FIOS network speed and wiring.
This is usually the time for Prairie Home Companion
, but as luck would have it tonight is the fund raising edition so I am able to listen and type at the same time.
Still working on your October 11, 2005 letter. I think I left off at the point you were discussing the installation of your new Verizon FIOS
fiber optic line.
You know all I can do is feel really left out. Oh do not feel bad for me, but besides the fact that I have no access to any computer, remember the last internet access I have had is over nine years ago, a quick glimpses at FCI Beckley
As I understand it, the fastest access via dial up is 56 KB. My question is: is the "B" in KB or MB, bits or bytes? As I seem to remember my definitions, a byte is made up of 8 bits. If both speed references are all bits, and kilo is 1,000 and mega is 1,000,000, then the 5 MB download and 2 MB upload FIOS fiber optic service you have is really fast.
Bill and I were talking and he said he had a 56 KB dial-up and one of his relatives had cable modem. He was looking at the advertisement for Verizon DSL and I told him he might not be able to get that as he needed to be within a certain distance of the telephone company.
Good for you on using BX cable
. I had rewired the house we owned in Queens
and the armor cutting tool
was one of my favorite. Although my work at St. Anthony's taught me the real electricians
always use the hacksaw blade. I know you have to use BX in NYC but I thought outside the city you could use Romex
? But I do think the BX is certainly a safer bet. Less likely to have rodents
chew through the BX.
