Gen5 since late March.....

Re: Gen5 since late March.....

I'm saying the reason why they included the video optimizer in the first place was to save data, but I'm pretty sure it was also to discourge users from automatically streaming anything above 360p.

To be honest, I'm still boggled as to why I can watch Youtube videos in 1080p when I have speeds like the first pic, and even lower.  The VDS has to be off, of course, but it still works without issue.  At the same time, I know others with speeds of 1Mbps or 2Mbps have buffering all over the place with 480p Youtube vids.  Maybe it's that my beam is still lightly loaded, even though my overall speed is low.  

 

Edit:  I should add that the latter speed is highly unusual for me at this time of night.  Normally it's like the first, or even worse.  Maybe it's that it's Friday night and everyone is out.  Well, everyone who isn't freezing right now.  Smiley Sad     It's -1 degrees here, presently.  May hit -10 tonight.

I finally took the plunge and ordered a smart phone.  Well, a faux smart phone, as it's still tracfone, but it's Android based and supposedly 4G LTE, so when I get and transfer my info from the old phone I'll be curious to see what kind of speed I get on it.

Also awake before 8 AM most mornings so download lots then during Bonus time.



I'm generally up 5-6 or so. Morning Bonus time 'heavy lifting' for me is:
1. Update iphone/ipad apps, which now have be done per device (thanks, Apple).

2. Check for Apple Store updates.

3. Check for other application updates in MacUpdate.

4. Check for podcasts in iTunes.

5. Check for Homebrew updates (Linux-like things built for macOS).

6. Update Office mid-way, second week of the month.

7. Check if there's anything interesting on Usenet (yeah, still).

8. Check for Fedora and Parallels VM Updates.

It's amazing how much data all these things eat, but it's all done in about 15-30' because of the good morning speeds; and I too never run out of Bonus, or Anytime for that matter. Usually it's the iOS apps that kill you because there can be between 7-10 to update on average per day. Some update weekly, which is absolutely ridiculous.

I have a Huawei Ascend XT 1611 and love it. Huge screen, fast and cheap. I love Android myself, rooted and deleted bloatware.
