: Rogers Bandwidth Speeds

Can the users of Rogers Hi-speed pls post their speeds?? I'm supposed to have ultra hi speed, and I had noticed of late that my bandwidth was p a i n f u l l y s l o w when I would upload. Using the activity monitor, I noticed some rates which were near the floor :eek: somewhere below 5.0 kbps and those were spikes! Took me for ever to upload somewhere around 800 Kbs. :rolleyes:

So, I am a little concerned, and before I get in the phone and raise my voice, just want to see if anyone esle has seen some bottlenecking.

I know something is up: 1728.8 Kbps downloads, and my upload was somewhere in the sub 100KBps - this is what i rated. This is so low.

H!

I don't know why, but since I see Shaw results above, I feel...compelled...to add my Sympatico High Speed (not Ultra High Speed) results; iBook G4 running Airport Extreme via DSL modem to D-Link wired router to Airport Express--whew.

That was kinda good to do because it's often difficult to know sometimes...
Especially when all networks and wireless and browsers and the like are all chunking away.
We also had a problem for a while there with no wep security on the wireless router. That was a concern for the longest time. Urgh! The flattie just flew into it!?
Fixed now.

Umm. Those numbers are in line with the normal hi-speed, not extreme. If you are paying for extreme, you might want to look in to that.
