Very slow D/L speeds

Message 1 of 7
(9,985 Views)

Ok after months of get no where support My download speeds are less than 1/2 of what I pay for. I subscribe to the 20/5, but I'm only running at 6-7/5! I've used everything verizon has suggested the optimizer, rebooting modems, replacing modems, they connected to my computer to check settings and nothing comes up. I wouldn't be SOO upset if I were a 10/5 subscriber, but if it is not fixed by end of contract it's back to cable I go {please keep it relevant} Well you know where I'm going.

Have you tried another location on speedtest? I have noticed some places I get 1/2 the speed of others. And the closest place is not always the best.

Have you tried with another PC or anything? I've seen this a lot with other customers where they get the upload and not the download that well...I've heard of NIC card settings being a culprit in most cases or some kind of software.

when you are trying the speed tests, is it a wired connection to the router, or wireless?  wireless is not capable of wired speeds, as you know.  Also, if more than one computer is on, wired or wireless, that may decrease your speeds.   are u using Vista ?  running the optimzer on Vista can be counter-productive.  If it is Vista you must get the microsoft patch. go to ms.com and search for 'fios and vista' to find the patch.
