Thank you kindly for the advice. I do tend to notice changes in speed during certain times of the day/night. For instance, I can fly through cyberspace at 2 a.m. and only get a fraction of that speed at 10 a.m. I'm on their "preferred" package deal...12mb max, but in the early hours of the morning or when traffic is slower I often see speeds over 30mb. Guess I can't complain for what I get with the middle of the road connection option.
My Cox Broadband connections seem to be somewhat erratic at times. Sometimes they clock super fast and even when test results are high, my general surfing and page loads seem markedly slow by comparison. Does anyone else experience this behavior with Cox? See current results below:
