Poor FIOS performance in Annapolis MD

Message 1 of 3

Hi - I recently moved from Columbia MD to Annapolis MD - FIOS in both locations.

FIOS performance in Columbia was excellent but FIOS in Annapolis is poor.


I have been in Annapolis for just over a year now and am fed up to the point where I am actually thinking of

going back to Comcast! I know, what a sad situation. 


Its not the wifi and interference from electronic devices since I checked with both wireless and wired connections plus different routers. Session dropouts, not able to use any kind of streaming apps - the situation just keeps getting worse.


Has anyone figured out a solution (other than comcast)?

thanks - pd

LC - thanks for the reply. I have been through the pages and have tried the  Broadband Speed Test and  FiOS Speed Optimizer. Walked through the self-diagnosis (router reboot etc). I wanted to try everything I could before initiating a formal repair request but it looks like that is my next choice. It looks like verizon is performing traffic shaping but it is misconfigured.
