My speed test are all over the place. I feel there is a issue with beam 34. I am and at least one other person have posted about this issue. I want the speed I have documented back by my speed test back.
The Internet is very busy due to the RNC Convention and other news. But just like a gall stone this too will pass. I spent 3 hours streaming the Convention online last night and will most likely do the same this evening. That will slow things down a bit due to traffic.
Hi, Liz, Yes they were directly connected to the modem. I have been noticing a slowdown for weeks now. I thought it may work itself out. However when I saw the other person on my beam was having speed issues as well I decided to investigate further. I have not made any system changes.
I'm still betting it is the kiddies being out of school, especially since you say slowing down for weeks now. If your beam/gateway is near peak on loading then any increased activity is going to slow things down. So IMO, if on a beam with lots of families with kids then things will slow down during summer months and will see the large variations you're having depending what the little buggers are doing and when.
The engineer informed me that there was work done this past weekend to improve performance, but a followup is scheduled around the 25th to help provide more consistency. Let's keep an eye on how your speeds are after the 25th.

I just saw this post and went to do the tests on my machine. The first test said DL was 6.4 Mbps and UL was 729 Kbps, 2nd test DL was 4.8 Mbps and UL was 475 Kbps, last one I did said DL was 2.4 Mbps abd UL was 1.1 Mbps..
