Yep you're right.
Watching a You-tube Motion Picture HD(720 or 1080) video will not be fluid.

i get 15-20 mbps according to speedtest.net, depending on the time of day. 1.5 is pretty slow, hell i think my phone may be faster then that.

1.5 mbps is actually 150kbps download speed, that means if you are downloading something that is 1 mb.

It would take you almost 10secs instead of instantaneous.

If you are downloading something that is 10mb.
Would take you 2 mins rather than 10 seconds.

Its fast for browsing.
But not for watching HD (720/1080) videos on YT or downloading huge files. (GB files)

1500 kbps actually and I doubt it'll reach that. That's the maximum speed.

Could definitely go over. My "max" is 15 but it almost always is running above that, sometimes by a lot.

I called about it and it wont be coming to my area for probably another year... . your speed should be good enough to do most things and more important than that POST ON ISH... which is really all that matters..
Yeah, I have Fios because of where I live and people who live 5 minutes away are complaining they don't have it and have been promised it for like 2 years.

Well that's really unusual. It's probably a mistake on your ISP's end. They're supposed to cap it at the max.

If you actually monitor your speeds you might find the same thing. I have had this at the ISP's in 3 different states; it's not that uncommon.

It's common for DSL users to get capped off at the advertised speed. All Cable or Fios users usually go over the advertised speed. My package is 15/2 but I usually get 20/2.
