What's your connection speed?

Recommended Posts

I had wireless internet, bought a new router (Apple Airport Extreme) then wired my connection to my computer. It worked great, amazing response times, no buffering to the point I could play 4K videos on YouTube without it stopping.

Now suddenly, within the last week, my internet has slowed. Pictures take longer to load, and sometimes watching 1080p videos on YouTube it'll stop to buffer, I never had this issue before.

I was averaging 18mpbs up 5mpbs down with 11 ping or so, now I just tested it and it's at 8.34mpbs up and 0.96mpbs down with ping at 47. Last week it went as low as 4mpbs down with ping well above 70.

Pls help.

it is probably your ISP reducing your data speeds, because you've used more data than they would like. Comcast is famous for that.

if its not that, I'd consider a new modem.

also, those airport extreme routers suck.

18ish doesn't make it substantially better anyway, how much are your folks paying for the connection anyway?

Portugal might be ass fuck town in many ways, but at least back home basic service is a guaranteed 30mb download.

I want my 120mb connection back ffs.

We pay $170 or so for internet, phone, and television. Yeah it's severely overpriced and shitty slow but what else are we gonna do?

I think the wire in the back of my modem leading to the router was a little loose, pushed it in all the way and it instantly got better.

Fuckkkkkk $170. I hope you're getting premium porn tv channels for that sort of money.

Nah they even charge for the game show channel now

has managed to improve considerably over the past few years. not sure by how much so I might have to reference the old topic. I shall go and research on igta and come and edit this later

Edit: it appears that it hasnt improved by much since 2010 but it was much worse prior to that

Ahh how everything changes, sufficient wifi speeds, hits 38mb/s on the wired connection downstairs. Bliss
