[Speed] Post your speedtest between 8pm-12am here

The objective of this thread is to try and get as many people as possible to post speedtests during peak hours, which is usually 8pm-12am.

I'll start.



At 12:38AM. After peak usage. I will post a speedtest during peak hours tomorrow.

Please guys, don't turn this thread into a flame fest. We need as many voices as we can get so that we can have a fighting chance at getting reliable broadband.

Truthfully, 12.81 might be nearly the best test I have ever posted. I might have gotten 12.9 one time. Eagerly waiting the 24 Mb packages in my area

Mine is the same at any time of day or night, has been for years, and rarely drops below 12MB/640.

It could be, and probably is an over-utilization issue on the equipment you are drawing your signal from. Basically that means there is too many people on the equipment and not enough bandwidth to go around. Feel free to send us a PM or post your phone number in »Windstream Direct so that we can confirm.

Not to bust on ya too hard, Aaron, because I appreciate what y'all do on this forum, but another way to phrase that same issue would be "oversold".

The way you said it makes it sound to me like too many spoiled brat kids are clamoring for the new brand of candy at the snack bar. To my way of thinking, the candy store should stock the counter and open enough registers to handle the demand before they put out the "for sale" sign.

Keep them coming guys, I've been away for the last couple of days, which is the reason why I haven't posted. I'll keep you updated on my speed tests at home.

I average 1.5 megabits down/.5 megabits up during the hours of 8pm-12am from data gathered so far.

New speed from TWC all's good so far I guess only time will tell if the speeds hold up. But I'm happy to say Windstream no longer is my provider a 2 year wait and no end in sight was enough for me.
