[INTERNET] 12 hours now with slow internet?

Hey,

Normally, I can watch livestreams from various games.

When I got home yesterday (about 2pm EST), I couldn't watch any livestreams at all. It would freeze every 2-3 seconds.

I also play Star Wars The Old Republic and World of Warcraft. Both games are unplayable since 2pm EST yesterday. I get high latency in both, causing me to get disconnected 2 minutes into playing.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

Yes, I am experiencing slow download speeds. On my internet connection from Cogeco Cable with a 14 megabits per second (Mbps) download speed, various internet connection speed test websites I used to test my connection gave me measurements of only 0.8 to 10 Mbps. The website www.speedtest.net gave me the 0.8 Mbps download speed measurement.

This weekend, I have been finding that some websites I tried to visit would have their webpages take a very long time to be downloaded and displayed fully on my computer monitor. In fact, some attempts to go to a website simply timed out on me.

Regards,
Wayne Baker

I also have a 10mbps connect with cogeco and at least once a day my internet connection becomes really slow (i.e.: less than 2 mbps). I have to always unplug my cable modem and plug it back it. It is so annoying.

Can anyone confirm if this is ongoing. If so, it's probably best to call in so we can track this.

here in Welland, I've had intermittent down times last night and today..they only lasted a few minutes though and a reset modem brought all lights on the one time I did it.

I'll definitely be calling in if it continues.
