A few new toys being updated?

Whaddya think?

I have no doubt that, had I tested at about 2:05AM, the speed would have been even lower than that.  Smiley Tongue 

 

All those gaming consoles, desktops, laptops, tablets, phones, smart devices and every other gadget you can think of.  All hungry for those ones and zeros.

I just tested here (7-ish a.m.) and got 972 kbps (or approximately 18x dialup).  Interestingly, I streamed a 25 minute episode on Hulu and it worked very well.

For sure all the kids on Christmas break with all their new toys. Things probably won't be back to normal until after New Year.

I did score this just now. Probably they aren't awake yet from their tech hangover.

Not too bad right now, considering it's 7:30PM.

I was able to play a Youtube vid in 480p without issue.  I was going to try an HD vid with the VDS off, but the VDS control is missing for me again.  Smiley Sad

That's a pretty decent speed for the time of day and year, @GabeU. From what I can tell in my case at least, I can stream fine even at low speeds (earlier today it was 2.6, now it's going up again), as long as traffic on the beam is light.

Like clockwork. People have already started the "where's my data" posts...

I simply can't handle it anymore so I don't reply to those posts and I'm a happier person for it. Smiley Very Happy

"Where's my data?" 

Florida.  Data, like geese, migrate south for the winter.
