Re: [AL] SpeedTest.net pointing to Des Moines,IA as closest...
Can you guys try using speakeasy.net for your speed tests and choose Atlanta, GA? I'd be curious to see if there is a difference. I'd almost be willing to bet that your traffic goes through 56Marietta at some point (so ATL would be "closer" to you then Arab). Arab must be the old BMTC/Deltacom or Otelco pops. If you have a chance give it a shot and let us know the results. Thanks.
It doesn't matter which server you pick. The top speed stays right at 10.6.
are you using a software firewall? sometimes they can make a speed test look bad. if you are try shutting off your firewall while testing and maybe even your a/v just long enough to run the test
As of this morning from the ATL..
Speakeasy giving me 10.5/2.5
I never had trouble reaching almost 20mbit in non-peak hours till lately. Of course it now seems I have traded 1mbit peak speeds for around 11mbit peak speeds, which is not bad. Still all below the cheaper 12mibt package.
On my bill it clearly states MAXX service, and I have tried all the tests without my router
