Usually I’m Citywest’s #1 fanboy (I really believe they are a good company), but tonight, wow is the internet ever slow. I’ve just been doing basic surfing, nothing more than 100k bursts, but I can’t maintain much more than a 50k download speed. I did a bit of testing, and it seems to be all sites, not just a couple. Anyone seeing that tonight (Monday Nov 8th)?
Unfortunately most of the stuff that interests me is off the Prince Rupert backbone.
1.3 OUCH! MOTHER FUCKING GAY ASS!! that blows
Here is mine tho, Slow tonight ish.
I’ve notice discrepancies with my internet connection for the last week or so. I am a full time student that has multiple online interactions with Instructors & Peers alike and connection speed / stability are important.
Browsing the net seems delayed, with 2 to 3 (sometimes 4-5) seconds in delay of the browser actually rendering the website. Speedtest.net does the usual stuff, Pingtest.net (don’t really use, but showing optimal stats to a BC server…)
I have 6 meetings over the 5 weekdays every week and as I said, the last week have been terrible for me. One of my instructors was in the middle of lecturing our class about CSS implementation and overall codes of our website when I continuously got disconnected. My local network was fine it did not crash, nothing outside Rupert would come up…
I think I should contact Citywest tomorrow as I have another meeting @ 8am and I have a feeling the stability I’ve seen over the past week hasn’t changed at all.
Meh =, I think Citywest is raging me
It has been nothing shy of horrible the last few days.
For the last year I’ve been having internet troubles - turns out it was the modem. Getting disconnected all the time all day. We got a new modem and it worked great. But now we’ve seen two power outages in the past 3 days (Sunday and Wednesday Morning) and yeah, things are just as crappy as before.
Hopefully this doesn’t persist.
For $60/month, you can download stuff and watch HD video streams like a boss. Plus I get to pay $30 for the first 6 months which is pretty awesome.
