The contract on my $39.95 150/150 internet has ended and and wife decided
we're going to the $70 250/250 contractless package. Yay, no more contracts
for anything for anyone.

The switch over is supposed to happen today, so I decide to do some
dslreport speedtests

150/150 shaped to 145/145 http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest/36261220
150/150 shaped to 240/240 http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest/36261354
150/150 no shaping http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest/36261439

After that second test, I realized it hadn't happened yet. I did notice
that I'm almost better off with no shaping on my end. The no shaping test
does show my download shooting way up only to fall down shortly after and
level off.

These results are better than the last time I tested several years back.
I'm tempted to shape slightly above my provisioned rate and let my ISP
handle the AQM, but I have a bit more testing to do. I may attempt some
alternative shapers+AQM with pfSense. FairQ+Codel I hear works well. Once
2.4.4 is release, using fq_Codel will be nice to try.

I hope to show the 25/0250 results later today.

250/250 results

250/250 unshaped http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest/36310277
250/250 shaped to 240/240 http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest/36310700
250/250 shaped to 300/300 http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest/36310832

I think I'll shape to 300/300 for now. This limits how high the initial
download burst can get while allowing the ISP to do the bulk of the AQM.
