To optimize a DSL connection

September 5, 2015

Effect of DSL line quality based on speedtest results (in Mb/s downloading and then uploading + latency (ms))

Fixed line (5 Sept. ’15)
FD4CN => Verizon-DSL 5.2, .87 + 25
FD4CN => Verizon-DSL 5.2, .86 + 25 [iteration #2]
(matches ’13 quality now)

Bad line (3 Sept ’15)
FD4CN => Verizon-DSL 4.9, .51 + 29

Original line quality (7 Dec. ’13)
860mbg11=>Verizon-DSL : 6.4, .9 (2nd try: 6.07, 0.84, 33) FD4CN => Verizon-DSL : 5.1, .8

There are others who argue that we may regret even modest constraints on the NSA. Former Microsoft research head Nathan Myhrvold recently wrote a hair-raising treatise arguing that, considering the threat of terrorists with biology degrees who could wipe out a good portion of humanity, tough surveillance measures might not be so bad. Myhrvold calls out the tech companies for hypoc-risy. They argue that the NSA should stop exploiting information in the name of national security, he says, but they are more than happy to do the same thing in pursuit of their bottom lines. “The cost is going to be lower efficiency in finding terrorist plots–and that cost means blood,” he says. “}}
