Re: [Speed] Slow Internet in Allentown, PA

Just reporting in with additional Allentown results. I have 15/2 service. Things have been all over the place for 2 weeks. Last nite, was getting as poor as 1/0.2 service. yes 1Mbps down and 0.2Mbps up.

This morning, the download is pretty good, 12 to 16 Mbps, but upload is really poor! Many times the upload speed test will not even finish. Latency in opening a web site is up to 5 to 10 seconds or more.

And the speed test shows all sorts of crazy results, often indicating download of 20Mbps or higher, and upload of 30 to 40 Mbps.

As I said, this has been bad for the 2 weeks over the holidays. It is time to get it fixed.

Maybe RCN could spend the 20% rate increase on some internet maintenance and repair?

Sorry, it's been a frustrating 2 weeks.
