1.5 is a human rights violation.

Infrastructure is often the limiting factor.

Meh, what you write only matters if you're ugly.

Many people would be smart enough to get it...if they were poker players. Nobody is going to understand the link between cognitive bias quickly enough to think that's remotely funny unless they are a poker player themselves, and at that, one who has probably studied poker a bit. Don't write for yourself, write for your audience.

You guys should play aaron's express literature sheep that will reveal tonight if more people play. Would link, but on phone.

You should also play my 200 Question SHEEP, but that's less time-sensitive.

I guess you don't stream much (any) HD video?

Around my area and I would assume most of US, low-end data speeds are around 15 mb/s. Your phone on LTE should crush these numbers.


Could changing providers improve this? Could ringing up to complain?

Changing providers unlikely to help assuming it's all on the Openreach network.

Calling can't hurt. I recently changed providers and was promised 100mbps. Best I was getting was 17. Called them up and they changed some settings and it's all good now. I wonder if they throttle it on purpose and only give you what you're supposed to have if you complain? I'm with Spectrum/Charter now.

I know in some places you are guaranteed an upper limit (yea, its that stupid). heavy usage in the area can cause it to lower. in my experience only business account will a major handler guarantee a bottom limit.
