  1. It may also have to do with available fiber links. Sometimes they trade franchises in order to be able to service an area better. For instance, if a Time Warner town is surrounded by Comcast towns, you best forget about upgrading that town because it would require a new overbuild to get the new fiber to it. I'm sure a cooperation wouldn't happen. So the trade happens and the upgrade for both systems is cheaper. I have seen it happen alot.
  2. thanks again. I just found it odd. Plus, at first I was going crazy tweaking things and doing this doing that. Nothing would work, then I opened Firefox. I was like Whaaaat? Just thought I'd throw it out there and see if anyone else sees this much.
  3. Actually I just ran the tests again. IE on 2 PCs......4.7M FF on 2 PCs.....6.2M IE cookies,files, and history all deleted same on FF. Both PCs using VanBurens CableTweaks V8
  4. Consider the following, any and all help is aprreciated in advance. I have a small network. On one PC I use IE to test my speed. I get 4.4M, I then use Firefox to test my speed again on the same PC, and I get 6.4M. Ok why is this happening? I have another PC on the same network and when I test with IE and FF I get 6.6M.
  5. Hey all. I know for a fact that Comcast is trying to eliminate "noise" from their networks. I'm talking 'Ingress'. Loose connectors, dry,cracked coax (exposed shield), water damaged coax, coax not properly grounded. This problem exists EVERYWHERE in the system(since the networks are up to 20 years old). If you understand broadband and frequency and spectrum, all those conditions allow 'Ingress or noise' into the system. There is somewhat a tolerance for this bad signal, but in order to speed up the network these bad noise levels must be lowered. So get new wires, tighten all connectors, a
  6. It most likely be a "drop-in" system upgrade, comprising of a bandwith upgrade (possibly 860MHz) and node size reduction. This is done by simply changing the amplifiers out on the pole and in underground pedestals. Not to much resplicing.
