Re: Massive Slowdowns?

You should downgrade to 8mbit...if you aren't getting your advertised speed, there is no reason to pay them more money a month.

I would but usually during non-peak hours when I really need my VPN connection I can get decent upload speeds which is why I keep it around. We did downgrade in Powell before we switched ISPs but upload wasn't too important for me back than. Since they added their additional bandwidth things have gone lower than the 'norm'.

I would suggest that, too.. Unless he needs the upload (3x faster than the 8mbps package).

Hm, network outage (fun). Guess I needed to go to bed anyways. Modem can sync the downstream channel but can't find the upstream channel to lock onto. Called and they said they have a network outage in the area (tethering from my phone to post this).

This may come as no surprise...Speeds are back in the dump again. It has been nice the last week or two after they made their 'upgrade' but that seems to have been short lived.

Butte's CMTS is down again. Modem lost sync at 12:30, called and they are doing scheduled maintenance on it. ETA to being back up: 4:30AM...
