Re: [Network] Download speeds slow
The low bandwidth and/or high ping issue is a common complaint on the windstream forums. They typically oversubscribe to a point that it's unusable during peak times.
Don't expect a fix any time soon. My wife and I have personally been dealing with the same high ping/low speed for over 2 years now.
The offical word from Windstream as of a couple days ago, they are aware of the issue but "There is no ETR." In other words, they know, but they don't care. I'll second the previous poster's suggestion about using whatever alternative ISP is in your area. Unfortunately, we have no viable alternative here, so Windstream gets to keep charging us, and ignoring us.
I am afraid we might have the same issue; no providers other that Windstream. I did, however, inquire with ATT and they said it might be up ot 2 months but that they were coming into the area soon. Maybe good old fasioned competition will shake them up if customer complaints don't work.
BTW thak you all for replys.
