How Does Your ISP Stack Up?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Talk" @ 04:00 AM

"As we continue to stream more and more great movies and TV shows, we find ourselves in the unique position of having insight into the performance of hundreds of millions of long duration, high-definition video streams delivered over the Internet."

Unfortunately my ISP (CenturyLink aka Embarq) doesn't stack up very well, but I do live in a rural area of the state so the fact that I even have broadband at all via DSL is amazing to me. I used to use Hughes Satellite for my broadband service, even though it was horribly slower than what I have now it was still better than dialup. So does anyone else think this might be just a little poke towards the providers in this war of net neutrality? Then again, Comcast is right up at the top so not sure how bad they feel about this being posted, in fact I would think it would give them some bragging rights to get more sales.

Monitor Your iPhone Data Usage

"It's no secret that iPhone users are data whores. Whether it's the access they have to data-connect applications, the ability they possess to stream video and audio, or how they utilize the Web browsing experience in general, iPhone owners as a group use more data than the average smartphone user."

I suppose if you need to keep close tabs on your usage because of your plan, or if you just want to get a screen shot and email it to de la Vega to show him that you aren't a data hog like he says you are, then you might want to get this $2.99 USD application. This also monitors your home broadband usage for a limited number of carriers, they list them on their website. It isn't too useful for me now but in version 1.2 they will be adding AT&T to the mix so perhaps.
