do have clear 4g 6Mbps for all other stuff...which want to upgrade due to ability for HD viewing at times. not trading currently else had also ATT drop in.

was recently talking to some folks offering Line of Sight...but other than that see only Comcast / ATT as the offerings. will be great to know of any other alternatives offerings of at-least 11Mbps or more from any Bay area people.

also any reco's for load balancer....only for Wan failure?...nay something in the 200-400$ range? ..dont need anything fancy just a Wan failover.

thnx

I hope you know how lucky you are.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

Noticed a lot of people just carrying out a speed test against the nearest server on speedtest.net that they can find. That's not a useful measure. For the average user, most of your traffic will not be to/from that server <50 miles away from you.

A good proxy for testing your daily "internet speed" is to ping and download test files from the major content delivery network providers (Akamai, Amazon Cloudfront, Level 3, Internap, Limelight) and cloud service providers (Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure). A good web UI for doing this is https://www.cloudharmony.com/speedtest. Alternatively, you can just use test files: http://client.akamai.com/install/test-objects/50MB.bin

If your goal is to assess your "internet speed for trading", then there's a high chance that you're interacting with servers in Chicago or NY/NJ. You can try Steadfast (ping 208.100.4.54 / download http://testfile.chi.steadfast.net/largedata.bin) or Interactive Brokers (gw1.ibllc.com).

Are you just looking for a load balancing router? Probably TP-LINK for $100+.

If you're looking for a secondary ISP, you *might* (not sure what are the rates in SF) be able to find Cogent dedicated internet access at that rate. Or drop to Comcast/Verizon residential as your backup service and then use Cogent as your main, the total cost should be lower than maintaining a Comcast business line + secondary ISP.

From the desert in Israel, 100 Mbps symmetric, not bad
Bottleneck my LAN in 100 Mbps, as the link is 200 Mbps

Now as of 11-5-2015

37.21 mbps down and 6.24 mbps up.

TWC boosted the speeds in my area over the summer. Just saw this and decided to retest it.
