Re: [Speed] web pages load very slow for 15Mb connection

In my experience, speedtest sites are a horrible way to test connections over say 30mb. When I had the 107 contract, speedtests rarely showed over 70mb.

What I did to test was find several large files on high throughput servers on the internet and stack them up. Doing this I was able to flatline my connection at 100mb+ looking at taskmanager ->networking.

Well I called suddenlink and they sent a tech out to my house. He did find there were some issues with water in the lines at the poll and cleaned them up.
He also ran a direct line to my house separate from the spliter that the neighbors are on.
Ran a few tests, and for just a second I hit over 100Mbps, then droped below 80Mbps.

Tech said issue has to be at the node and he is going to escalate the issue. Only problem is he admitted not many people where I live have or care about a connection this fast.

I on the other hand am running 2 custom built gaming pc's 3 cell phones, and 2 tablets all on one connection. I do need the bandwith!
