Re: [Speed] Slow & stalled UK & EU websites for the past week on

said by brianapp6:

on 10/2 I am up to 50k/sec. Something helped but I wouldn't call it fixed. A 50kbps connection costs a lot less than the 6mbs connection I am paying for.

How fast can they push data? I am currently seeing about 300KB/s, which is consistent with a 3.0mb/s connection (I used to have one from AT&T).




Current download speed.

I stopped the download in order to run a speed test on my connection, then resumed the download. Trouble is, I don't know which file to attempt to download (there are several), or what time to try.

10/5 5:30 Pm still only getting 20k/sec. I have given up on anyone working on this issue. I guess my only choice is to switch to another service that doesn't have this problem. Comcast shouldn't just let their European sit at this rate but I guess that is what is happening.

Don't switch to Sonic.net, LLC; you will only be disappointed. Here is a download closer to the same time as your attempt:

Current download speed.

Granted it is faster than you are getting; but it is much slower than my off-peak hour attempt.

Plus, for grins and giggles, a trace route:

And, finally, a current speed test:



I am not inclined to think it is just a Comcast problem.

Feel free to try another ISP, but the problem is a limitation of the download web site. I am getting 24KB through an 80Mbps Verizon account.

I tend to agree with devnuller - my speeds to my own sites hosted on fasthosts have returned to normal - after 2 weeks of very slow or completely stalled loading. And it seems that checkerboard can access his french auto site fine now as well. Have you tried connecting through another isp recently to test the download onto your own computer since some of the problems have been repaired? Could it be the particular site you are accessing that may also have some problems as well?
