Re: Cogeco's Broken Usage Meter

said by cog_biz_user:

mine's still working, but there is a slight skew for yesterday.

smoothwall says 158mb uploaded, cogeco says 187mb.

 
I have not so far tested MINE for accuracy, but just curious - have you ever seen theirs be wrong in YOUR favour ?

BTW, MINE has just caught up today, and now only owes me results for the 7th of March.

i'm not sure if it's ever been skewed in my favour, but this the first time i've actually sat down day-to-day and verified it.

my stats for yesterday are posted... 3382/204 - smoothwall says 3.2gb/187mb... so it would seem my upload is off by ~50mb in the past 3 days.

I've seen Cogeco's usage numbers skewed in my favour a few times. Rare, but it has happened.

IMHO, it's just as bad. Inaccurate is inaccurate.

Looks like my luck ran out. No early stats today. I wonder if the DST change has anything to do with that, or the fact that today is Sunday. I'll check back this afternoon.

edit: (3pm)Here we go... 1232/131 - smoothwall says 1.2gb/119mb.

LMAO... if I see a headline on the DSLr front page along the lines of "DST Confuses Cogeco Meter" I'm going to take the day off and get drunk on some cheapass wine.

You should be able to afford some notsocheapass wine, with all the cash you saved in your switch !

But not much surprises me anymore these days.

Maybe the birds and squirrels perching on or running along the cable to & from the pole are confusing GOUGEco's meter when it tries to count THEM TOO !
