Has any one been upgraded?

Recommended Posts

Seen all the hype and advertisements on home page last week. For another $9.95 a month.... NAH!!!  I don't think so. I've had Optimum Online/ Cablevision since it was first offered years ago and every time something is wrong with computer, TV or phone they say the problem is in my area (Northwestern Connecticut). So I'm not wasting anymore cash on something that they are apparently not gonna fix. My speeds are rarely what they advertise they are supposed to be. But are still faster than dial-up. :angry3:

At least I don't feel all alone with my speed problems!  WAY oversold where I am, I don't think boost is coming my way soon! :(

Wow my download speed suck and my upload is the worst and when I called optimum they said they "Capped" it from the network because it is a shared network. They said something about "Throttle" but wasnt paying attention. So my speed drops when they cap it but it I call 4 more times they will send the case to a security team and then from there they will decide wether or not to terminate my service. Since I am always uploading they said they had to cap it, So Blunted is verylucky to have those speeds

Apparently they have begun working in howell  (07731). My speeds have been changed when I got home from work this evening. My upload is now around 1.5 mbps from 920 kbps, but my download seems much more unstable around 8 mbps which has gone down from the usual 9.3 mbps.

Also from reading some of the other posts about OOL, my IP address from the modem has not been changed. My signal page from my modem has shown that my power levels have increased (which have caused my download speed to drop when the db's are too high) and my ranging service number for the upload appears to have changed. Plus there were several Optimum trucks just outside my neighborhood for most of the day today.
