Eh - how much does a person *really* need? I remember being excited because I had 115k ISDN.

I pay for business service so it’s far more expensive than residential but I get stellar support, techs who know what they’re doing, no data caps, and a much better uplink.

and I remember scoring my first 1gb hard drive and couldn't imagine filling it :LOL:

I went from gig service 'down the shore' to 300Mb up here in the Sussex County mountains... and felt it. Optimum bought Service Electric about 2 years back and bumped it up to where I was before. I'm on video calls most of the day, vpns, multiple rdp sessions, moving data, etc... the kid is home schooled via live video chat classes... the wife streams, surfs and games... we regularly have 6 to 8 devices connected between the 3 of us. 300Mb (residential) is livable for sure, but tight.

A fiber company is pushing through the county... but I am on a cul-de-sac on a road with 5 retirees so I'm not holding my breath

I have six VMs running on my Mac Pro and that's in addition to me just using it as a workstation. Two of them are crypto validators and if I don't keep them tuned they'll consume it all. :) My problem is usually upload speed, though. I sometimes need to move terabyte-sized files to work systems and that's when everything goes to hell. I actually used to run QoS inside the house to guarantee me the lion's share of the outbound capacity.

Who knew...

I have fiber to my PC. :)

Fiber internet is not about fidelity but rather speed and therefore capacity along with distance.

If the company is running fiber on the poles then they have vastly more capacity than if they ran copper. Think about an apartment complex where they’re offering Gigabit speed to 100s of units. They would need to be running terabits on the poles to serve that street even if they weren’t oversubscribing. You can’t do that with copper with massive bundles and such.

Fiber allows for greater capacity over greater distance in a much smaller package. Why it doesn’t matter in your home is because your fiber from the street only gets to the demarcation point after which it is routed. Once routed the signal is reconstructed by the router so the distance limitation starts anew and few people have network runs over 100 meters and most are using wireless these days, anyway.

But if you’d like I could sell you a solid silver router so your buts sound better. :)

Want a real laugh? You can buy faraday cages for your wifi router so that you don’t get that icky wifi all over you. The beat part is how people complain about how their wifi doesn’t work as well.

In case you think I made that up:

There's nothing phony about Faraday cages. I made one for our obnoxiously strong Hughesnet router out of window screen, and I can run/hear an AM radio next to the router, without the cage, not a chance.


Wifi interference can disrupt sleep and cause cellular malfunction as in DNA damage?

As most people consider this to be a joke, we're probably looking at a working solution for the planet.

If your source is https://www.healthline.com/health/does-wifi-cause-cancer which contains some of your quoted material then I will raise my eyebrows at your cherry picking of the article which also says

There’s concern that the radiation from Wi-Fi causes health issues like cancer. But there are currently no known health risks in humans.

I'm fine if we don't have this debate again and predicting that, if we do, it will be heavily moderated if people have the same disagreements about "fact" vs. "opinion" that they had last time.

RF radiation is not the same thing as ionizing radiation. The heaters i. Your house are called radiators and are putting out “radiation”, too. UV radiation.

If your device is interfering with AM radio than call and have it replaced because it’s operating outside it’s allowed parameters. It’s also far more likely that the power supply is causing the AM interference than the wifi itself.
