I didn't realize that 3mbps was no longer considered broadband. Now I can say I pay Comcrap $50 for non-broadband service.

I used to have 6mbps, upgraded to 50 mbps saw some improvement but not drastic. (Still couldn't stream 3D Netflix until they paid Comcast to stop throttling them.) But dropping to 3mbps I do notice a signficant difference.


Honestly, I think 10mbps is pretty much a fair speed for most Americans (as most Americans stream these days)

So what happens....

It always escapes, adapts, finds alternatives, worse IT MUTATES, MATES, MORPHS with existing E. Coli, and slowly eradicates E. Coli.

Oh that's great you say, NO IT'S NOT!!!! Believe it not you NEED E. Coli bacteria. There are numerous varietes, many are beneficial to the digestive track. Some are bad, but many facilitate digestion.
