Out of nothing but curiosity, tonight I ran a speed test - many actually. About 3 months ago, they gave me a special deal on their Burst internet upgrade. I tried it and it moved my speed need from about 18 to 25Mbps (that's download speed) but, honestly, since I'm not working, I really don't need speed consistently and it cost an extra $10 a month so I said no thanks and canceled. That was about a week before this latest festuche. I went back down to about 18 or 19 - that's on my laptop over wifi. And it's fine.
Tonight, I'm consistently - using various tests - getting 38 and 39Mbps download speed!!!! I don't know if some tech guy did me a giant favor or it's a fluke or my new router spits magic beans or what but wow. Really.
