I upgraded to 1.5 mbps two days ago, everything was activated but the issue still remains.
I've been having issues with my Internet speed for the last month. Prior to my speed issue, I was able to download pdf files, watch netflix online and youtube videos with no issue but now, I can't view anything or download without it taking a long time to load.
I've done the line tests, modem resets, tried a different modem/router, did cable/ethernet switch, scanned for viruses, did speed tests (which are always 0.10-0.30 mbps down) and have had a tech come out to test my line. I can get on the internet just fine and if I want to do basic surfing, it's fairly fast but I can't even watch a 20 second youtube video without it stopping and taking 3 minutes or more to load.
My modem is a Westel 7500 and it has been connected to a Windows 2000 system and the other two computers are connected wirelessly with one being a Windows XP and the other being a Windows 7.
Here are my transreceiver stats:
If you are having poor internet issues, its not due to your internet connection. If you look at your DSL speed, you're actually getting higher than you are supposed to. You are getting 1790 kbps which equals 1.790 mbps . The information is coming to your computer faster than it should, but your computer is fumbling with the data given to it. Best general advice I could give is to delete your temp internet files and other cache. If you are still experiencing problem, your going to need further computer troubleshooting help from someone with that type of knowledge. I wish you the best of luck tracking it down.
Can anyone help me?
Now if the connection speeds are .1-.3, then yes that is a Verizon slowdown. The reason I had said that it was an issue with the computer or browser is because you were saying the service was slow, but you were getting almost 2mbps speeds. Please let us know they outcome of your research ticket.
What research ticket? If you're referring to the ticket that the technician was suppose to send out this past Monday, nothing came of it since I'm still getting the same slow speed. Now, it's difficult to even load websites like verizon or even yahoo.
Here's another Verizon speed test that I just did:

I want to check the outcome of that research ticket. I have sent you a private message to get more information from you.
I sent it and as my connection is getting even slower. 0.08 download
I hate to say it, but what is Verizon doing setting your line to 1.5Mbps? If you fall under their new provisioning structure you should be running at 7-10Mbps down, 768kbps-1Mbps up. Granted you should be getting better performance out of a 1.5Mbps line, but this is one thing that should be addressed. With those statistics 1.5Mbps is unacceptable, along with 3Mbps.
The NDT test you've run seems to be suggesting a network-side problem that is causing slow speeds and packet loss. It's hard to say for sure if the problem is on Verizon's end since the results you get can be influenced by a bunch of other factors. If Anthony is unable to help you solve the issue, I can get you to someone who can see what the deal is and get it fixed. Just let me know.
