100Mbps coming this year ... faster than my LAN :rolleyes:

New Rates from July 15th, 2010
original link at flow - removed

With other words, 5Mbps will be the slowest available package from flow.
I will see if I can get that here ... my 2Mbps is already having issues ... my flow phone connection has distortion, wonder how that will affect the overall performance of the flow network here in Triniland. Hope they got the 1,000 Terra bits per second connection to the Internet backbone.

This topic I knew would be here, after perhaps a year of not logging in, I just wanted to put my two cents in.....

In my opinion it's very easy for Flow to give out 25-50-100Mbps simply because not many people will be able to consistently maintain those speeds, even for those people who download. Cause what people fail to realize it's not what speed you've got but it's what speed you are allowed when connecting to a server, which is most times capped unless you are paying for it.
If the upload was to be increased (which would have been great for me) from their top speed of 2 to perhaps 4-6Mbps, they will have major problems.

So the question one needs to ask is how much faster can I really surf or perhaps download, from you having a 10-15Mbps connection whilst on the phone using magic jack & playing a game on-line.

Hmmm...greater bandwidth means more bandwidth to share with devices...

Yes, but for a residential customer, I do not see alot of them having that many devices that would benefit from all that bandwidth. Business customers - yes, but not that much residential customers.

A typical HD stream is between 7Mbps to 10Mbps.
So there won't be that many households with greater than 5 computers with each person wanting to watch an HD stream at the same time.

well i wasn't referring specifically to the 100mb/s package but all the new packages- and also the fact that the upgrade would allow people on even the 2mb/s like me to get bumped up to 5 mb/s and thus enjoy HD video without much buffering

For the last few days I have had a slow down in speed.
Has anyone else experience this ?

Honestly they need to change the upload speeds 2mb max is flipping ridiculous. 2/3/5 would be good or 3/5/10 even better.

Totally agree. I have my business up and running on a 2mbit download and I'm in desperate need of a better upload speed over a download speed.
