I just got @webpass internet at home. What would you do with a 100 Mbps symmetrical internet connection?

Incredibly, the bottleneck in my internet conncetion now is my (new-ish) 802.11n Airport Extreme router. I guess it’s time to go back to ethernet!

The best part about getting Webpass isn’t the speed. It’s being able to call Comcast to tell them to cancel service. Every dollar I can avoid giving Comcast is a win.

Webpass costs $400 per year, so about $33 per month. $400 flat, no taxes or other fees. And it includes amazing customer service.

  1. This is pretty phenomenal – puts university connections to shame! (I have 11 Mbps symmetric over Wifi in my lab at MIT).I suspect that your bottleneck is not your router, but most Internet webservers!
