Not getting 7Mbps

Message 1 of 18
(1,370 Views)

On the one hand, I am glad to hear so many people are having exactly the same problems with Verizon Internet as I have been having for the "past four years"!!!! I pay almost $90/month for getting 0.768Mbps instead of the 7Mbps that I am supposed to get. They tell me my neighbourhood does not allow faster internet. Well, I live 15 minutes from the US Capitol and four blocks from Verizon. If I can't get good Internet in the heart of the United States, where else should I go??

Anyway, I am not going to repeat all the details of my ordeal with Verizon that have already been said here by other people. After hours of phone conversations, three technicians... etc etc... and with my problem continuing, I am a bit lost as to what to do next. I filed a complaint with the FCC.. should I now consider legal action? I work from home and not having high speed Internet is starting to have an effect. Any suggestions welcome!!!

1: A Speed Test during the morning hours (10AM) and during evening hours (7PM).

2: Your modem's Transceiver Statistics. There are guides online that can tell you how to get them, or I can tell you how to get them if you're unsure. Just list what model modem you have in this case.

3: When the slow speeds typically occur (All the time, During Peak usage periods, aka Night time).

4: Your Operating System

1: I will run a Test this evening and tomorrow and will get back to you with results.

2: My modem: Westell-D90-W327...Not sure how to get the Transreceiver Statistics.

3: Slow speeds occurs at all times.

4: Mac OS X 10.6.8

Here go the complete results of my speed Tests as requested (see below for the Morning test first, followed by the Evening test). Like I mentioned earlier, I am not sure how to get the Transreceiver Statistics. Some guidance would be helpful. Thanks.

It's all good about missing the post; Not a problem. The speed tests you've posted up do indicate some sort of problem. Seems to be a bit of latency involved and obviously some dipping of speeds during the night.

 

To get the Transceiver Statistics from the Westell, do the following based on what you see after clicking on this link: http://192.168.1.1/

 

If you see a Blue and White Westell page, mouse over the Troubleshooting menu and then mouse over DSL. Choose Transceiver Statistics (or DSL Stats), or you can try visiting http://192.168.1.1/transtat.htm . You should see the Transceiver Statistics page. Paste this information up.

 

If you see a Verizon branded Red and Black page, click on System Monitoring, Advanced Monitors, and then choose Transceiver Statistics. You can also try visiting http://192.168.1.1/transtat.htm . Paste up the contents of this page for us.

 

If you are prompted by the Westell for login information, try the following if you haven't already set your own login.

 

admin/password

admin/password1

admin/admin

admin/admin1

admin/modem serial number

Your Verizon Username and Password (for the Master account).

Advanced Monitors is found in the Left Hand side Navigation on the System Monitoring page. Pressing Yes past the prompt you get about Advanced Users and choosing Transceiver Statistics will get you where I need data from.

That would be it 🙂 Verizon can do a lot better than that with your line. It should be running at 7Mbps. With a bit of work on the line to isolate noise a bit more, it could probably do 10Mbps. The upload margins aren't being reported for some reason, but you should be able to go to the full 864kbps rate.

 

I'd get on the phone with them and ask them to rebuild your provisioning profile. When the call is done, it needs to be at 7616/864, or right around that range or the job has not been done. Unless there's something I don't know about a software-based provisioning system that Verizon has, they can basically kick your speeds right to the point where they should be on the phone. A phone rep might not have that ability, but they do have contacts to people who can on the spot.
