[Brighthouse] panhandle.rr.com VERY slow downloads
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.
You are right. Currently my slowdown is not on rr.com's side. But mine is still showing it starts in Tampa with Level3.net.
