Re: snails pace

If they asked me what prompted me to start running speed tests, I would say something like: "I started running speed tests because web pages I was trying to access were very sluggish and took a long time to download."

Re: snails pace

I started running speed tests because it has become impossible to reliably stream shows and download large files

Re: snails pace


@GabeU was only referring to the two speed measurements he highlighted: 2.56 Mbps up and 21.69 Mbps down. Those two were normal. 
So ignore the poor download speeds? Again I must be missing something

You are.  

 

Referencing the two speed tests I thought you were referring to, and maratsade explaining that to you, is not ignoring the other tests.  It's referencing the two tests I thought you were referring to.  Nothing more.

Re: snails pace

Good morning randalldb,

 

Thank you for working with the community thus far. On which platforms are you trying to stream?

 

Are you trying to stream in in HD? If so, you should temporarily disable Video Data Saver, as that can cause buffering when trying to force HD. Otherwise, leave your playback option to "auto".

 

When do you normally try to stream? Do you experience issues regardless of the time of day/night?

 

Your cooperation, patience, and understanding are much appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Liz

Re: snails pace

I stream various shows mainly from Netflix, tho I will download on demand directv shows

Speeds slow mostly during the day, to under 1mbps until about 8pm
Thank you
