    They used to do that like 6 or 7 years ago then they never did...I was stuck on 100MBPS Down/20MBPS up for like 3 years as I cannot afford to pay for the higher packages that they offer.

    Yesterday I was doing a Speedtest and was shocked to see that my internet speed got a free upgrade to 250MBPS Down/50MBPS up as part of their new packages!

    It all depends on ISP, location and price. The range is huge.

    This is what I get at home...

    Connection cost is $200 USD per month but that's for a landline telephone + internet + premium TV Channels

    Here's the speed when testing other servers:

    My 500/500 is on it's way. Have wated since last easter. But the damn snow, ice and soil frost have come and stopped the progress. The Big outside fiber box is now up for my neighborhood, but nothing will happen before the frost is gone and this means I can't get it up before the spring 2019. Still on 4.3 and 0.39:(

    By mean 500/500 you mean the metallic box or the dog ,if it’s the dog i think you need to reboot the dog.exe .(joking)

    Since it’s snowy why dont you go the library,most library have free wifi so you can spend time there and wait for the ethernet box. It’s a win win for you

    I think a simple router reboot at the Hotel should make the speed go higher.
    Don't you have Google Fiber at AZ?
    Can you share just 20% with me?
    Is it on mobile data or through FTTH?
    I think they'll roll out 1Gbps affordable plans in near future.
