4:09 pm. Kiddos are getting home from school and jumping on the net now. And my 12mb connection begins to drop...

Same issues here near Amicalola Falls State park. I've been with WS since November 2004. My connections had always been rock solid until December 2012. Since then, it's been an absolute disaster in the evenings.




I'm also paying for 12/768.

My hope is that when they upgrade sometime, they'll get these problems worked out. Also, I'm really hoping someone other than WS can get into this area as another provider. Nothing like competition to straighten out issues like this.

Funny you said that. They are trying to help get a bill passed that would keep out competition.

While some would say I'm doing better they they are (and he/she would be right), this is still not he 12Mbps I am paying for.

Of course the Windstream test always seems to be a little higher.

Your results are interesting, typically with over saturation latency increases dramatically, yet your ping is fantastic. Have you looked to see what your modem's sync rate is?

My modem is in bridge mode. I really don't want to change the config again. Been there, done that many times.

As is mine, you can still check the signals while leaving the modem in bridge mode, but it does require assigning a static IP to your pc temporarily and connecting directly.

Fair enough

3:30 pm. Better than 1Mbps. Still not the 12Mbps I am paying for. 1/4th of what I am paying for. If this is the average, then I should be paying $12.50/month vs. $50.

8:00 pm. Barely 4. Definitely not the 12 I pay for. Does seem a little better. I'm not seeing as much of the 1Mbps or lower that I saw before.

Notice the high jitter. This is why so many WS users complain of Skype and Vonage (Voip) issues.

This is the first time I have been able to test today. It's not as bad as some of the others. But its still not the 12Mbps I am paying for.
