Final Speedtests for CWC

We've changed our name with ARIN from "Community Wireless Communications, Co." to "Wicked Broadband".

As a result, has re-started our company history.  We've asked them to keep the data from CWC, but it might not be possible.

So here is the last comparison of the ISPs in Kansas from the period July 17, 2011 to January 15, 2014.

Notice how much our network has improved.  Our fiber customers are now seeing real throughput of 300, 400 even 800 Mbps.

Quite an improvement from our humble beginnings with a 6 Mbps DSL line and a dream.

EDIT: After talking to Ookla it looks like our results won't be added back into the standings for at least a couple days, maybe as much as a month.

We recently upgraded our upstream link and changed out the configuration of our network core, so it will be interesting to see where we start out with the new DBA.

I'd like to be faster than Google Fiber (and in our fiber sites we are), but we still have a lot of legacy sites that are never going to get past 50 Mbps, so we'll likely have to settle for second place (for now).
