Like AC said they forbid real bridging on residential, they try to take over dns requests and I have them seen go as far as put ads on 404 requests, etc.. by legal injection on fiber. Depends on the city / state. On the business side they try to pull less, but still do some real bs on their side. Try to backup via a secure method to the cloud and you'll see them throttle real quick because they assume your torrenting....

As someone who has used AT&T Fiber and installed it for many people stay away it's a mess and they cripple upload data, not only do they throttle it, their pos modems get buffer over bloat, crash and they force you to use their dns. Tons of customers have issues with Google and open dns having "errors" within their network.

Remember AMD doesn't have the resources to put a full staff on this yet. Hopefully with zen they'll get enough market share to put more time into it. I don't get why people talk crap about OSS. In the past they have released it and said add code and no one did, so I can see why they take their time.

This is so true haha best post of the day. I can't count the number of apple users that say they are "techie" and "program". Just to find out they never have finished a program or website yet alone release one. Then I ask myself so why am I fixing it? if your so tech savy? It's part of the trendy apple culture. Don't get me wrong I have seen exceptions.

Funny how nvidia won't share anything or help the market but they'll take everyone else's tech and use it lol. I want karma to catch up to nvidia so maybe they'll think twice about trying to pull one or charge high prices on its customers again. Only reason customers needed the new 900 series is because they pulled some seriously shady stuff with the studios.
