Spectrum 60mbps

Recommended Posts

Nemesis, are you wired or wireless when you check? For me, when I check on my computer that is wireless...I get 30-40 down. But when I check on my Xbox One which is wired...I get 68 down. I also have Spectrum. But, since I switched from TWC to Spectrum the speeds seem to fluctuate a lot more. I've checked and sen it in the single digits at times. I think about calling them then, but haven't yet cause I'm sure they won't do anything.

So I have the 60mbps plan and have the netduma congestion set to 100% download and 20% upload.

It's Charter in disguise LOL,I have had Charter / Spectrum for the last 7-8 years and I can say in my experience (just my experience) as some may have great success with them but I have not.In my neighborhood it is dramatically over saturated as they are the only game in town for any kind of speed, no Comcast,no fiber, no nothing.The only other option is AT&T and where I live it's ADSL 12 /1 and don't get me wrong I used that as a dedicated gaming line for a year and then after the introductory price of 21.99 a month, the price went to 79.99 plus 8 dollars a month for rental of there modem/router combo which you have to use.And those speeds are not enough to run a 3600 sq ft house not including the basement.So I had to get rid of them or should I say I chose to get rid of them and I miss my dedicated gaming line but I digress...

 

So I've been back on Spectrum for about 2 weeks now and I can say I enjoy the speeds for downloads etc but cable lacks the stability that online gaming needs IMO.But I will say that they seemed to improve over the last year in regards to customer service.I know they have acquired TWC and are putting a ton of money into their lines and have fiber available all around me and soon to my neighborhood but they have a business package also that they didn't before and that could be an option and there isn't much of a price difference but you have to use their equipment,which I won't do as their modems they use all have the Intel Puma 6 chipset which will cause you nothing but issues,Buck and MoD have been thru this issue with Comcast with the same results.

 

But I wouldn't hesitate to call them is something isn't right but remember all they are required by law is to get you 80 -85 percent of your speeds and that's considered ok due to all the other variables with regards to the internet,inother words they have lots of loopholes.But I would still call if you have any issue and see what they can do.

I'll recheck my speeds again later today...but this morning when I checked it wirelessly with my computer...it was 12 down and .25 up. I can't believe wireless would kill it that much. It fluctuates so darn much. Makes me wonder how do I set up the speed on my router since it's never the same. Reactive or Premptive? Sometimes it's above 50, often it isn't.

 

I guess I need to wire my computer in...I don't have a long wire currently though. Are the Xbox speed test diagnostics reliable?

Would leave it as reactive so you're never hindering yourself. I wouldn't go by the console speed tests, PC wired speed test would always be best.

 

Check your on the least congested WiFi channel in your area as well to rule that out.

I got spectrum 60 mbps speeds and 4 mbps down but when i run a speed test im getting like 65 down and almost 6 up

Yeah that's about the same exact speeds I get also on the same package, speeds fine just the quality I'm not impressed with at least in my area.

Will do Fraser. If I can't get a consistent speed...what do you suggest I put for my speed in the router? Should I put high at 68 or low at 30 or somewhere in the middle?

Sounds good Fraser...and if that average turns out to be 40 or so...you still would recommend me using the Reactive setting right?...so I don't limit anything.

Well if it was 40 the congestion control would always base it on that unless you had the anti-flood at 100% & reactive. So yes keep reactive and whenever you're not gaming/heavily using the internet put anti-flood to 100 then you'll get whatever the speeds are you have at that time.

Yeah kevo I'll give them that, they do deliver the advertised speeds and above.I think since Spectrum took over they are trying to improve their service on my street they have red and yellow flags and trucks in just about every yard.I live on a lake and it's a dead end street with only 10 houses or the right side and 10 houses on the left sides you can get a pretty good view of what's going on in the neighborhood  :) And I talked to one of the guys last week and they are running all new line in my area (was hoping for fiber) and doing the same in a large area which is great if it helps with the jitter on the line as I'm hoping it will.

 

As much as I don't like Spectrum as you know their known for a lot of jitter being a cable ISP,but I think that they are trying to improve as they use to be the only game in town but now there are other ISP's coming into the area.Which hopefully will make them step up their game and I notice it really depends on your location people like you and I have issues and people like looney have a great connection and no issues...SMH

I totally agree with you on that. In terms of speeds they over deliver. I'm located in Queens ,New York  and the past few weeks they been busy setting new wiring in my area. Im hoping some good is coming out of that.
