[IA] ultra50 speeds have dropped badly in last 2 weeks

Looks like Iowa city may have an issue with downstream. Getting poor speeds and high latentcy. did we have another fiber cut or something?

to add... most of the sites in iowa are slow... but i hit a wiscoson server at 56Mb/5.6 up... so i dont think it is the local loop. I am beginning to think there is a backbone router dead somewhere

I see a spike in Downstream RX, are you using a splitter?

yes... but it is the one that tech put on.. i have it split 4 ways... I moved it to my booster to see if that was the problem, it wasnt... just havent been able to revert it.

My speeds have been sub-par on my ultra50 connection here in Coralville. Can hardly watch 480p videos sometimes :\

There's something wrong at the headend, in Iowa City (hop #2), as it's been a little off the past couple of days.

Sometimes I get a good spedtest.net test result, and then sometimes it won't finish the upload test.

Would this affect Cedar Rapids? In the past 2 hrs. we have simply crashed here. Ran speed test's but nothing happens. Something is wrong here. Will be lucky to get this to post.

There is an outage posted for the area and is a widespread issue throughout the state. These issues did start yesterday and would most likely be the cause of your problem. Since the issue is reported we are already working on a resolution. I do not have an accurate ETR at this point in time.

Well, if it stays like this, I'd be a real happy camper.



Normally I can't even get a test to complete on that site or it ends up in the 2 to 4Mbps range on the download.

480p on YouTube? IF so most likely it's not you, YouTube is known for throttling bandwidth to viewers. Right now I am getting 57Mbps down but can only pull 2Mbps down from YouTube. It sometimes takes a few minutes to load the video to even watch it.
