[OOL] Why have speeds been all over the place lately?

I'm in Stamford, CT., and for the last 3 weeks to a month my speeds have been fluctuating wildly. Has anyone else in the area been seeing the same thing? Are they messing with the routing of traffic again? Or does this have to do with the Netflix CDN deal?

Any info would be welcome.

Thank you

I'm going to make some predictions:

"Are they messing with the routing of traffic again?

Probably not & definitely not.

I've had some "weird" stuff relating to speeds too (Fairfield, CT).

There were days when I was downloading a service pack from Microsoft only to see the file max out at ~700KB/s - same for ISOs from TechNet. Some days it was worse than that. Tried Apple for their 1GB DMG "Printer Drivers" too.... hehe.

I was sure it was my router and was flashing different firmware and then got to the point plugging directly to the modem and got the same (from Microsoft).

Then probably like 3-4 days ago it just went back to normal speeds everywhere, dunno..

To me it seem that they are definitely messing with the routing, I'm now not getting over 400Kb/s at 10:39pm, not on the ftp test or Youtube.

Do you have proof of such bold statements?

I do not, it is just a personal observation.

Edit: ShockTech, I've edited the post you quoted to better show that I was making a personal observation and not a statement

How long did the weird speed stuff last for you before it went back to normal? A week, a few weeks, a month, etc.?

Few weeks i'd say, about 2-3 but I didn't pay attention much thinking it could have been just a minor hiccup.

Ok, thanks. Hope it's not as long, but it's good to have some sort-of time frame
