You internet speeds are slow by design.

Spillway cable advertises but does not honor the bandwidth agreement.

You see, here it is in a nutshell.
The bandwidth needed to live up to the connection speeds Mark Greens company (Spillway Cable vision) advertises, he would have to increase HIS bandwidth, which " serves you."

Does that make sense?

Increasing his bandwidth costs money and cuts into his profit, which has steadily increased by feeking all of you, by not giving you what you paid for , umm, for over ten years.

Spillway cable splits your bandwidth between all of you who are subscribed to this worthless provider.
This why , when the kids get home from school and start playing on the NET, you have slower connection speeds than an analog modem. It's called a " bottleneck." And sometimes , your internet just doesn't work at all. That happens quite frequently.
It's all because Mr. Green does not and has no intention of expanding his bandwidth ( at a cost) thus cutting into his profit margin by feeking you. For well over 10 years.

This would explain a lot of things over the last 10 years, " would it not?

Does that make sense?

Get wind of this and let the storm brew until someone starts asking questions. Like the public service commissioner.

I smell a law suit.
Class action.

every internet provider currently sells more bandwidth than they can cover.

How about finding more shit to bitch about! Really, if this is your biggest concern in life then you may need more things to do with your time. Oh, and "you" is addressing whoever is bitching about the fact their Internet is not fast enough. I have an idea move out of the area so you don't have the option of this particular service! Please and thank you!

First of all I am not employed by this company. I guess that is just an assumption of yours. Hopefully you know what it means when people make "ass"umptions.

Only get Hughes as a last resort. Try AT&T...

Can someone on Spillway do a test on speedtest.net and post the results here?

ping - 45 ms
download - 1.11 Mbps
upload - 0.77 Mpbs

On a good day, you can download at about 185 KB/sec

That's... Pathetic. I will say, however, that the upload is better than AT&T. Where are you located?

Since Spillway has a monopoly on the area AT&T, Cox, and all other providers are not allowed in. There is a solution. If you have a cell phone with unlimited internet you can tether the phone to your computer using a USB cable. I do this and have lightening speed. About 100 times faster than crappy Star Telephone ever offered (and about $80 cheaper). It's about three times the speed Spillway provides. If you have a laptop you can always get a connect card or use the mobile hotspot feature.
Until the people do away with these crappy companies and go with other options (Dish and Direct TV) they will continue to screw you. I left Spillway in 2003 for Direct TV when they upgraded channels and decided against Comedy Central, E! and several other because they were too profane. Yet they carried BET and played uncensored hardcore rap videos. makes perfect sense doesn't it?

I've been very upset that they took the Soap Channel from us. I've been an avid Soap Watcher for a long time. A lot of us have to work for a living to pay our bills; including Spillway Cable. It was convenient for the working class people to watch our Soaps at night; while winding down for the evening. Now; I miss them everyday!!! I've burned up 3 VCRs over the years taping them daily!!! It's too time consuming to tape them daily!!! It was so much easier; to just watch or listen to them at night!!!

SPILLWAY: Please bring back our SOAP CHANNEL !!!!! We pay enough every month for that Channel !!! I've talked to so many people about the Soap Channel and they feel the same as I do. They all said; they too; have voiced their opinion to Spillway about the Soap Channel and of course; as usual; it fell upon deaf ears!!! The prices keep going up; the favorable channels keep disappearing; and the Internet is slow as hell !!! Give Us A Break!!!!!

Oh, and btw, if they were NOT the ONLY cable in the area, I WOULD NOT be using them. DSL from Star is slower than Star, but Star is by no means the fastest. AND, the service may go down at ANY time. They do not keep their systems up to date nor do they give quick service. They also do maintenance and NEVER let anyone know. It would be nice, then I would not have to cancel an online payment and reapply it since the system went down just when I was clicking the send button.

Only thing is Rose, is when I am paying $157 a month for Cable and Internet and they provide about 50% of the service they advertise, something is wrong. Cable is real screwy right now. No anolag channels, so anyone with just basic or advanced basic had NO cable service. Can't see anything. The digital channels are fuzzy at most. Internet is supposed to be 3.0 Mbps download and 1.5 upload. Mine is .85 Mbps down and .75 up. That is half of what I am supposed to get for the money I pay. So, should I just pay HALF my bill for the month or just shove the money in their hand and let it go. I think NOT!!
