Comcast just upgraded speed for folks in my area free.
You just need to apply for the wireless modem because the old modem is not able to handle the new speeds.
Mine should arrive in a few weeks.
It's usb so I ordered a usb port with 5 slots.
All my usb's are now occupied.
According to them my speed will double at no extra cost.
So I should get 66 Mbs or so with the new free speeds.
Right now I'm paying for 6Mbs/second & am getting 33.
Personally, I believe the data. There's just no way to make the math work for what you describe. Maybe that has something to do with how what you describe appears to be based on a very fundamental and very wrong assumption about how HDDs and computers operate. The average seek time on a HDD is 8ms, which is the time it takes to get the read head over the part of the drive platter with the file you want. After which it immediately starts reading the file into RAM. It'll take more than 8ms just for your request to make it from your computer to the remote system with the page you want. So the early advantage is clearly to the local copy of the file. Even if the remote server has the page in memory it has to package it all up, send it back across the Internet, your computer has to unbundle it and display it on screen. There may be some specific instances where loading a page remotely is faster, but I bet if you did 100 trials with a stopwatch, you'd find that local copies come out the winner probably at least 60% of the time, if not significantly more.
I use it, I like it. So kill me.
I use CCleaner daily, and with a random write. I have an OS partition of 60 GB (25 GB used), and I don't want to see it cluttered up with rubbish that I don't need. The random write might not be necessary since I don't do anything that might require it, but it is a safety feature such that if anything bad does get downloaded then it is wiped. I do use a good AV anyway. It's perhaps a matter of preference, but having used CCleaner for more than a decade, I will not be stopping because someone else has a different point of view. My system runs about the same each day, and I believe that is from CCleaner, possibly it isn't - I don't care either way. There is also the tracking issue from adverts which I also do not want - I don't use Facebook etc. - for the same reason - too intrusive.
Hey mates, Allow me to throw something in here once more
As I stated for myself before, I believe in Ccleaner as a targeting removal system for specific files that are hard to remove yourself, often if you fear messing something up by tinkering in the registry. But in my personal experience, you will not receive faster speeds from using Ccleaner, especially not every day. I say that because in extremely rare cases, and if your computer is a really old model, it may help speed to use it after a very long time (again, based on my own experience with a cluttered clunker on XP, which did not come with many of the tools Windows has today). And I see no harm in removing temp internet files after a long time, to keep things fresh, but it really isn't necessary unless you fear malware, but that is a far fetched notion. Still, nothing inherently wrong with clearing the temp files after a time has passed.
Having said that, there is usually no harm in using the program every day, despite the fact that it will not do anything for you. And like was said by others, the computer will just have to recreate many of the things that were deleted anyway. Which means that it spends time to create them, you do not end up gaining ANY space as everything gets recreated, and YOU spend your own time deleting them every day, which... takes more time away from you than you would gain in the first place. So in reality, it isn't worth it overall for every day use.
Concerning other items that Ccleaner removes:
Now, you can do a lot of the removal stuff from Disk Cleanup, but it may take longer to open than Ccleaner, which I understand would be a legitimate reason to use the program it over the built in stuff... but surely not every day? I work on over 30 computers regularly, and speed has never been gained from removing internet temp files or any of the other stuff. Only space, and most of the time very little of it.
In the car to computer comparison that I've enjoyed thus far, I've got one - you don't clean your car every day do you? It will scratch it and wear down the paint over time. BUT you DO EAT every day, so you have to take that into consideration too. just kidding
I am well aware of what CCleaner does and have looked at all the various options available, and it is the most versatile of the bunch, and free, so why would I not use it. As mentioned, I, and no doubt countless others are happy to use CCleaner. The speed aspect for anything is of secondary importance.
