[ALL] Recently moved to Las Vegas

I had great HSI in Baton Rouge no matter what server I used for testing with speedtest.net. Now, in Las Vegas I only see that same high speed (25Mbs/2.56Mbs) using Vegas itself as the test server. Just about anywhere east of Nevada it's less than half that and as low as 6Mbs/.9Mbs (Dallas), 9Mbs/.6Mbs (New York), 10Mbs/.6Mbs (Atlanta), 8Mbs/.8Mbs (Chicago). Servers to the west are in the 20Mbs range such as LA and Seattle. It's almost like we are restricted from everything not on Pacific time. I've tested at random and it's been like that for the 3 months I've been here.

Why such a big difference in speed for everything east of Vegas? Does anyone on the west coast have this problem or is there something special about Cox in Vegas?
