AzTechGuy writes "Early this year I received one of the 'Whitebox' routers to test the speed of my ISP and compare it to the advertised speed. Today I received an email that they have released the first report with another report due at the end of the year. My results do not correspond with the results reflected in the report."
It appears that most ISPs are within 80% of their advertised speeds during peak hours with Verizon leading the pack mostly exceeding
their advertised rates. Cablevision users, on the other hand, shouldn't expect more than half of the promised bandwidth (youch!).
