Re: IA Century Link Faster Speeds?
Your downstream attenuation is high just based on that I think that is why you can't get a faster speed you could try to connect the modem to the NID outside and check the numbers again to see if your inside wiring could be a problem.
I'm getting a constant 3mb I just want to buy higher speeds and if it's not going to be available anytime soon I may as well cancel. I get faster speeds with a cellular connection.
Have you called centurylink and asked them if you could upgrade? If it is possible try to talk to a tech if you see one where the fiber is being ran he could be able to tell you if they are doing speed upgrades.
Based on the downstream attenuation a estimate your line is probably capable of about 6mbps and you have to factor in overhead. So 3 Mbps might be all you can get if the line stats can't get any better you could also try to get a tech out to look at the line and see if there are any damages or bridge taps
I did when I called and asked why I was not getting 7mb when I was told I would and they then said the highest was 3mb. Kind of disappointing really. They said they didn't have any of that information. I'm not sure how or what it would take to get a real answer from them. I seem to get a different story every time.
