Broadband VI slow lately?
Just what the title says. Is it just me, or is anyone else experiencing terrible latency/lag/slowness.
Cotton Valley STX. $49.95 'Residential Broadband'.
Yeah, it's been atrocious lately. I suspect the fiddling about in C'sted has a lot to do with it.
Bob, you just showed a 1.63Mbps download, you pay for 1.5Mbps, with 16ms latency to STT.
I hope you are being sarcastic about "atrocious".
We have increased everyone's speeds again. Residential and Business. Bob, Don and Dixie, if you are having issues, please call the office at 719-2943, or email email@example.com and we'll get it straightened out. (774-5780 for STT, firstname.lastname@example.org....and St. Johnian's just track down Tory in his black FJ Cruiser).
Mine keeps fluctuating (mid-island north shore STX). One minute it's 6.5 download, 2.0 up, a few minutes later it's 2.5 down and .45 up.
Broadband has been very responsive to my questions, by the way. I'm very happy with that aspect. I just wish we could find a way to keep speeds more consistent (which may be too much to ask from a technical standpoint given the challenges with the islands in general).
I'm very happy with Broadband VI. They are very responsive when I have an occasional problem.
I was surprised to clock such fast download speed today. I ran the speed test three times in the last hour and got the same speeds each time. I'm in Salt River, STX.
Thanks Bob, unfortunately those speeds will be scaled back soon.
We found a bug in our queueing / speed limiting program, which is leading to some of the issues people are seeing on this thread.
I got a 22Mbps speed test to Miami at a friends house over the weekend.....and he still found a way to give me grief that his upload was only 2Mbps 😉
My download speed is still crazy-fast.
I want THAT!
that's what we are working towards Bernie....we want it for you too.
exciting changes / upgrades coming....viNGN...new technologies.......it will happen.
Its pretty cool to think how far we've come......that our first high-speed service was 256kbps.....that was 10 years ago!
