Re: [DSL] Slow DSL Internet Speeds in Kitchener in Evenings

Yeah, its possible When I tried at 5pm, I was getting perfect 25/10 speeds but then now its almost 9pm and this is what I get:




This is in Montreal. My upload speed is basically its max but the download is about 10x slower.

I've been getting ridiculously slow speeds as of late as well. It's so slow, that I can't even watch a simple video online without it buffering every 30 seconds. It's not the site because it happens with both Youtube and CTV.

I've got it the worst it seems. Very high ping and 1998-esque download speeds.

I think Bell is screwing with Teksavvy again. What else could it be?




Edit: And here's what I'm getting from the wifi I'm stealing from a neighbour.

Yes, it is very similar to my experience. Like you say, upload speeds are fine but download speed really sucks after 5pm.

Latest Speedtest @ 9:48pm
Yikes! 323ms Ping? (Not to mention the slow download and upload speeds).

There is no doubt something fishy is going on as this is obviously not an isolated problem and it occurs in a number of different cities. The fact that a friend of mine who is on Bell DSL has the same issue (about 100 yards away) makes me wonder if this is some Bell infrastructure problem. Anyway, I hope they figure it out soon.

I have attached my latest speed test and although better than yours is nothing to write home about.

I just powered off my modem (TP Link 8816) and restarted it. Before I had a 69.xxx.xxx.xxx IP, now it's a 206.xxx.xxx.xxx one.

Here's the speedtest results now.

well well well 1 am is there an guess whats back? my internet speed

honestly if you think this issue is a few people you are wrong the problem is most users don't test line speeds or pay attention its amazing teksavvy has gone totally down the toilet.
