My family and I are fed up with Time Warner, and our internet speeds suck compared to others who don't have Time Warner. Does anyone know of a company that'll offer me faster internet speeds than this? P.S.-I know about Verizon FiOS, but our building isn't allowing them to install wires inside the building.
Update as of 12/12/12, Well the complaning and actually switching the router for a new one worked. This is the first time that I actually got FULL SPEEDS on a G card with TinyChat, Twitter, Firefox Nightly downloading some music and my brother playing World of Warcraft in the other room.

My first suggestion would be to try to convince your building to let Verizon in. As as far as I know they have the fastest internet service. The next company that I would look into would be Comcast they have faster internet but they are not known for their good customer service.

You could get an OC768 connection http://topsavings.net/business-internet-phone/internet/sonet-oc-x/oc768-39-812-gbps
PS to properly use it, you will need a high end motherboard (with 4 or more pci e x16 slots
then install one of these in each slot
You will then need to use something like force bind IP to determine which network card each application will use.
with a 39.812 Gb/s connection, you will be able to telnet into BBS's and check email with ease :)
and if OC768 is not fast enough for you, then you can get a OC3072 connection which offers 159.252 Gb/s (with that you can stream music and check email all at the same time:) )

You would think New York would have better service, if you want the best service, well move to Kansas City, Kansas, as Google has that 1gb/s internet

You're lucky, at least you get slightly better speeds than I do. For some reason Time Warner Cable doesn't have the best speeds, especially when it comes to upload speeds. It wasn't until recently that they finally upgraded the upload speed on my plan to 1 Mbps which still isn't very good. I guess they forgot it happens to be the 2010's where people upload more than they did in the past. Unfortunately, in my area Time Warner Cable is pretty much the only reasonably priced high speed Internet provider. If you can't get a fast, reasonably priced wired internet connection you could always try looking for a fast, reasonably priced wireless Internet.

Just so I know, is your service using FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet) or FTTP (to the property)
If you have FTTP then you should get close to the advertised speeds. With FTTC, it works a little like ADSL internet, in that, if you live further away from the cabinet, you will not get as fast as advertised.
In my town, FTTC was just released, towards the end of last year. I'm lucky, I live very near the cabinet, and my internet is always very fast. My friend lives further away, he gets half the speed I do, despite being on the same plan. (76 down/20 up)
If you're on FTTC and you live far away, there is little you can do to solve it.
Hope this might help
