Re: [Cable] Painfully slow 28/1 mississauga today
said by UUUjk :Actually it's not... Mississauga has one POI (point of interconnection) Between Rogers and TSI. If it was congested, ALL USERS (ever last one) would see slow downs at the same time. They aren't or we would see MASS complaints.
That's normal for Teksavvy. Over subscribed. Every night I have to slow down my download or else my VOIP phone will become off hook. And when you call them they will say everything looks ok on their end. And will ask you to recycle modem power...etc...
#1 issue for most in the GTA and some other areas of Toronto is LOCAL NODE CONGESTION, this is the ROGERS part of the network, and effects all users. The way around this is ensuring you have a Docsis 3 modem. Although technically D2 modems will work, they tend to run into issues with congestion due to the technology they use.
#2 issue is a poor router. Test the connection without a router connected. MODEM DIRECT TO THE COMPUTER
#3 is poor signal to the modem. Sometimes this causes major issues with speed.
#4 Rogers is having issues with their local network before the POI. Sometimes wires are cut or things are being worked on.
