I live in the "county seat" plus just across the river from down town of
the County's "capital" city, and we do not have good things like that.
For the $40 USD we get 15 down and 1 up, if we are very lucky. Even
though we are paying for that service, we usually get about a tenth of
that on a normal day.
oh, that's really sad to hear. :-(
Before we have some IPv6-only hosts -- which will only be testing
machines anyways -- I want to give some instructions on how to get IPv6
connectivity, independent from your ISP.
I have held some talks/workshops on that, and also have some small
howto, I just need to adapt this a bit, and then plan to publish it.
Sadly, the same conditions that Tim explained are pretty well the same
in Canada. Although, most universities and and some public sector
entities have ramped up to meet these needs. For example, my school
board (Waterloo Catholic School Board), the Waterloo Public School Board
and the University of Waterloo teamed up 5 years ago and laid their own
fibre optic lines. They just got tired of waiting for private industry
to provide fibre optic lines. We now have a blazing fast intranet and we
also sell space on it to private industry to pay back the costs of line
installation -- we now compete with private industry.
I think a problem that we encounter here in N.America that is not seen
in Europe is that our national fibre optic lines are run by private
industry whereas in EU, most states own nationalized their lines. The
N.American model is build on "for profit first" and companies are
reluctant to upgrade quickly if they are making decent profits from
their lines. The profit margin in upgrading is just too small.
BTW ... we just got our fibre optic lines for our neighbourhood just
last week. And, as absurd as it sounds, the line into our house is not
fibre optic. The companies still offer blazing speeds, but the
homeowners rarely get one half of what they pay for.
Europe is definitely ahead of us on this.
