Post your speed and how much you pay monthly

Recommended Posts

Thanx for your answer to my post, sorry you didn't realize an increase in speed.  

I just rechecked my speeds and it's Download :: 63.9 Mbps 8 MB/s   Upload :: 5.7 Mbps 713 kB/s so I stand corrected claiming 66.9/5.6 consistently.

 

You're definitely right when you said speed & pricing varying by location, and it sounds like you are pretty rural (not all bad living in beautiful VT).

I'm beginning to think that the few companies that offer internet plans are all a little bit shady and will do or promise almost anything for our dollars.

The biggest by far . . . being Comcast!!!

I moved here eight years ago from CT.  At the time, the only option besides dial-up was a very expensive, not so great satellite.  People would often ask me if I missed CT, to which I would reply that the only thing I missed was my internet.  Everything comes with a trade-off.

 

I have read a lot of bad reviews about Comcast, so I think for now I will stick with what I have until something better comes along.  Videos can be choppy, as they sometimes try to play faster than they can download, but otherwise it is mostly adequate for what I need.

I am a novice.  Not a novice to poor treatment by ISP's.

I pay for 50 mbps.  The price is around $40.  Occasionally I get 14mbps, but usually I get 10 and under.

Is that anywhere near the speed I should get ?

If your ISP is advertising 50 mbps, you should get at least that speed in today's arena. Back when we were using dial up and older cable systems, speeds were not a guarantee but that was back in the late 1990's and early 2000 years.  Now, with newer cable/fiber networks, fiber only and better technology in modems, channel bonding and other improvements, most ISP's should be able to provide the speeds the user subscribe to.  

You need to post your test results and inform us which ISP you have.  Also, it makes a difference if you are testing your speed with a cell phone, laptop or desktop computer.  Not all laptops and cell phones can reach the maximum connection speed like a desktop computer will.  If you only get 20% of your advertised speed, you have an issue with your ISP and/or equipment.  The best solution for remedy is to get the ISP technician out to your location as they are the ones who get things fixed and cut through all the scripts the 800 # folks are told to use depending on what words you use when asking for support.  Sometimes, you have to make up something to tell them to get the technician out there otherwise you will get no place. Use some logic if going with that idea such as, "I see a chewed cable/wire going to the house" or similar but as long as you suggest something to them that is on their side of the modem or they will tell you it's your problem. Sometimes it is your problem so find someone if you don't have the know how to check your connections.  BTW, when testing you must always use a wired connection to be fair to the results.  Wireless is not consistent and not a great tool for testing.

It looks like you’re averaging about 14 Mbps, and using the Dallas Test server. How far from Dallas are you?

I am in Atlanta. I have had four or five techs out. One had a tester and read 45.  Techs on the phone make adjustments, change channels, and I get 35 to 40.  A day or two later I am back to 14 or lower.  I will check with a line.  But if it is better, I will have to move my laptop tp that room ?

Try the Miami Test server and see if you get similar results. And yeah, check with an Ethernet cable.
