spudler_t Posted June 10, 2019 CID Report Share Posted June 10, 2019 So of course these clowns want you to use their own servers to test your speed, I guess they assume if they have good speed to the local town but then have crap everywhere else that is ok? My bi complaint is I started running iRacing ( for those going??) It is a racing simulation ( not a game like Mario Cart or Gran Turismo it uses real telemetry , laser scanned tracks etc. but lately ( I started running in january 2019) i have been noticing I blink a bit (due to higher Ping Rate/Latency) It seems to have gotten worse last say 2 weeks, I went to test my speed and I seem great to LA, SF but when I do NY (The Servers are in MA) I find way messed up speed and variations of anywhere from 80%to 144%. Now would this be a Xfinity issue they need to look into or is it actually not a Xfinity issue but just way internet is going now days? ANd to be honest from the monthly usage info I get from Xfinity I am not using much more Data then in 2018, of my 1024 Gig level they show I went from 10% monthly to 20% but also have a grandson who loves watching animals on youtube ( which BTW cannot be my issue as he is not here when these slow downs have been documented) I am already quite frustrated with the Monopoly Xfinity has as I can not get any other internet service that would be above 20 Mbps in my location and xfinity has increased my bill by about 25% , actually each month is seems it is $1-3 higher. They claim unless I want to get a security system of theirs I have no other option for any of the packages they have and to top that off I get the 200/12 Mbps internet which was supposed to increase to 400/20 for triple play packages but since mine was setup in like 2012 or so I am not included in the speed increase. i just think they need to look into this , I can see each players ping and I always seem to be in the 133 up sections where a lot of them are in the 60s etc. Even people in my NW area seem to have lower pings at least some.
