Re: Start Communications - new TPIA Rogers/Cogeco

Also in Ottawa, on the 18/0.5 package:





So while my download is showing a little slow (though worth noting my Steam download I just started is jumping between 15 and 18 Mbps), I'm not seeing numbers as bad as yours. And I never see my upload speeds drop. It could be local node congestion, or it could be something on your end - wiring, modem, etc.

Edit: I'm also on a D2 modem, which is what I've been blaming for the small drop in peak-time download speeds.

My wife is trying to watch a movie on netflix and it buffers a lot.

No idea what is going on, doubt its local node congestion since there are other ppl complaining as well??

One person and on a D2 modem. It is peak time and you're getting 25Mbps which is certainly sufficient for Netflixing. Perhaps you have some other activity in the house going on? Cable is inherently a more burstable product though, ie speeds can and will often fluctuate during peak times, especially the higher the maximum is.

I did not say its not enough for netflix, but i also said there is packet loss when i am doing tests (which of course you did not comment about) so, that might be the problem.

Anyway, you guys always respond to the parts you want, not important parts.

Over and out.

I didn't see any reference to that above? I'm sorry if I've missed it, I read back and still don't see it though.

Not sure where that is coming from, I'm pretty sure there isn't a single question in this 76 page thread I haven't answered.
