For about a month now I am getting about 1 third the speed I am subscribed to. I am subscribed to 3360 Kbits/sec by 864 Kbits/sec. Late nights and early morning it is close to that speed but after about 3 pm pacific I get less than a third sometimes and my IP gets routed to Wichita, KS. I live in CA so routing my IP from CA to KS increases my ping from about 59 to 230ms.
After 3 pm I an no longer able to watch videos listen to music and even just browsing the net is a pain.
I called Verizon, the rep couldn't help me he said he would call me the next day and never heard from him again. I really don't want to call back since it took about 2 hours to actually get someone on the line, about 3 hours from him to tell me he couldn't help and never got the phone call back I was told I would get.
Current Test Resluts:
It is not too bad atm but if i test agin about 4 pm tomorrow it would be half that.
Forgot to mention I have a Westel 327w modem
