1.1 down!! What gives?

Recommended Posts

My speed has been all over the planet the last few weeks!  Anyone else having issues with Comcast lately? I did get a 7.1 download speed last week but the last two days its been between .7 and 4.6. I have a 6.0 cap and was running an average of 5.0 to 6.3 for months. I did a line quality check and it shows that I am good. I have deliberatly used Windows default settings for these tests/ no cablenut settings used. http://www.dslreports.com/quality/nil/2004218 http://www.broadbandreports.com/tweakr/block:3d993b4?service=cable&speed=6000&os=winXP&via=normal

i have the same problem except that im paying for the 8mb and this is what im getting... Comcast sucks ass, i've had it for almost a year now, and my speed has been crap for the past 7 months.... Also when im playing any PC game it spikes like crazy.. I dont have anymore options here in my area except for DSL, but DSL sucks balls. I think im going back to Dial Up, I was happy with my 10kb download and paying less.

This has been happening for 2 hours yesterday... and all night long today. My TV was on most of the time, then started to drop out also slowly. I'm not sure what they are doing but I better call them up. I've been having problems like my modem timing out for a while now.... but this is insane now.... I can barely load a webpage.... I'd take my 8Mbit connection that sometimes drops out... rather than something slower then 56kbit, that can't stay connected to anything.

But as you can see.. only 0.7 Mbps.

At least I can browse a webpage... even load google results now... Last night.. my connection was too slow for google.

Problem found, I hope.  The line to the house is bad, but I'm told I will see a BIG difference and TV reception will be better as well.  And I thought I needed new glasses.  :haha:  The outside line is at least 18 years old, so it makes some sense. Time will tell, but with the tests I have already done, there will be something to compare it too.
