I've seen where other areas that Road Runner servers is running extremely slow speeds. Maybe if enough of us post, whine and complain they will start to listen to us. I got of the phone with a VERY unknowlegable rep from Brighthouse. She ran through the whole deal about resetting modem (gee why didn't I think of that!?) etc etc. She then reset my modem (tried to tell her I already have done that all week this week). Now they want to send a tech to my home and I tried to tell her the problem is further away then my house but again what do I know? All the tests I run are showing my bottleneck to be in Tampa on Road Runners network but nope...need to send a tech to my house. Anyways, if this wasn't so persistent it would be funny. For the heck of it, here is my current speed test for everybody to get a good giggle out of.
Your Speed is 299 kbps
BLAZING speed ain't it?
