I noticed that Cox Gigablast price is the same as Ultimate, but requires a $100 installation, no doubt to run the fiber into your home. Since I rent rooms in homes I'll probably never have that. ...

I haven't run across an example clip which uses an alternative bit rate ladder. If your device can display resolution, watch Season 1, Episode 1 of The 100; the only 1080p encode is at 7500 Kbps. ...

Cox in my area keeps advertising "Gigablast", a gigabit/sec data plan, but thus far it hasn't become available to me. The best that I can get from them right now is 300/30 Mbps with a 2TB cap. ...

Most people don't need much speed outbound. 30 Mbps is quite a bit faster than the average download speed that most Americans get.

Start up RB4 while connected to the network and it will insist upon downloading and applying the update. It's 4GB; you can run other games or apps while you wait but not RB4 until it's done.

The 360 was out in November 2005; it's chatpad launched in September 2007. Apparently they don't think of these things as a priority item. Maybe they didn't sell that many for the 360
