Internet is slow during non-peak hours? Post speedtest here!

We've got a thread for reporting our speed during "peak hours" but needed one for "non peak hours" as of late.

Let's get the snowball rolling:

You can see the church goers here on this test about 8:30 am on Sunday. Since everyone headed for Church it's gone back to full speed, but this is another new primetime, Sunday morning before Church.

This is a Sunday afternoon. Our problem was supposed to be resolved on Feb 8th and I was to get a courtesy call to make sure. It ain't fixed and I got no call. Par for the course.

This is not peak, it's 4am. Yet my ping is through the roof. Otherwise normal for this time.

Yes Windstream, as you can see here, there is a problem in the mornings. Better 'coin' a new term for it... "Extended Hours Latency Outage"

This is after about two weeks and 2 responses on the windstream direct forum telling me to expect an update from the "engineers".

That is after multiple calls to tech support telling me to expect a call back with an update from "engineers".

I'm so sick of this sh*t I'm about to have some kind of apoplectic meltdown. No other providers available to create market competition for customers. No interest on the part of windstream to fix their busted ass network. No legal recourse since they don't guarantee anything.

I feel somewhat guilty for raging at the technicians because I know they are either oblivious or powerless. Nothing at this point would make me happier than half an hour alone with one of the slick suited pricks running this joke of a company in a room with no windows.

I'm wondering if there might be a basis for a legal challenge to what windstream is up to...

On the grounds that for 3 years I had the 1.5Mb I'm paying for, only to have windstream sell part of that 1.5Mb to one or more other customers and now at least 2 but perhaps several people are paying for the same 1.5Mb and none of us are getting it.

Isn't there a term for selling the same asset to multiple customers knowing full well that they wont be able to take advantage of the asset they purchased???

Oh yeah it's called "Fraud". Not quite a ponzi scheme but pretty close.

My speed test when no one else is even home.



Also, my line monitor. Every day from 01:03-01:33 my Internet goes down for some stupid reason.

I'm on dialup! Oh wait. No I'm not! This just the quality of service you get from Windstream.

paying for 12mb down and this is the best they have. Sent email to CEO of Windstream...nothing. If had a good alternative would switch.

My connection is fucking horrible. Horrible latency, horrible download speeds. What am I supposed to do? There's no other isp available out here besides fucking Hughesnet and you can't play games online with that trash.

After a letter to Jeff Gardner (from me and from many,many others in my subdivision) it seems that last Thursday night Windstream did an "upgrade to the backhaul from Braselton to Commerce" and speeds/latency have almost returned to normal for my 12MB service. I'll keep an eye on it and continue to test at various times throughout the week.
