Re: [Scam] 2wire speedtest is a scammer's tool supported by bund

said by wtfomgbbq :

Got a phone call today from a DSL seller claiming to represent verizon. he sent me over to 2wire to do a speed test which showed my speed to be a whopping 2.8 MB down. However since I just ran a speed test last week I know this to be false so I pulled up speakeasy's test and told him that no, I'm actually getting 10-12mb down and take your crappy ADSL and f*** off.

I see what you mean! Pace/2Wire claims my current download speed is a mere 8.5 Mbps; roughly half of what my "crappy ADSL" actually delivers:



And this while actually using Pace 4111N-030 RG!

Yeah, 2wire is bogus. Says my dl is 1.9mbps. Hogwash.
