I live in Cheyenne; Sun Valley area; and just aren't getting the slow downs. Just now; sunday almost noon; and here's my local speed test



Here's my test, 30 seconds later, to New York City.


And because you used Denver as a test, here's mine to denver.


Do I ever see it "Slow Down". Yes. Bresnan definitely isn't perfect. But it's usually in the late afternoon; kids just getting home from school; etc... I will get close to about 10-11mb instead of 15mb.

So, with others in the same town, connecting to the same head end, having 2 totally different speeds, I would say that probably the node in your neighborhood is over subscribed. Either that, or you're on some old copper to the node. Or they aren't running fiber from the node to their head-end (But I believe all of the backhaul in cheyenne from the nodes is fiber; but I could be wrong. Or there's a problem with your modem/router/wiring. But it's obviously not the headend of bresnan getting us on the internet. I am on the same exact system, and have never had the slow down you all speak of.

I'm sure you already mentioned it; but what are your signal levels posted on your modem? I had an issue in my house with TOO MUCH wiring and taps to all the rooms. I would get a 61 on the upstream and a -15 on the downstream. The signal got very flaky at times. Sometimes even go out. I removed a couple taps to rooms of the house that had no tv's connected anyway, and I get a 56 upstream and a -11 for downstream. If I connect ONLY the modem, and no taps to ANY rooms; I get a 51-52 for upstream, and a -2 for download. I use to get drop outs, bad speed/pings, and inconsistent service for about 2 months. Once I tested the modem directly to the incoming line, with no rooms, bridge taps, tv's, or anything connected and found my service went EXCELLENT, I then only hooked up the rooms I had to. Once I've done that; I haven't had a service, speed, ping, disconnect, etc... issue in about 8-10 months.

I have the 8mb tier.12:50pm



Sweet couldnt expect more,until ppl get online around dinner time.

The connection speeds are very close to what's advertised,
during the day!!

It is mostly decent until around 5:30pm mst, after that it really is oversubscribed to the point of bottle-necking,either queuing the incoming and/or outgoing data....I dont know...maybe both.

If i run it off of the main cable line or through the dedicated and filtered line,with or without 4 rooms in the mix,it doesnt matter. I have new lines from the tap(60ft away) to the new house box,to the all new lines throughout the house and it points to Bresna having total control over what is going on.
It ran perfect during the Holiday break,the night of Jan 1 2010 it all went to crap.Coincidence? i think not!!

Imho I think they are throttling the bandwidth.

When the net is slow due to congestion in your area, you won't get any more speed with speedplus so I don't think this is about getting more speedplus subscriptions. It is still running fairly smooth in my area since the worst bit last year, but ping time has been creeping up a little on some nights so the underlying issue clearly has yet to be solved. I have since dropped speedplus as I found that most websites I visit don't send much more than 8-10 megabits tops anyway and the speed bump to 1 megabits on uploads just isn't worth an extra 10 bucks a month.

Nice to have something you can depend on. This has been going on in Buffalo for 4 years.

It's really bad today. And as I have said before, I don't care about the speeds, just give me a freakin low ping!

nothing like working all day to pay the bills which includes the cable internet bill, and 5 nights out of 7 I sit down to play a little WoW and..... whoop, not tonight, network is congested. How can they honestly sell this crap to anyone?

reply to christcorp

christcorp, I almost fainted when I ready your post. For years I've been watching you preach about how DSL is so much superior than cable, and now you are you using cable?? what happened? Here is an example I stumbled on...

"Personally, I'll take the pros of phone/dsl over cable's tv/broadband service any day of the week. The max that qwest can give me; and the majority of their customers in the country; is 1.5mb/896kb. I have access to cable at 8mb, but there is no way I would change. I'll take the lower bandwidth without question. Then again, Directv compared to cable is also a no brainer. Directv is cheaper, better quality, more channels, etc... There is nothing that could get me back on cable unless I was forced to move into an apartment some place that wouldn't allow a directv dish. Again, learn the differences and you'll sleep much better at night. Later... Mike...."

Well, seeing how tonight is a bad night, I called and complained.

Got my internet credited for January and was "assured" that this incident is at their highest level of tech support.

I STRONGLY urge everyone to call and complain about this, then request a credit on your cable bill. This is the ONLY way that they will fix this issue - if it affects their bottom line.

Heck, even threaten to go to DSL.

Springfling; long time no see. Yes, things change. Personally; I still believe that the quality of DSL is far superior to cable. Doesn't matter who the provider is. One thing about DSL, is you will consistently get whatever it is you get. There aren't the slow down periods of the day like in cable.

Why I changed? Numerous reason. 1) When I wrote the post you quoted, 8mb was the highest I could get from cable. Now it's 15mb. 2) Quest still refuses to get my neighborhood more than 1.5mb, even though our Phone Pair-gain is fed with fiber; yet they copper feed the dsl dslam. (I ought to know, I helped install it myself - Remember, I worked for qwest and know a lot about the DSL). 3) Most importantly; my bandwidth requirement took a major jump in the last year. I've completely changed phone to voip; I run numerous servers remotely to california; and I have remote connections that I connect to. I really needed the bandwidth.

