    I called ATT customer service and they were shocked at how slow it was.  Tech coming tomorrow to repair.

    I became fed up with Comcast four months ago and switched to ATT.  The jury is still out.

    I was with Centurylink but had to switch. It was so slow it wouldn't even stream a movie. So I got basic cable and internet with Cox and this is the results.

    If you can get it in your area I would recommend Verizon Fios Internet.

    Standard DSL or fiber? If you are in their fiber area that is real slow. Regular DSL will vary by the plan you have. Did they give you the "if it ain't our fault we charge you money" speech?.

    Cad is right -- it really depends on what service you're buying (and where you live). 

    But really, that's pretty slow -- almost too slow to stream high quality video, but still fast enough for most things like email, web browsing and causal video watching.

    FWIW, here are my results with Spectrum in Tampa (and Netflix streaming downstairs in 1080p):
    437.78 Mbps download

    That's very slow by today's standards.  Hope they fix it. You will feel like you got a new computer with everything loading faster.

    In the new house our wiring was poor..  Spectrum sent a guy out and fixed it free of charge.  Had to install a relay booster.

    20 mbps is kind of the minimum for quality streaming and downloads.  More in theory is better but most devices cap out anyway.  I would aim for 20 mbps, if you can get it.

    Fiber was laid in our neighbor last year, so I am going to assume that's what I'm using.  ATT is coming for the repair between 12 and 2 today after which I will post new numbers.  

    Correct, "if it ain't our fault we charge you $99 for a service call."

    About the same time I changed to ATT I bought a new LG 65" OLED TV and the picture quality has never been good.  I think it will improve dramatically after the repair.

    Yeah 5 mbps won't produce a good picture.  I think Netflix, for 4k, recommends 20 mbps.  

    Edit
    25 mbps is their recommendation.  Higher speeds are only required if you are downloading large files, like 50 gb video games.

    Those are definitely not fiber numbers.

    The beauty of "ain't our fault" is it's difficult for you to prove unless you know .

    ATT fiber is 100mb minimum speed.

    ATT tech shows up, looks around, does some testing and he said because of the location of the modem, I'm getting poor coverage throughout the house.  He looks at my TV and wants to know if it's 4K, I cannot get a better picture because they don't offer 4K.  

    He says I'm stuck with slow internet speeds in my loft unless I buy an extender for $50.  I ask why didn't the installer does that when I changed to ATT five months ago, he has no answer.  It's really bad customer service, so I have to rethink and probably go back to Comcast.  

    Lack of competition in any marketplace means the customer is going to get screwed.

    They don't offer 4k?  4k isn't offered by them, but supported via bandwidth, which only needs to be 25 mbps.  Also is your signal low via the wireless router or is your internet slow at the source.  Meaning plug something directly into the modem via ethernet and measure the speed.  An extender won't increase speed, it increases signal.  Two different things.  My knee jerk reaction is the tech is a moron and has no clue what he is talking about.

    Plug your computer directly into your wireless router (via ethernet) and do speedtest again.  That should help us tell you what the real problem is.

    I'm glad I saw this thread.
    Reminded me to cancel cable, so finally cut the cord this morning. 
    Keeping internet (Spectrum) as there's nothing even close currently.  What a ripoff... $70/month.  But it's fast.

  • Mister-JrMister-Jr Posts: 27,763 AG
    I'll try plugging my laptop into the router and see what happens.  I suppose I spent $2,500 on a new LG 4K TV and would have been better off to spend $1,000 on an HD TV.   

    Modem location.  Tech says granite counter top blocks signals.

    just an idea... move that set up to a more open area.. the best set-up is wide open, least amount of walls/cabinets/etc that signal has to pass through the better. 
  • kellerclkellercl Posts: 6,700 Admiral
    If your laptop runs fast at the source you can either move the modem to an open area or buy an extender.
