Didn't they put a 5 gig cap on the wireless broad band cards? I bet your @ or near that cap and they've slowed you down as a favor.

That's gotta piss you off. Maybe it has something to do w/ high network activity and wanting everyone to have "enough" bandwidth.

all of your ping times are ridiculous. no wonder you are getting poor throughput. lot of latency there.

and the throttling issue is new to me. according to my dd-wrt router logs, i pulled down 36 gigabytes last month. and this month i'm already at 25 gig. i stream netflix and pandora all the time. i'd ditch verizon if they throttled my bandwidth.

i'm still pulling down good bandwidth over the wireless and symmetrical 25/25 over the ethernet.

Mine has been for 3+ months already. My 2.0 works fine with the 25 meg service though (32 down, 2 up usually).

Raptor 700R
No fast cars though

So a few weeks back my speed went to absolutely nothing, and unable to stream video's, music, games, etc. However, browsing pages that do not require any bandwith run lightning fast still. Pages like craigslist, and web forums without excessive advertisements load instantly, unless there is a stream or picture loading in another browser obviously.

So I call alltel/verizon tech support and I get the normal run around thru 9 tech departments(thank god they dont outsource)for them to tell me there are no problems with my speeds and that it is unusual to get more than 400kbps. I personally have been seeing 1200-2000kbps for the most part of the last year.

So tonight I get curious and run some diagnostics thru dslreports.com. The tests all time out(just like streaming files). The network diagnostics tool (http://ndt.iupui.donar.measurement-lab.org:7123/) tells me excessive packet queueing and it then times out.

Here I start a stream from a site that usually gives me no problems. You can see it spikes up and then levels out with what I can assume is a blockage of packets(Queing?)


So here it is a short time later, no activity.



So I leave the stream and go to another seemingly high bandwith page and it is back to working again like magic.
