Re: [Speed] Speed increase.

said by mrschultz02:

Well, those speed tests were helpful...?

Increases, decreases, the same?

First 2 look like blast speed anyway, this round of increases seems to be only for people on the performance 16/2 tier.

Well, in my case, I have seen an increase in upload speed. Here is another speed test that I just did (link and attached pic are the same).

»www.speedtest.net/result/2499658 ··· 8368.png

Last year I did a test from that site, and did keep a log. That information is below

While I know speed tests sites like that don't show the complete picture, in the past week or so I've seen my upload climb now to anything between 15 MB/s and 45 MB/s (again, using the same site).

While I have not keep track as I did before (I think I will start now with the above test), something is going on for me. Again, no idea what, but something is changing. As I said, my upload (at least as reported from speedtest.net) was always right around 4 Mbps for the longest time.

I am on the performance package, as my bill says "Performance Internet Svc Includes Powerboost".

It does seem like they are having problems setting the upload, if yours is going nuts that might be an indication they are making the change. My upload speed still jumps around depending on the test I run, if I FTP something large it settles down to 4Mbps.

FYI: the Java test here at DSLReports is giving me the same rates I get doing FTP. Other flash based tests seem to be very inconsistent now.
