Re: It's that time of year again

My only other options are Clear and Verizon DSL, neither of which appeal to be at present price points and value. But if this doesn't improve, I may walk as well. This is bullshit.

Fios has shown us that the whole 'cable is shared thus bandwidth/speed will get degraded' has really worn thin on most of us. Any ISP should be able to handle all its customers it signs up without any slowdown. Oversubscribing when this time of year rolls around really bites any cable ISP in the ass.

Every residential ISP oversubscribes. It's the nature of the business. I wouldn't imagine it being cost-effective to reserve a certain amount of bandwidth for each customer at the current customer price points. Cablevision might be one of the fewer ISPs offering unlimited, un-metered service but that doesn't mean it costs them any less to provide that.

I'm just saying that they need to keep in check those abusing the local pipe. I'm aware of my generous upload speed capability, doesn't mean that I'm willingly going to use it all the time disregarding the potential impact on everyone else.

Upload speeds that low in the past, have to the best of my knowledge, not been due to congestion. I assume you have posted in the direct forum. When they occurred to me a year or 2 ago, they managed to fix it pretty fast after I posted in that forum.

I've been taking the wait-and-see approach. I know it will eventually go away. But if it doesn't in a couple days, I will post there.

Well, I rarely upload so I did not care as I was still seeing good download speeds (I only have standard). It went on for weeks before I posted. It was cleared up within 2 days after I posted.

I clocked in 48/7 just now, right around the time frame when the slowdown was happening. Guess it's fixed.

Woo yay
