...I moved to another town.
A few weeks ago I mentioned that my Internet speeds were hanging out around 5MBPS even though I pay for 100 MBPS. Spectrum came out and physically stared at the incoming cable but staring at it didn't seem to do anything so the tech left.
I knew I was moving so I gave up on caring about it.
Anyways, I am a new place, a new town and there is :
1 cable buried in the ground that comes up to my house.
Out of that one cable I ran a cable inside to the cable modem. No splitters, nothing else.
I also bought a quad-core tri-band router Linksys AC2200.[^]
I now get 114 MBPS over direct connect from cable modem. We have 3 people streaming UHD tv, PlayStation games and various other stuff and everything is fast.
So, if you're having problems, just move to a new city.
If I had had a coffee... my monitor would be probably dirty right now
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Coming back to Oz from Singapore is like stepping back 20 years. I guess it is not fair comparing the 2, SG is the size of Sydney
And you decided to move to Far North Queensland. In a few weeks you will be an hour and 50 years behind the rest of the East Coast.
"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
I assume you are writing about your private home Connection....
I suggest, take the slow Connection as it is. In the meantime when not everybody can suck the max from the Internet... take a glass of wine, cook together and slow down at least at home Start living again....
Just recognized, I will make a patent for this... "take our slow Internet Connection to come back to your real live"
It does not solve my Problem, but it answers my question
The gas company is doing some maintenance on lines in the area, and had called in the utility location services Monday.
Yesterday morning, I walked out of my house to find 4 construction guys standing staring into a hole they had just dug in my yard. Curious as to why they where all standing there scratching their chin, I wandered over. Seems that the backhoe had found an underground telco line. Shredding it in the process. LOL
Good thing I have cable Internet (over head), and not DSL.
I know across the street there are fiber lines, I wonder if they did the same thing.
Common sense is admitting there is cause and effect and that you can exert some control over what you understand.
