Internet speed

I have FiOS and just took the verizon.com/uptospeed test todetermine why my computer is slow, and to my surprise....my speed was slower then the 25Mbps that I pay for each month. How can my internet service (medium speed) with verizon FiOS be slower then the (low speed) service I had with Comcast? Coomcast's computer speed was very fast. Since my contract is up with Verizon, I will be going back to Comcast. By the way, Verizon has the longest hold time to speak with a customer service rep then any other utility company I have ever been in contact with.

Re: Internet speed

Have you done any sort of troubleshooting to figure out why your speed is low? What result did you get? Is it wired or wireless?

Re: Internet speed

I have done ever type of troubleshooting available, but Verizon don't know why my internet speed is low.  As I statetd before, I took Verizon's spped test and my internet speed was slower then the service I pay for each month.  I have both wire and wireless.  I never had this problem with Comcast...my interst service was lightening fast.  But i found the soluation...go back to Comcast!!!!

On the wired computer, what result did you get?

Re: Internet speed

My internet speed was much slower on the wired; around 17 Mbps according to Verizon's speed test.

Re: Internet speed

can you do it again on the wired, and then after you get your speedtest result - there should be a link that says show analysis or something like that.  

 

cut and paste that info here.
