[quote=“5566”]Taipei area only or not?
this is basically a kick ass Tx or better, im not sure wether or not that company will be able to keep the speed up after many people register. I remember cable was super fast… when they just started…[/quote]
Only Xindian, and not all of Xindian yet. I guess the company does not mention their expansion plans.
So far I can up and download at the full 10mbit all day long. I don’t know what the rest of the fiber optic network looks like. They did note that my next door neighbor had the service already. Even DSL can bog down, I mean anywhere upstream there can be a bottleneck. This is neither DSL nor cable so I suppose time will tell.
There could be a bottlneck where the comm cable goes under the ocean, but this would affect DSL, fiber, and cable alike. Almost all my traffic goes to USA and Europe. Now obviously, there are still over a dozen hops to most of those sites. What I’ve done is remove the latency you get with DSL, and fattened the pipe. Webs surfing is much snappier, but its hardly instantaneous. Basically I have a 12 lane freeway to the shoreline. What happens to the packets after that is beyond our control.
