    Default O.k, what on earth is up with my internet connection?

    Hello people, im getting very angry with Time Warner recently, I cannot load numerous sites up, including Newegg!! :mad::mad::mad::mad: Its constantly being reported as page cannot be displayed, however, others are using it with absolutely no problems whatsoever. Also, I did a speed test, as I say my general connectivity is around 500kb maximum now, when im paying for 10mb, but this is what I got.



    Can somebody please help me understand what on earth is going on. I just need my Newegg back for 2 more weeks, other sites, I can miss. As in 2 weeks, im changing ISPs, again

    Tracert's keep coming back with errors "time out" or something. I spoke with Time Warner, they told me its nothing to do with them, and I have to wait it out. But I dont want to wait any longer, its been days!!

    so your paying for a 10mb connection and only getting 360 kbs upload? i would have to say it is a problem with your isp. personaly i would call them and bitch at them till they changed something or sent someone out.

    Its common for isp providers to misadvertise your true connection speed. Another common practice is to throttle your upload speed so it makes it harder to use P2P sharing. Basically youl never get 10mb at peak times if ever. Its about time these isp providers penalisd for false advertisement.

    alot of them will advertise up to a certain speed so they can keep the bitching to a minimum. But rarely will you hit that speed. i switched from bell sympatico to a small company that uses bell lines and i am saving 30$ a month on my internet.when companies get too greedy time to kick them to the curb because someone will always take our business.

    Cool there,
    You can update your connection speed using free internet boosters available on net. You can also get to know about your internet speed here http://www.ip-details.com/internet-speed-test/ . Its as easy as you enter your IP address that you get to know the speed of your connection.
    Cheers!