But to be honest; I ran the DSL and Cable side-by-side for a couple of months. I've read a lot of the headaches people here have said about cable. Especially Bresnan. But I am fortunate to live in a neighborhood that is all fiber and really don't get any slow downs. My upload never goes below 1mb and I've never had my download lower than 10mb. But on the DSL, the bandwidth wasn't there. A phone call sounded better than on cable. But if I tried to hit a server and upload at the same time; all hell broke lose. Not enough bandwidth. For normal internet and normal voip; DSL is definitely better. Pings are more stable with DSL also. I don't play games, and really don't care about that side of the internet. But I do understand ping time, latency, and jitter. Voip and live video conferencing relies on it. Luckily; as long as I can stay lower than 150ms cross country and under 80ms locally; voice and video are fine.

So yes, I still believe DSL is better. And at the time I made that post, bandwidth wasn't enough to move me from stability. But I got to a position where I had to have more bandwidth or my systems wouldn't work. It was DSL, Cable, or a T1X3. (Which I couldn't afford). Now; if Qwest ever gets 7mb or higher into my neighborhood; I'll jump back in a hearbeat. But for now; I keep my fingers crossed. Bresnan has been working just fine. It's 3 times the price of DSL, but it works. later... mike....

Just got back to Butte last night...I must say things have gone steeply downhill since I left mid December though its right back to where things were as to be expected. My expectations of Bresnan are deteriorating fast.

I just tried changing MACs quite a few times and got nowhere. I was either getting 500ms to lq1.dslreports.com or 300ms, nothing less - seems I have the lesser of two evils at 300ms but can't really do much with it...

I did find out I can get 3mbit Qwest DSL w/o phone service for $35/month.

If this keeps up I think I will go for it. I'm thinking about getting rid of cable TV entirely once Lost is over.

Since the beginning of the year, I dropped from about 6 megabit to 1 megabit, and line quality was between a C and D.

I was in chat with a technician over 1 hr last night, and they couldn't find a problem. He even temporarily switched me over to the higher speed 15 megabit, and it made no difference. He apologized and we both gave up. I told him a few times that if they couldn't fix the problem within a month, I would be moving to another provider (honestly).

Magically, today, my speed is now maxed out at 8 megabit. Go figure.

I have the 15/1 profile, sadly not the worst I have seen but give it a few hours and it will be close to 1Mb/s. Hard to believe they even offer the 15/1 profile here...

Well, I spoke too soon. What a difference a few hours can make, from 8 megabit to 1, and from a "B" to a "D" ping rating:

Same here.. Except my pings are the same.

Bresnan always claims their standard service is something like 5x faster than 1.5Mb/s DSL in their commercials...I have their 15Mb/s tier and can barely achieve that of 1.5Mb/s DSL at night. They may fix it temporarily but they either keep oversubscribing nodes, backhauls, uplinks out to the internet, or the whole works or they just don't know how to manage what they already have so they bring their own network to it's knees.

Thought I would post this to show what a slap in the face this is...I can get nearly 16Mb/s to Billings but can't even achieve 1.5Mb/s out to the internet. Even if their off network speeds peaked at 13Mb/s I would be a happy camper...the full 15Mb/s package would be icing on the cake at that point.

Well you can get that speed to billings cause it is on their internal network. It's when you try and do anything else that the speed takes a crap.

Every day that passes, I am inching closer to DSL. But I may try and score a few more free months of internet first.

btw: it's 945pm and I am trying to stream the daily show...I can watch about 10 seconds of video before it starts buffering again.

This time it looks like the blame is squarely on 360. If enough people bypass bresnan and complain directly to 360, it might be enough to at leat get them to look at it. Copy your tracerts and email them to customer.service@360networks.com and call their Butte MT office at 406.496.6500

Not necessarily...Remember Bresnan has the other end of that link so it could still be Bresnan's router(s) queuing traffic or failing.

I disagree with your flow of though. 360 does not care about the average Bresnan customer. We don't even pay them, Bresnan does. The only way to get this done is to complain to Bresnan, who in turn should complain to 360.

So here is what I am going to do. I wrote a script on my router and am about to get it set to run every 30 minutes which will run a traceroute to a few locations. It will output to a txt file (one for each location) on my flashdrive with a timestamp before each trace (each time it runs it appends a blank line, the timestamp, then the trace to the txt file)...We shall see since I was asked by their tech support for more traces but with the time of each...Just automated it a little

The flash drive is plugged into one of my router's USB ports and is shared on the network so I can 'check up' on it every now and then.

Thank goodness I didn't opt for Bresnan's "Slow Speed Internet" package. I wonder if the city council would look into getting high speed internet piped into Buffalo for us?
