fios speeds

Recommended Posts

I just had fios installed in my house & i am only getting 10/1 down and up, I should be getting 15/2. Any suggestions?

I noticed this when the installer was there but on the speed test he ran through Verizons test i was getting 17/2.

I saw a post about having mcafee. Will that slow my speeds down?

Mcafee was slowing down me speed, I took it off & here are my speeds.

Have you tried turning off mcafee and testing?  I've seen several posts here about slow downs caused by mcafee.  I use PC-Cillin and have no problems.  I was, however, only getting 1.7MB up stream until I downloaded and used Cablenuts.  If you download this (free) I'll give you the settings that I used.  Perhaps that would help you on the upside, though probably no that much.

I am also getting way lower uploads on my 15/2 Fios, I have never been able to get above 900k upstream. TMS

I am now posting my speeds with the upgraded to the 30/5 package and it still is crap. I can often average about 25mbps down but I have never achieved greater than 1.20mbps upstream which is pretty bad to be representative of what is supposed to be 5 mbps up. With the 15/2 package I could get about 14 mbps down but never more than 0.8 mbps upstream, again pitiful.

I don't have to test the upload it will be no higher than 1.2 mbps I also have the brighthouse roadrunner service as well with the 10 mbps package 10/1 and on that package I am able to get 9.5 mbps down and 8-850 kilobits up, this is fairley close to the 10/1, closer than the fiber. You can get a 15/2 package with RR too if you subscribe to their digital phone service. I can't justify 179.00 for the 30/5, and you have to sign up for a one year commitment for that. If I could consitantly get within 8-10 % at least of the rated I would consider it, but I don't have close.

I am in Land O Lakes, which is in Pasco county about 10-15 mile north of Tampa proper.

Here is the Cablenut file I am using...

So far it has given me the best results...

Try it out..

EDITED-

I screwed around with my settings a bit..here is what I got...

I don't think the upload is always that accurate..Most sites have my upload

at a constant 4,500Kbps, and I have read as high as 4.6mb here...Dunno...

Anyway the most recents settings seem to benefit the download..still messing with the upload setting..****edited****  Seems I found a good setting for the upload...

This is with the Fios30-5new file...
