Re: Slow speeds every night

Ive emailed the NorthEast Regional Managers with no response on the matter as of tonight.
Ive been keeping a record of the speed decreases for the past several days.
The speed degregation starts after 7:00 P.M. every night
It's as if they are flipping a switch to automatically limit my connection.
Trying to stream Netflix or Download from XBOX 360 or DirectTV on demand is a joke.
$32.99 a month plus the modem fee is highway robbery.
They have till Jan. 11th to get it straight or they are gone.
I hate to leave because I have no latency issues since I complained a few years back while losing packets like crazy.
It took them awhile to fix that but they did.
2012 and we have to deal with this.
EDIT:I found my old latency issue thread
»Frontier DSL in NY Latency and packet loss issues

You say it's just a slow down but your ping is fine. How have you tested your latency?
I just realized if you are basing your latency and loss on the line test or any line test from outside. some time ago Frontier did something to make any kind of ping or loss from an incoming test was changed so that it will not show the true status of data through the hop or device you are pinging. If you test each hop from your box going out you will see what I mean. Do a tracert to get the IP's and trust me test your first hop and you will see. Allso forget pings to most known big sites like google or yahoo I have allso found that Frontier's network favors them in out going pings too just stic to hops close to you try frontier.com this way you know you are on thier home network and you get real results as to where the trouble is.


I live in west central Illinois, and I get the exact same problem every night starting at just around the same time.
