Win!

Don't you want to thank GOOGLE for making this possible?

You know you do!

BTW, which router did you upgrade to?

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. Fusion® Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)
Best 1/4: 1,320 nanoseconds @ 670,616,629.2 miles per hour

Actually it was all in progress in 2012 and the first public announcement in 2014 as they were about done with the two biggest markets. The Carolinas is the third so it was started early 2014. It actually takes quite a bit of time to completely upgrade every single hubsite across two states to DOCSIS 3 compliant equipment, and replace any old copper along the way. No-way it can be done in a couple months like the click-bait sites think. Just like Y2K was being worked on at least a decade before the Media got ahold of it and made things up pretending it was something new.

I bought the ASUS RT-AC68U.

Ok, so the writing has been on the wall for some time. Either way. I'm glad the increase is here and it's not supposed to cost any extra. I actually stepped my plan down to the 200/20 level and saved quite a bit of $$$ over the course of a year. It's still 4x faster than what I had before. I just don't need 300/20.

It looks like in addition to Google Fiber, AT&T is coming to town ...

AT&T to push high-speed fiber Internet to 38 more cities - Dec. 7, 2015

Verizon is stepping up the game too - granted this is experimental tech. ...

Verizon wants to make the Internet 1,000 times faster - Aug. 11, 2015

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...

Tried it again, the upgrade with the new router might have kicked in.

Joe fiber light going down the line is just like water in a hose . A sharp bend or kink will slow down the travel , it may have worked its way out on your end
