  1. Blunted, ever since my internet went down after a thunder/windstorm, my speeds have gotten better. My guess is they repaired an existing problem when they repaired the damage. Of course, before that it was all MY problem! Typical! :::..

Um, what's up with the time out at hop 7. Is that a problem? And how would I be the cause of that? BTW, I tried again, same problem at hop 7!
  3. I live in West Milford, New Jersey (Near Orange County, New York, Jersey Bear country!). The only other option I have is DirecWay (I used to have DirecPC, still have the LAN and dish!) What a mess that was!
  4. Kind of doubt they'll offer 15/2 here soon, considering their problem with peak capacity. Can you imagine them claiming you can achieve 15/2 here, when they are close to 56K at peak? And it's not like they have to worry about Verizon competition anytime soon up here in the boonies, they can just say "be grateful for what we choose to give you"!
  5. I'll tweak it some more, and I'm very paranoid about security, everything's patched, I run about 5 different antispyware and antivirus programs, have both hardware and software firewalls. Re: what I mean about speed problems, I was getting nearly 56k speeds at 8 PM, here's what I get at 12:45 AM: First try Connection is:: 7474 Kbps about 7.5 Mbps (tested with 12160 kB) Download Speed is:: 912 kB/s Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server2) Test Time:: Tue Jan 03 2006 00:44:09 GMT-0500 (Eastern Standard Time) Bottom Line:: 133X faster than 56K 1MB download in 1.12 sec Diagnosis: Looks Great : 12.54 % faster than the average for host (optonline.net) Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-0WF2ZHSQL Second try :::..

It'll get even faster if I try it at 3 am! Note that I live in a condo community with tons of kids, probably online gaming and downloading vids and music. I bet it's a real test of a system's peak capacity. Still, 56K speeds are not acceptable during the only hours I can use it! O.K., going to bed, but here's the speed at 1:30 AM: :::..

  6. At least I don't feel all alone with my speed problems! WAY oversold where I am, I don't think boost is coming my way soon!
  7. In reply to the question of getting advertised speeds, I don't come close during peak hours! The only time I get the advertised speeds is after midnight or during the day, when people are in bed or at work/school. At 3 AM my speed is awesome! Too bad I can't afford to be up then! I can't imagine they will be offering Boost where I am anytime soon, as they seem unable to provide regular service here! P.S. The Optimum Online Tech I called about this went routing around in my computer, found my settings were fine, then suggested I switch to my USB connection instead of my network card. Which would mean reinstalling the software. I asked him "if it's my problem, and not Optimum Online's, why does the problem go away at midnight?" He shut up and went away, fortunately!
