Bluecurve internet or basic ?

I have Bluecurve internet got it increased from 300 to 600 to see if it makes a difference though maybe in a month I'll go back down to 300 as maybe that's all I need....my main question is what is the main differences between Bluecurve internet & the basic? I did have basic before I went to Bluecurve....also I'm on a 2 year value plan with my Bluecurve internet (not my cable tv as that is month to month).......if I find that Bluecurve internet is not for me & makes not much difference (plus I'm.saving money as well) , can I go back to basic internet & stay in my 2 year value plan with being charged for it? Or am I stuck with Bluecurve internet (I have no intention of canceling then having to pay the fee to buy out my plan) .......as I see just wondering if Bluecurve internet is any better than basic internet....I don't think I've really noticed a difference since I went to Bluecurve internet

Compare your actual Internet speed to driving your vehicl...

Compare your actual Internet speed to driving your vehicle from your residence, through city streets, onto a highway to your parent's residence in a suburb of a different city.  Part of your trip will be at "highway speed", but the "first-mile" and "last-mile" will be much slower. If your computer is connecting to a remote server that is not capable of sending at 600 Mbits/second, that creates a "bottle-neck" that you will notice, even if your "last-mile" is sending, in bursts, at 600 Mbits/second (or even 300 Mbits/second).

If you download a file from the Microsoft Download Center, or the latest version of iTunes from Apple's server, or something from www.amazon.ca -- it is likely that you will receive at the speeds that you are paying for. But, if you're viewing web-pages from a government web-site, e.g., www.gov.bc.ca -- your download will be slower.
