Re: Slow d/l speeds, Cable modem. Earthlink (repost)
About a week ago I switched from RR to Earthlink. It's the same cable infrastructure, same SB5101 Cable Modem, same 7Mbps service plan.
Speedtest.net remains rather consistent at just under 7Mbps down as shown above.
The Speed test under DSLR Tools (Java) is 50/50 where sometimes the speed is comparable to Speedtest, sometimes the down speed is less than 4Mbps. Similar with MySpeed.visualware tests where the results vary widely. Under both the QOS MOS rating is sometimes 2.5, sometimes the MOS score is 4.0.
VOIP doesn't sound like I'm having quality issues.
TWC/RR was always consistent with these tests.
Anyone have a similar experience since it makes no sense to me that the service should be any different. Heck, TWC is even handling the billing -on the same billing format.
