That's good I hate buffering!

No, it's not as fast as cable. It's not possible, no matter what they claim.

They didn't claim. When I say "as fast as cable", all I mean is that I have yet to tell a difference in speeds when browsing or streaming. We did a speed test and the number was lower than when we had TWC, but as I said, I can't tell the difference when I'm using the Internet.

I just got a notice from Metronet my speed will be boosted to 200mbps and if I want i can purchase 1gbps for a addl. $30.I will probably pass on the gbps as I don't download music or songs.
Would gbps help the lagging of YouTube and videos online if I went to the faster speed or is that problem on the website end?

I was saying I don't think upping your speed would help your lagging from YouTube it's probably on there end

And I love our fiber optic it doesn't slow down no matter who is on it
