Did the online Fios help chat.

I've allegedly upgraded to contract free 400/400 for $5 a month less than I was paying for the 100/100 service.

Just waiting for the order confirmation e-mail.
thats unusual. In the normal case the rule is to never ever talk to them

the CSRs generally always always give you a way worse deal than the website does

They tried to up sell me to the gig service. But even that only once.

I said I wanted the 400 because it fit my budget and that was that.

I also specified that I saw the price and speed on the site.

Finally got the email, so it went through.

new fios is nice. Radarr dropped a couple of 4k remux downloads into queue last night and i happened to glance at the speed and it was doing a solid 37 MB/s.

20 minutes for a ridiculously sized movie (48 gigs)

So AMD is coming out with some new E-Peen powered card soon that will be better than Nvidias stuff?

Trying to figure out what I should blow some birfday money on next month.

Maybe a full gaming rig upgrade.
you really need it? My 1070 runs everything great at 1440p, and a bunch of stuff at 4k

Apparently the 5700XT driver situation is garbage right now. Black screens / lockups. Co-worker has the card and has been bitching about it for days.
