Funny you should mention that... Today I noticed the updates for Mint 9
are really slow. This is while they are giving me a month of upgraded
speed. Over all I didn't notice any change in speed other than the
occasional peak. Since you mentioned it, today seems to be particularly
bad. Not worth the extra $10/month if you ask me.
Then there is their policy of slowing down the entire connection if
they determine someone is using bittorrent on a LAN (even if the user
caps the up and down speeds). BTW, I'm only using Firefox and
Thunderbird at the moment. Things are pretty bad.
