Re: Why can't Fairpoint provide steady service?

A tech came here yesterday. He said there isn't any cap's or allowances.Also when I have two pc's on a line the speed get's cut in half. I guess I can't win. I wish they'd go away too.
How can I get Road Runner or any other service on the phone line? No cable lines here. I do get cell but I assume it's very expensive.

That is true - as far as I know FairPoint does impose any sort of monthly cap.

Multiple PCs will only affect Internet performance if they are actually using the Internet. If only one machine is on at a time do you get good speedtest result?

It may be that one of the PCs on your LAN is doing a lot of network access in the background or it could be infected.

Bottom line when tech was on site was his computer getting rated speed? If so then something on your LAN is causing a problem. If tech was not able to obtain rated speed what did he/she say they were going to do to fix the problem?
