I'm paying for 20Mbps. Why am I getting this? This wasn't a problem until maybe two or three weeks ago.

>>28226076 I could see 18, 16 or even 15Mbps with a 20Mbps plan but 0.6 is absolutely ridiculous. I'm the only one on the internet in my house so it's not like there's a lot of people using bandwidth. This is complete bullshit. >>28226098 I shouldn't be anywhere close to my bandwidth cap. I think Comcast is 250GB/mo and I definitely haven't downloaded that much this month. Maybe in September I pushed the cap but not in October.

>>28226139 It hasn't been that bad, for a long time I used to get the advertised speeds. I probably started having minor problems in August this year but they have been getting progressively worse.

>>28226583 I can just replace the modem. Comcast doesn't require you to use their modem you know. I just don't know what modem to buy. I already have a 54Mbps Netgear router that Comcast didn't supply which is sufficient for my needs.

>>28226603 Yes. PS: this is exactly what I am paying for, ~80$ a month uncapped, the people I live with need a landline for some fucking reason so that's bundled in with it. I did use to have ~20ms ping all the way to chicago, don't know what happened to that.

Since your upload is not affected check your filters and reset router. Go through tests to check all devices connected.

>>28226742 I did reset my router and modem. It looked like it fixed things as web pages briefly loaded faster but things slowed right down again and speed test is once again <1Mbps. I legitimately have no idea why upload is not affected though. I do remember 3Mbps being around my normal upload.

>>28226674 DSL requires the phones to be on filters if you don't use them it will seriously fuck your speed sometimes they can die or the connectors get loose it happened to me. you can test this by temporarily removing all your phones.

Is it true that you can raise your speeds by fucking with the modem and that's why they come with no screws?

>>28226801 Did you factory reset your router? So it's back to default. Also unplug everything and connect your PC directly to the router and test everything like that.

>>28226847 No, I just unplugged it for about a minute or so. It's hard to connect my PC to the router as it is downstairs and I am up but I can if things don't improve.

OP make sure there is no filter between your router and the socket everything else goes through a filter.

>>28226879 You gotta factory reset, then just put in your details to connect and see if it changes. When I say directly, just have it so nothing else is connected or between your PC and the router. Try a laptop or phone over wifi if you can.

>>28227031 You sure you don't mean the modem? Because I already have a 54Mbps router which I'd like to think is sufficient for my ~20Mbps internet with me being the sole user.

>>28226711 Tis true, I have been told by Centurylink employees that the company does not give a fuck about what you do with your internet. Mediacom needs to take lessons from this.
