Re: 'Throttling' in Atlanta?

I'm on a Mac and doesn't look like the Real Time Tool is an option without some additional downloads, etc..Per my previous reply, this is likely due to wiring of advance age...In a related matter, I've noticed the U-Verse speed test consistently shows more favorable results than any of the independent sites out there!

Hey!

If I was paying for 18mbps and only getting 2-4mbps, I will raise hell with AT&T until it's fixed or until they refund you all the difference in your monthly payments!

Don't let them get away with it!

Wouldn't that be an indication of external problems on the net? As I understand it the U-Verse speed test is "inside" the AT&T net and if it was running faster it makes me think there are problems other than your wiring.

I'm not sure if I made any sense above or not. Of course, all of that could be a total lack of understanding in how it works on my part.

As mentioned, there are SO many factors that affect what sort of speed you get..i.e. "UP TO 18mbps"....

Im not sure about your area but here in the midwest the techs have been told to not bill for service calls. I would unplug your modem and call T2 @ 866-329-2662, and tell them you are not connected. They will run you thru those standard reboot sequences, just play along. They will finally conclude you are having issues and send out a tech.

This is what I would instruct all of my customers to do if they wanted a tech out.

The U-verse speed test is highly unreliable. It showed my 3 down plan as 7 or so which is definitely not true.

Because I use Linux primarily and do not wish to screw around with windows, I have used this browser-based tool (o.s.-agnostic) that provides some of the same kinds of analysis.

I use that on my Mint as well to confirm the UVRT results on my 'Doze box. UVRT is spot on.
