Re: Time Warner Boosting Standard Speed to 15Mbps

so just to be clear, does one need a D3 modem to take full advantage of the 15/1 upgrade? I have a SB5101 now...

and has this 15/1 upgrade come to Upstate NY (Syracuse)?

Well this upgrade has been a real downgrade at night:




Every night since the upgrade has been this.

I suspect my pings swing above 300 or so

You suspect? Run traces/pings. Suspecting does not cut it.

I'm not that worried about it. If fluctuates so much. Right now 100+ to 200+







Looks like I'm having the same experience as Konaguy had when they upgraded there, thinking about downgrading until they get their network issues fixed. This is pretty bad.

Going to google soon anyway.

have you looked at signal levels? called into tier 3? had anyone out? There have been a lot of upgrades in the KC area lately. If it is simply a utilization issue a D3 modem would alleviate that problem.

Yea everything looks good. During the day I get a solid 20 Meg's, come 7pm till 11 I get less than 1 meg. I don't have time to call the, at the moment, and I'm not too concerned.

Just got my speed bump a couple days ago.

I was just going to come here to ask, and now I see it's official.

Nice.

When it comes to internet speed, the USA is among the slowest and most expensive in the 1st world.

Since most people in my neighborhood use u-verse, I'm enjoying full 15mbit 24/7

Sheesh, those speeds are horrible. They're much worse than I got a year and half ago after Oceanic upgraded the speed tiers here.

Unfortunately I don't have the time or the energy to fight with them right now.

I'm counting the days until I can switch to google fiber.
