Author Topic: this is ridiculous (internet speed sudden snail butt)  (Read 2942 times)

i've avoided making a thread about this issue, but wow, it's ridiculous now.

here's my internet speed months back:






AND THEN SUDDENLY




there has been no downgrade or change in our internet plan.

it just suddenly decided to be five butts.

there are no reported problems in the area, and this has been going on for at least two months.

does anyone know what the problem may be?

i'm almost positive it's an ISP issue, but i'd like to be sure

Possible router issues if you have one.


What is the conversion rate from Megabytes to Butts?

^Don't know why but I found that pretty funny.

hey, at least your upload speed went up :)

Problems persist when connected directly to the modem.

Sorry.

Type this into command prompt:
tracert google.com

I use Mediacom too and it is slower than a handicapped turtle.

Hm.
Try another modem?
"another modem"

the modem is provided by our ISP, we don't have another one

Type this into command prompt:
tracert google.com
Sure. Hold on.

I'm pretty sure 30Mbps is above-average.

I think the global average is ~12Mbps, but I'm only about 60% sure.

It was fine up until recently.

That is a positive, I guess, yes. c:

8Mbits = 7Asses
