20 Megabits! Holy Crap!

RCN offers fat pipe

Originally uploaded by tbridge.

That’s a lot of data transfer, folks. Right now, most DSL lines in the DC area top out at 1.5mbps. Cable modem for the most part, from Comcast and others is around 10mbps. Fios is around around 15 Mbps. RCN, though, who we’ve talked about several times before here, seems to be topping out the bandwidth scale with their new 20Mbps service.

How fast is that?

It’s an iTunes Movie Store purchase in roughly 20 minutes.

That’s pretty flippin’ fast.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
