how do you guys get 38 mbps upload on 75/35? I can only get 84/32-33 mbps upload.

Any tips?

Another slowdown this evening. Only getting about 40 down on the 75/35 plan.

I was getting 84/38 this morning.

Some of us get more than that. I'm seeing 58/44 on my 50/25 line here in PA.

For what it's worth, I have been seeing weekly slowdowns here in North Jersey since Hurricane Sandy came through. I am not saying Sandy caused the issues, just that is when I started noticing.

I see my 50/25 speed reduced to around 5/15 on Saturday evenings.....coming back to my normal 53/30 on Sunday morning. My guess is that Fios is being used a lot by everyone using Netflix on Saturday evenings. Just a guess, but it makes sense.
