LOT8's...

Wonder whatever happened with that anyways..  Used to be a popular topic around here, and now I never see so much as a whisper about it.  Pretty sure that there are still people who want it though, right?

Nope...they would be in the cable co. video head-ends.  When I was a kid, our cable head end was a few suburbs over in Cleveland Heights.  That office served probably 20 different suburbs on the east side of Cleveland.

Ours would say "Cleveland Heights" for all of the suburbs, too.  Perhaps the video hub was in The Woodlands?

The LOT8's that is on channel 225 right now is "The Woodlands" as well just like Comcast was also.

 

Not sure really what to say to that then.

Lets hope that the pilot works for them and they roll it out from coast to coast.

I am thinking that as well too.....but still makes you wonder how and where the Star is being placed though.

 

I know there are quite a few guys that work for at&t that live out in this area, and makes me wonder if that's how we got the service before even major parts of houston has it yet.

 

I also noted in a previous thread that i was getting a faster internet speed after an issue that i had recently with the service, they uncapped my speed and am getting a very fast download and upload speed as well.

 

I'm trying to take a pic of both these things at the same time also.

You're hitting the jackpot tonight!  It just finished here, and still hotel weather. :smileysad:  I'll record a while longer, just in case.

This is a question about speed actually.......what speeds are people receiving from your gateway?

 

upload: 2048

download: 29216

 

Now, what is everyone else getting at this time?

Depends what package you have?   OK, mine is horrible!  I'm on Pro and it's usually 2800/2900! 

Just tried CA and ME, same bad numbers.  I'm attributing it to nightly maint.

 

      

Back to normal this AM speed wise.  Just watched nearly 8 hrs. of TWC, nothing for the LOT8s.  So, guess you are the lucky testers, sean!

Sean, that is your RG sync rate to your vho...  That doesn't necessarily translate at all into what you're using for regular hsia access..

 

Whats all this hubbub about LOT8's anyways?  /looks innocent
