Hello guys, im new here.
I got fios internet this morning and i already have problem with the speed.
I subscribed for a 150Mb and im getting a 20/25 Mb tops in down if im lucky.
I already contacted the verizon helper by chat and he/she told me to wait 2 hrs(5 hrs ago) to switch the attual connection 20Mb to the connection requested by me (150Mb) , (this is the first time i hear such thing but still..)
so, after 5 hrs the connection is still the same.
Ive been trying to test it for hrs, using different websites/servers, downloading isos,games etc..
this is what i get with speedtest
Thank you in advance.
for some reason the images haven't uploaded yet, so i can't see them. up until recently there were few test servers that could handle over 100mb tests. so the speedtest.net website didn't get the update yet but, if you are right. on 150 you should at least get 150 if not 155, like most people. did they give you the double antenna red band, router? the model is mi424 rev I
in order to get over 100mb, you also have to be hooked up to the service terminal with ethernet, so make sure that they set you up with an ethernet cord that goes into the ethernet WAN slot.
you should have a gigabit nic card on your machine.
do one more test at http://speedtest.verizon.net (without the fios 300) and then there is a little analysis or details link. make sure to click that link and copy and paste those results too.

model is MI424-WR REV F
and yes im connected by ethernet cable (i dont usually use wifi cos i want to get all the speed)
and on the verizon test (w/o 300) it doesnt start, it keep saying: "testing in progress" .
My experience is that problem is caused by not having Java enabled or installed in your browser.

I tried to contact the verizon chat support again..He told me he and his team were working on it ,but after 10 mins ta-daahh..connection down.
so, This is the real status about my internet speed:
speedtest.net says I have 22 in down and 21 in up
verizon test says i have 50, sometime 60 in down and 60 sumtin in up
other online speed tests say ive 20 in down and 20 sumtin in up
on the debian website i keep getting around 20Mb
im gonna wait till tomorrow to see what happens, then ill decide what
i cant pay 150 bucks for a 20-25Mb

that 8192 number looks incredibly low to me, you might in fact need to optimize . The half duplex discovery on that test should show full duplex as well. if they haven't tried a new router then that is one step (you replace those at the local verizon stores), possibly a bad Network terminal, or further up on their end of the equation. They would need to send a tech out if you have those settings optimized, tried a new router and it's showing half duplex still. It could even be the ethernet cord itself (I've seen wierder things)
most people on that plan get their subscribed bandwidth so try to get the router replaced and maybe a tech visit.
They are going to replace the router next monday.
still..its not a router or ethernet card problem ( I got 70Mb all the time (75/35 Mb subscription) in NY with rcn using this laptop)
I think its something else because every night , dunno why i get 5Mb or less in down.
This is what i got tonight.
