I've been battling with Comcast about my 50Mbps internet connection. My average download speed is around 2.5 mB/s. Sometimes I can't use Skype video calling or stream an HD YouTube video when it gets really bad. Comcast has sent 6 people out and they have all told me that it isn't a problem with their system. All they do is go to www.speedtest.net and it shows 47Mbps connection DL.
How can I truly test the internet download speed at my house. Does the Upload on a server's end affect my download speed on my end. If so, shouldn't websites have enough bandwidth output to make me download at my theoretical max that I am paying for?
I have sudden link cable and right now I am downloading files at a rate of 15-35kbs. I am pretty much ready to yank my hair out... Sad thing is they were just here yesterday to fix it. When they left I downloaded a game off steam, and received 975kbs-2.1mbs DL connection, but today its basically not doing zip. I pay the fastest internet speed they offer, but I am getting worse connection speeds then when I had 56k.
For this problem, contact the Internet service provider,
