Terrible download/upload speed


Task Manager 4_26_2020 6_37_35 PM.pngTHis is what I'm dealing with daily. Only this computer is connected to the router by WiFi... (too far away for LAN cable connection... installer wouldn't run another cable to where my computer is.) There are no other devices connected at all. I still have about 15gb of on peak hours left. This is nothing short of dial-up.

File downloads, like anything else, are susceptible to many things.  The server's reaction to congestion, which is very likely occurring, the status of the providers along the route, the server itself, etc.  


How is your service speed when running a speed test at and using the manual 25MB download test size?  


Please also keep in mind that the system is under incredible load right now.  Many times more than normal.  As well, there is a prioritization policy in effect to help work and schooling related activities.

PLM, please open your own ticket by going to Tech Support and clicking on Start a topic.  You'll get higher visibility and you won't be piggybacking on someone else's ticket. 


Also, you may want to provide a bit more detail.  Is your issue about your phone service?  What prompted you to run a tracert?

bad speed every day but today on top of that our calls in are ringing once or twice then getting kicked to voicemail. And our calls out are getting disconnected after one or two rings, if someone does answer we are promptly disconnected.

Email support says:

When I click on the link it gives me a blank page after spinning for 5 minutes, which prompted me to do a tracert.

So I just tried it agian and now it just forwards me to


I emailed this person back and told them I can't call, they replied with the same message above.

Also, we have only enough cell service out here to send text messages, so it wouldn't help to forward our calls to a cell phone.

PLM, unfortunately, this site is for residential accounts only, not business. 

You should also not piggyback on someone else's ticket.
