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?

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.
