Anyone having speed issues this week?

Mine has been almost at Dial-up speed all week
I called them and they said it was due to the holiday
(Martin Luther King Day) but its Friday now and
still slow as a snail..

Just wondering if its just me, or is anyone else
experiencing this?

Thanks

I've got Windstream too, but I have their highest speed package, and I live in Barbourville, regardless of what the little thingie says below my name. Anyways, I've not had any speed issues this week. However, what I'd recommend is using a program called CCleaner to check and clean your registry, which believe it or not, if it's full of errors can affect the speed of your pc and how it reacts to the internet.

But then too, if there's alot of ppl around you that have it also, or if you have an unsecured router, you may have others bogging down your speed.

I've had connection issues with my router for over a year now. Sometimes have to call them up and let them reprogram over phone. On average once a month.

Also, my house was built when cordless landline phones were a new-fangled gadget, so multiple outlets messes with broadband signal, so keep used outlets to minimum.

There is DSLAM or aggregator out in Washington County Kentucky that handles our connections once it leaves the Barbourville area.
Official response from the engineers above Tier 2, after nearly 2 weeks of going higher up the chain we have the response from the Engineers in Washington County. Due to FCC approval and a few other things it will take 60-90 days to resolve our latency issues.
Time to abandon Windstream, as it will be April or May before you can get above 50kbps

Satellite internet is only good if you're not expecting ping times from services like games. If you're going to game at all, satellite is horrendous.

Again, I have no issues with mine, just checked it via Speedtest.net and I'm running at 10 mbps, and that's with my desktop, laptop and tablet connected and doing various things. Perhaps it's just randomly doing it to people at random times.

Granted, I normally get around 12 mbps, but still, with that much running, I'm not going to squibble about 2 mbps...

They said it was a problem in the barbourville area. Didn't tell me when it could be fixed. I have the highest speed you can get and it's awful right now. Might as well not even have Internet at the rate it's going.

Guess its just effecting certain people in the barbourville area, I get around 50kbs during the day, and sometimes it will peak out at 500kbs late at night (but not for long). Oh well guess we wait, and see how much they actually refund us for lack of service.
