[Northeast] Really slow 75/35

Normally I am flying along at 9.8MB/s but for the last few weeks it has been spotty with a current speed of 2.2MB/s

I have tried several download/upload sources and they all give the same results with speeds dipping down into 1.8MB/s territory.

As of this writing I am getting 4.5MB/s which is about half of what I normally expect.

Think my area has been saturated? Should I call a tech?

I am also on 75/35 and I always hit 11.00 MB/s and 2 days asgo around 8M I was getting 50-70 never reached 85 but problem got fixed few hours later when I came home.. really weaird maybe servers are sometimes not being able to pull out our speeds?

What state do you live in? I'm going to guess NY or NJ? It seems a lot of these slowdowns are becoming less rare for those living in these areas. I wonder if Sandy caused re-routing of pathways that caused the alternate routes to be overloaded

initially my speeds were SUPER fast because during Sandy I had a generator and was one of the few in my neighborhood who actually had internet working.

You're right though, if in fact after everything settled they decided to re-arrange things. Also they now have the "Ultimate" package that has 300Mbit down for business, so maybe that has had an impact?

I live in Westchester, NY about 40mins north of NYC.

I upgraded from 150 to 300 and easily see 300+ at all times of the day, 8pm, 4am, rock steady. I am farther upstate than you so maybe that's a factor.

and I am from Queens, NY for example when I go to speedtest.net closest server that the site choses is never giving me 84 mbps unless it's like 2-3 am, the site I always use for speedtest is »speedtest.comcast.net and the Plainfield,NJ server.
