    If you are getting your news from the Hollywood media, then I can understand your confusion. 
  is my first check for internet news, as he posts many links to various news stories that you can read and make your own opinion.

    My past experience with AT&T is that I will never use them again for internet and happy so far with my cable provider.  However, that is not the answer you are looking for....  Its possible they have added new customers and you may have a long copper wire loop degrading your service.  That is what happened to me a few years ago.  After numerous complaints, a smart tech finally found the wire loop (which added over a mile of wire) and cut it and spliced it to a much shorter path to the D-Slam, which was only 100 ft. from my house,  thereby resolving my issues.
    Good luck.

    Have to disagree.  The SA-11 is a mach 3 missile (>2000 mph) using radar homing with a range of 17 miles and could easily bring down a passenger plane flying at 33,000 ft.  Depending where the plane was hit, it could have remained largely intact till impact with the ground.

    I hate it when I go to a site and a video starts playing and I can't shut it off....grrrr.   So most of the time I run with Flash disabled.  Only if there is a video I want to see, do I enable it in the add-ons manager and then reload the page.

    Wow, my last post was in Feb....LOL.   Ca3le must be in Colo  eating brownies !!
    No, as I stated in a post above, all is good now after I did the reset of IE 11.  Getting around 1.5 Mb/s up and around 40 Mb/s down, except during peak evening hours it slows.
  6. HubCity added a post in a topic Is satellite internet that bad a choice when all you have is bad choices?   

    Just some brief experience with DSL some years ago.  I had a DSLAM about 100 feet from my house, yet my speeds were around 1 Mb/s (was a 5 Mb/s service).  After constant complaining, one of the techs finally realized I was on a phone loop that added over a mile of copper wire to my line.  He cut it at the connection box behind my house, did some splicing, and my speeds increased to an average of 3-5 Mb/s.
    Have your tech check for a long wire loop that may be degrading your service.
    As for satellite service, my son has it and my grandson is always complaining about lag when he is gaming online.

    "Your symptoms wreak of malware."
    No, they reek of Suddenlink problems, had them many times before.  Fact is, I've never had any virus/malware since I first started using computers in 1979.  I keep my machines squeaky clean.
    I already have S/B Search & Destroy and keep my host file definitions up to date weekly, sometime I manually edit them.
    I also run a virus scan weekly and keep off the malicious web sites, you know which ones I mean....
    Just did a download test and I'm back up to normal, around 40 Mb/s.
    But thinks for your concern.

    Yes, the last few tests were run booting into Win 7.  All seems to be okay now, don't know what caused the problem, but the IE reset seemed to fix it.
    Edit:  Just ran up/down tests and upload is okay, download was in the toilet.  Was getting around 2 Mb/s to Dallas about 200 miles from me.  Changed it to east coast and got around 20 Mb/s.  Dang, hope I don't start having problems with Suddenlink again, it been running great for months.

    I clicked on the icon on the top left of the reply window, BBcode Mode ?? and then I was allowed to paste. Not sure why it would not work otherwise.

    Okay, I went to my IE advanced setting and hit "reset", rebooted the computer and now I can do the upload test okay.  Don't know what was causing it as I have not changed anything default setting since I put Win 7 on this computer.
    However, I still cannot copy and paste into this reply window.  I clicked on paste and said yes to allow editor to access my clipboard, but still won't paste.  Any suggestions ?
    Edit:  Just for grins, I went to another forum that I am a member of and had no problem pasting the tracert into a reply window there.  So I'm lost as to why its not working here.
  11. HubCity added a post in a topic Upload test page hangs   

    Ran a traceroute from command window as you suggested and it ran okay.
    I have tried every way possible to paste the results into this reply window to no avail.  I can copy the test file I created from the tracert but no way will it paste into this reply window.  If you know the secret let me know.

    Upload test page hangs
    Ok, what am I doing wrong if anything.  The download test works fine.  However, when I try the upload test, it hangs on the screen saying it is downloading the test data.  The window never goes away and the test never starts
    Running Window 7 with IE11.
    Edit Note:  Booted Win XP and both upload and download work fine.

  13. HubCity added an answer to a question Windows 7 speed tests slow compared to Windows XP   

    As you know, I recently set up a dual boot WinXP and Winows 7 system.  Today running Windows 7, I noticed some strange artifacts when I scrolled the screen after doing a speed test.  For example the little blinking square boxes on the speed bar would move as I scrolled down the page.  So, just the heck of it, I added to the compatibility view list and ran another speed test.
    With added to the compatibility view list, the speed today was giving me again around 40 Mb/s like Windows XP does.  Prior to adding it to the compatibility view list, I was only getting around 30 Mb/s as noted in my earlier posts.
    Since I did a new install of Windows 7, M/S installed IE 11 to my computer.  My WinXP of course runs IE 8.
    Something strange going on here with IE 11.

    I'll be looking forward to your TCP tuning inputs.
