In reality, since they're factually oversubscribed, it usually averages about 250Kbps. If I upgrade, I still receive roughly the same 250K. So I kept the cheapest plan. I keep them because they don't play any games regarding data caps. There aren't any. Of course, why would there be? I would be ecstatic if someone offered 12Mbps for even $100/mo without cable or any other service. Sign me up.

While I do agree with the 'I should receive what I pay for' mindset, I just can't understand why people get angry about 12+Mbps. Limit the kids' Netflix time, and tell little Johnny to quit doing so much 'homework' and even 12 can do anything you ask it to.


That sounds pretty grim.

Company has spectrum in NY. It’s quite fast. We pay for 30 and get 100


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

Have you tried a direct cable connection from the cable modem to the laptop? Take the router out of the equation.

Is wifi on the laptop turned off, are you sure the laptop isn't using wifi instead of the wired ethernet connection?

What makes you think the connection is coming from Georgia? That could just be the location of the speed test server you're connecting to.

I'm also using the Arris tm1602, that modem should have absolutely no issues with 100Mbps. I'm using the same modem, and have the same internet package with Spectrum.

I also have to wonder if a windows update is running in the background.

Although a good idea, the Arris M1602 only has one ethernet connection on the back, which is connected to my router, which is capable of the adverised 100Mbps.

The laptop wifi is turned off, and the laptop is cable connected to the router.

Anytime I perform the speed test, it always says "Sugar Hill, GA" for the other connection. I thought speed tests were supposed to be between your computer/ home and local server. I haven't researched it enough to see if this can be specified. As previously metioned, I have cable quality issues on some channels, more than others. I have spoken to the local cable office regarding this, and I was told that they get some channel feeds via satellite, and some via internet.

Something could still be wrong with the router. I'd just temporarily disconnect the ethernet cable from the router, and plug it directly into the laptop to do a speed test. Spectrum would ask you to do the same thing.

Having bad internet is the equal of having a bad phone line in the old days.
Meaning, something is wrong in your area, home or equipment settings depending if it is just you or if it includes others nearby.

We have Spectrum and even though I HATE them for the retarded priced of $66 a month, our internet speed is higher then advertised almost all the time, if not all the time.
Usually never less then 100 down and 12 up and sometimes over 110 down and the same slow 12 up.

As a bonus, our electric company is running fiber and will be available around summer for $49.95 100 up and 100 down.
