I’ve been wanting to upgrade to business class Road Runner for some time, but haven’t had the chance to do so until now. There’s a lot of reasons behind my wanting to do this, some of them are:
- static IP addresses are only available via Road Runner’s business class offering
- while download speeds are the same or less than residential, upload speed is significantly higher (on paper)
- the residential cable modem I have only works at 10M half duplex for the ‘client’ side interface, which means while i run a gig-e or 100M full network in my home, I’m throttled to that at my uplink.
So, I put the call in, got the quote, signed it, and sent it back.
2 days later and I have a shiny new modem. But even better, I have this:
