Re: [Speed] RCN Astoria NY Speeds bad past 5pm

I called yesterday here in Astoria and they are sending a tech out so hopefully they find the issue.

I have to say the tech dude came out yesterday and checked the wires and some other stuff. After everything he replaced the modem and I must say there is a noticeable difference. I guess I needed a new modem or maybe the modem need to be reconfigured.

Do you have any update from the senior tech? Astoria peak speeds are still ridiculously slow and the latency is horrible.

Re: [Speed] RCN Astoria NY Speeds bad past 5pm

Ok so last few weeks we did a good number of changes and upgrades in this area. We've got a few more that we want to work though but if you guys wouldn't mind following up tonight with how things are that would be great!

I have been away for a couples of weeks. I am in the Astoria park area. I noticed a big improvement in the speeds. It is 7 pm, and the speeds are great. I did the test using my Cisco wireless router.

Thank you RCN!

Very odd, I've noticed a significant decrease in speed again during peak hours. I'm getting 4~5mbps on my DOCSIS 3 modem in Astoria Ditmars. Not sure if this is snow related but I'll continue to monitor throughout the week.
