    Upload speed drops during 'evening' hours

    One cause could be that those people at work are mostly not on your Mediacom so the bandwidth load at Mediacom is much more severe after they get home from work. You could ask them to switch you to a different path in their equipment. And ask them if they have a bandwidth pinchpoint in your local area. Gathering the test data is good to have on hand when talking to them. Be patient but persistent with them.

    Please explain?

    I’m still not sure what numbers you’re looking at. Where do you see them?

    Please explain?

    What page are you on where you see those numbers like 61/29/11?

    Stuttering and cpu usage

    Interesting. I certainly would never have thought of that to fix a stuttering PC. Isn’t it amazing how software which in theory can never execute but one way over and over fails to do that so often.

    My wife and I watched the movie A River Runs Through It again the other day. Montana sure is beautiful.

    Stuttering and cpu usage

    I’ve got one work PC at home that uses gobs of CPU%. It’s a Win7 Machine. I believe a significant portion of the issue was caused by one (or more) of the Windows updates last October - December. In my particular case, I hadn’t used the PC in a few months, so when I fired it up, there were a dozen or so SW (Windows and Office) updates that were “waiting to install” and the windows update services we’re eating up over 50%. The machine was consistently running between 75% and 100%. When I’d move the mouse or drag a window, it would flatline at 100%. Out IT guy helped the installation process by “focusing my computer on the install process”. Not sure what he did, but I believe he ended some processes in Task Manager. Not sure which ones. i went online and found quite a few discussions about high CPU usage people were having after the 4th quarter Windows and Office updates. Found another article that said a corrupted mouse driver was causing the high CPU usage. Seems there’s a lot of possibilities. Im a Mac user so I can tell you the safe way to go about correcting things. On a Mac, if you boot up in Safe Mode, it clears out issues. Perhaps on a PC it does something similar. my work IT guy said it was probably time to upgrade my 8 yr old Win7 pro laptop to a new one. It’s still running at 25% cpu usage just sitting there doing nothing. My 10 yr old work desktop PC running Win7 pro however sits at 5-10% CPU sitting there doing nothing. Seems like the laptop could be “fixed”.
  10. When you’re watching movies wirelessly, and it’s buffering, are you on your laptop, or a smart TV, or a Roku - what kind of device are you watching on? What type of wireless ESS device are you using: is there a wireless router and a separate modem, or an all-in-one modem/router? How far is it from your laptop to the wireless modem-router? Are there a lot of walls between your viewing device and the wireless point?

    cleaning a pc with air compressor

    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/266135-31-cleaning-computer-compressor just don’t let any small wires or ribbon cables vibrate or move around while you’re blowing it out. It’ll fatigue the wires/cables and potentially crack them where they’re attached to something that’s fixed in place. you can use a small soft bristled paint brush to dust with to loosen up the dust before you blow it out.

    What speed plan are you on for down/up ?

    Is my Internet speed accurate?

    Amazing they’re actually really helpful. Are they in an alternate universe?

    slow uploadspeed

    What does your provider say the max upload speed should be. What do they advertise as their upload speed for the plan that you’re on?

    400+ everywhere else but >10 here. HELP!

    That sure helped a lot. I only have a 200/10 Mbps plan, so I don’t know what things make a system reach significantly above what you’re getting now. Your recent plots look a lot like what I see with my system using Spectrum (Time Warner).

    400+ everywhere else but >10 here. HELP!

    What’s your plan download max advertised as? i noticed on Nov 18, four of your tests were close to 200, and the rest very low. We’re all the tests taken on the same machine? Are you testing via wireless or Ethernet. If wireless, see if things behave the same using Ethernet if you can

    ADSL vs WiFi speed

    How far are you from the TestMy test server compared to where the Speedtest server is from you?

    Upload Speed from test

    I’m not sure their answer “too bad, the only thing they can do is to lower my plan to 5Mbps so I will pay less.“ is even true. The fact that they are measuring only 1 Mbps from their end says there’s something terribly wrong. I would be persistent with them. Ask them if they can elevate the problem to a supervisor. Tell them you’re willing to pay the full price for their service if they can deliver what they sold you. It’s frustrating, but persistence with patience may work. If you call enough times, they may actually do something about it. It sounds from that answer they gave you that a person of low technical capability is answering your calls so be persistent about elevating the issue. if there are other people in your area with the same service and plan, see if you can find out how theirs is working. If theirs has the same problem, then it’s a widespread problem they have. If theirs is faster and more consistent, then the issue would obviously be more localized. The ISP should be able to check other customer speeds in the area, and inform you what they found. Not sure I’d trust an answer from the first tier customer support people though since they told you 0.5 to 1 is all they can deliver on a 10 Mbps plan. I’d try to propose to a supervisor that they repeat connection tests to other customers. You checking independently if possible would be the best way.

    Upload Speed from test

    I don’t see the 86.8 Mbps number in your results. And yes, the huge variation is pretty bad. You might call them and get them to at least make it more consistent.

    Dropped tests

    @CA3LE maybe you can answer this one

    Very big difference between testmynet vs speedtest

    The 6 MB/sec is megabytes per second. The roughly 48 Mbps from TestMy and Speedtest is megabits per second. There are 8 bits per byte, so the 6 MB/sec is the same as 48 Mbps. I notice that your test results in Results over the past week has quite a few points between 40 and 50 Mbps, with a few points here and there between 10 and 25. Pretty big variation but not uncommon on the internet these days.

    Internet Speeds

    220 is about as high as I’ve ever seen on our Spectrum 200/10 Plan.So it looks like you’re there.

    World results

    @CA3LE Just a heads up - if you do some work on the Database. There’s some glitches in the world results full listing behavior. if you select “Download Speed” to sort,, page 1 comes up sorted. If you go to page 2, it’s no longer sorted by download speed. If you choose to sort on download speed on page 2, it jumps back to page 1. Also, it looks like you should be able to sort on increasing download speed by selecting download, but it won’t change from the increasing.dorection. i checked the beta version, it’s different - doesn’t have the tabs, but the sorting has the same issue
