Low download speeds

When we first got this it worked really well. Now it takes forever just to download an App. We can’t even stream much anymore.

Are the slow speeds fairly recent?  Are you sure you're not presently out of data?  Do you have speed issues with any other activities or is it mostly with downloading things?  


Edit:  Also, if you're presently using WiFi, do you have a device with which you can connect via Ethernet cable to see if you have better speeds?  Sometimes the WiFi itself can become an issue.

Hi arafel, welcome to the community and thanks for posting! I'm currently trying to run diagnostics, but running into some errors on my end. I'd like for you to go to your System Control Center and tell me if the page loads successfully. This will help me determine if these errors I'm experiencing are from my tools or part of an underlying cause with your service.
