[Connectivity] [Chicago - Lakeview] Internet Cutting Randoml
It cut out yesterday for about an hour. It is good to call RCN to log the problem for the engineers. I think the problem is in the RCN network - not in a particular building or home. I've been with RCN for more than 10 years. I can tell you that RCN in Lakeview tends to be fine for long periods of time, then have problems that can last up to 2-3 months.
I tried the RCN speed tests. It is interesting that the speed test in Chicago gives me near my 10Mbps rated speed at 9.4 Mbps. Using RCN test in NY shows greatly reduced download speeds, mostly in the 1-2 Mbps range. Uploads are performing solidly. This would lead me to conclude that nothing is wrong with my modem or connection, but that there is some choke point in RCN's network out of Chicago.
