  1. Frontier, after complaining repeatedly bumped me to 6M DS and 766K US. This is what I'm actually getting though. $50/month. Only game in town, hopefully Comcast will be here in a year or so, they have some HUGE packages right down the road for the same price, I can't wait.
  2. Had a tech from Texas come out with the local tech today and they put a new filter on the front of the house and a new modem on me and the guy from Texas checked it with his old dell laptop and it was there, so he told me to flush my DNS. Well I did this and nothing, still 318... so I went to speedguide.net and analyzed the connection and downloaded the latest driver for my ethernet adapter(nvidia.com), which is onboard nvidia gigabit. I started looking and all kinds of strange setting in the nvidia software were enabled and I was like.. wtf, I wont want any of that crap. So I disabled it all and rebooted and wah-lah! Here she is....
  3. Well, he made some calls and still nothing. He said he is out of work right now due to a death in the family, but he would be back soon and would see what else he could do. Everyone say a prayer or cross your fingers, whichever you prefer... or both for good measure. For his family and for mah uploadz.
  4. OK, I'll let it go the rest of the weekend and call the local tech back monday. I called him today but he said he was covered up in stuff and told me to call him back this afternoon and I got busy and forgot, so that'll be good, give it a few days to see if it corrects itself and if not I can give him the call back I owe him.
  5. Wow thats crazy! Apparently they got a really solid server setup and network infrastructure in DC. I know I can stroke my ego ever so slightly by hitting the DC mirror lol.
  6. See my straight up download speed is solid, I get about 5.6M to Dallas, but Frontier's office is in Rochester, NY so I kinda expected DC to be a little better and it is.... Like I said though, throw in some acks and this flies all to pieces. I'm putting my money on that local tech, if he needs me to make a trouble ticket I'll just call tech support and pretend to go through the Rolodex until they finally put in a ticket for me.
  7. I got the local tech's cell phone number, I'm gonna call him and tell him that they raised my provision and see what he says about it. I called tech support and they just wanted to run me through the Rolodex which I have done 40 times and can quote to them faster than they can flip cards. They raised me to a level 2 tech and she acted like I was stealing from the company because my area isn't designated for 6M DS, I was like that's not what the FCC told your boss LOL. She had an attitude problem so I tried to keep my cool and get a level 3 tech but it didn't work, she kept going round and round with me and then changed the subject and tried to sell me dish network! I was like wtfrack? Where did TV come from here? I want my BANDWIDTH NAO!!!!!!!! RAWR!!!!!
  8. I was provisioned at 768K upload 2 days ago, power cycled my modem about 40 times, tried leaving it unplugged for a fairly extended period of time and still nothing. My problem is when I run the upload speed test on the site here and on others it shows 300K and my provision on my modem is showing 766K... I just don't get it, why would the provision say one thing and then do another? I run all these test hooked straight into the modem with no wireless on, I'm the only user on the line and it still shows 300K (multiple speed test sites, including here and ISP and others). My SNR is about 20 and solid, my US attenuation is 13, we're running Calix C7's up here for DSLAM'S with PPPoA.... Whats the problem? Am I missing something?
  9. I just got my phone company Frontier to re-provision me to 6M DS and 768K US but I'm still getting my old 320K US. The DS is smoking, like 5.9M but that US is killing my gaming and streaming music when I do them at the same time. Stupid acks. What would override the provisioning? In my modem stats it shows the 766K US provision but I'm just not getting it on the speed tests and that's coming from both testmy.net sites and the frontier speedtests. I'm stumped. Maybe a DSLAM code that has everyone on the card limited?
  10. its hard to say, but I know that Frontier is in the swing as we speak of cranking stuff up and getting bugs worked out so be patient and look at this page http://www.frontieronline.com/customerservice/ there are direct Emails of the people that control your area just pick the person that fits you best and send them an email, if they cant fix the problem they will forward your email to the right person and something will be done or at least thats what happened with me. Good group of guys and gals running the southeast area down here.

  12. Im a frontiernet user, I pay $50 a month for a 3 meg DSL line that was 1 meg up until like a month ago. I guess all the calling and emailing got their attention, about time is all i can say They're the only broadband we got so it them or nothing.
  13. In my area 1 meg is the fastest they offer. Sooo..... I'm just gonna sit back and keep my mouth shut.
