP advertised "up to x Mbps" speeds and the actual speeds, in addition to some possible solutions. They find that on average, the advertised speeds were "up to 6.7 Mbps" while the real median was 3 Mbps and the mean was 4 Mbps. This implies that ISPs were falsely advertising by at least a factor of 50%.

Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
