Sigh; It’s been a while since I posted here but suffering through unbelievably crappy download services on CityWest’s ADSL service, prompted me to take a look at what Speed Test had to say.
While I’m having a bad day with download speeds barely approaching dial up… what struck me as interesting is that our municipal owned white elephant CityWest is only able to provide an average speed to it’s users 60% of what the rest of BC is getting. Note the ISP average for CityWest is 316 kb/s versus BC’s Average of 526.8 kb/s.
Somehow, I’m having even more trouble believing CityWest is going to be able to compete with the big boys even if they bring in their 1x data services … umm has someone mentioned to Brown, the rest of BC has now upgraded to 3G data services? But then Brown is only the General Manager of Citywest while the real power rests with the CEO and Chair of CityWest… Darn… I just hope Gordon Howie won’t make a five million dollar budget mistake at CityWest.
Well enough crabbing… I see that CityWest and Council are finally going to hold the annual meeting of the corporation in December and the public are able to attend… presumably to hear from Herbie what a great future we will have with CityWest leading the way through the 20th century… since we are obviously destined to be stuck there with the current crowd at City Hall.
Is there any interest from the crowd at HTMF to attend the annual meeting?
