What is a good upload speed? Why upload makes all the difference

what is a good upload speed

What is a good upload speed? This post will talk about the speed most Internet Service Providers (ISPs) don’t advertise. We’re going to cover why upload speed matters and what a bad upload speed can impact in your day-to-day Internet experience.

Ting Internet offers symmetrical gigabit Internet. That means our advertised download speeds are equal to our upload speeds. We believe the answer to the question, what is a good upload speed? is: a symmetrical one.

Can you get gigabit speeds from copper cable? Or, Why DOCSIS 3.1 is BULLSHIS 2.0

DOCSIS 3.1 or BULLSHIS 2.0?

You may have heard of Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification (DOCSIS) 3.1 as a fiber-rivaling technology that will bring gigabit speeds to homes already equipped with copper cable.

You may also have heard Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in your area advertising “gigabit speed” without having built fiber infrastructure.

For what it’s worth, DOCSIS 3.1 is an impressive hack that could satisfy a lot of people. Copper networks are more prevalent than fiber networks, there’s no denying that.

The real trouble comes when DOCSIS 3.1 is treated as a mitigation strategy and as a shortcut to gigabit, rather than investing in the upgrading of telecommunications networks to full fiber to the home (FTTH) Internet. AKA, the kind of work Ting does.

Our Internet needs have changed and old copper networks are struggling and breaking under the load. That’s why copper is the past and fiber is the future.

Ask an Exec: Why does Ting Internet require $9 to pre-order?

In a Ting Internet town, we use pre-orders to gauge demand and guide the network build. So, why does Ting Internet require $9 to place a pre-order? Why not just take an email address or some other expression of interest and call it good?

Elliot Noss, CEO of Tucows, can speak to that. Essentially, we’re using the $9 pre-orders to measure real intention, which helps us plan where to begin building the network by identifying areas with the most interest. This blog post takes a slightly deeper dive into the subject.
