Re: [Speed] Bethlehem slow internet at peak hours
Wow your power levels are pretty high, -12 to +12 is what RCN recommends (-6 to +6 is real world "good"), so +14 is really out of spec. Do you notice when your speed is faster/slower if those signal levels change at all?
CHECK YOUR FSLC TAXES!!!
they don't change at all.. they have been that way since the cable was run.. even when i had 75 mbps every day it was like that
Re: [Speed] Bethlehem slow internet at peak hours haha.. i was happy with rcn until now
For some reason this happens during the winter. Over the past few years it seems like internet speeds come to a crawl. I don't know why either.
I normally don't measure my speeds off the speedtests either as I think the burst speed throws it off. I pay for a giganews account and normally watch the speeds while downloading from their servers. Most of the time I'm in the mid 60s. Like you, I'm only seeing at most in the 20s now. All my signals are in the green per the speed test page.
For giggles I just ran speedtest.net and got 21Mbps down/9Mbps Up.
So it seems like all with all the area posts, the entire Lehigh Valley is having speed issues. What is going on RCN?
this is absolutely ridiculous.. I am getting 2 mbps and under right now at 830.. all i want to do is play a stinking video game and it is lagging all over the place.. this is unacceptable.
stever, can you repost your encoded... the first one seems to be missing either the front or the back.
