I have to add this for @MarkJFine: I want to stream and I can't! Waaaaah! I want my MTV!  LOL

Also possible that bandwidth has been allocated specifically to help with hurricane ops.

Very likely, and I'm glad they can do that. It's started to slow down now --- get off my beam, people! Smiley Wink

All's well on the left coast! I live in eastern WA, so east of the Cascade Mountain Range. I'm thankful to be in a location with little to no natural disaster concerns. No danger of tsunamis, hurricanes, tornadoes, and only a remote possibility of earthquakes or volcanoes 🌋. No real flooding concerns. The only real danger out here is (human caused) fire 🔥. Don't think I've ever experienced a weather related slowdown.

On another note, my daughter and I tried the other day to remember when was the last time we turned on the TV. We couldn't do it. It's been months. So Monday we're calling Centurylink and saving $50 per month!

We also hardly ever stream video, which is probably why we end every month in the green, lol! Joy watches a 2-3 minute clip of Stephen Colbert maybe three times a week. I do stream TV shows on Amazon, but I have chronic insomnia, so 95% of it is during bonus time. Of course I use the lowest possible resolution setting, which makes no difference when watching on an iPhone, haha! Whipped through all ten seasons of Stargate SG-1 recently, didn't even burn up my bonus bytes! We usually just check out dvds from the local library. They can get just about any movie we want to watch. Old fashioned, but doesn't cost a penny or a byte!

Good for you, Debbie, for getting rid of your TV.  I cut the cord 4 years ago and I'm glad I did (though others in my household still watch TV).   I can still watch news online if I choose to, and other things as well, but the TV is history for me.   I watch DVDs when I have time too.

Speed has slowed down again this afternoon.  Not sure if this is congestion -- the hurricane is raging all day long, but the speed is fine in the morning, so maybe it's congestion after all.

@maratsade  Same here. All I ever watched was the news. I can read all the news I want for free on the internet, and I watch Meet the Press most Sunday mornings on my phone, just the segments I'm interested in. Joy likes to watch the Seahawks, but we can live stream a game a week without going in FAP because we don't stream anything else during normal hours.
