I use a cable hookup from Time Warner and i get it that I am sharing the pipe with every Tom, Dick and Harry and my MB will degrade as others come online. Only recently have I begun to do a fair bit of scalping so I called TW to find out if for a modest price I could upgrade my service. My service was: 15 MB Down, 1.5 MB up. When I tested it an hour ago at SpeedTest I got: 4.22 Down, 0.74 Up, Ping 21 ms and Jitter 4ms. They told me for an extra $10 a month I could go to 30/5 which of course I did. At their instruction I rebooted the modem and then I tested again. I got; 3.78 Down, 0.47 Up no change in ping or jitter. I want to discourage anyone from believing that I know what any of these numbers actually mean ... I do not. But I do know they are headed south not north as they should. The good news (if I can call it that) is that in my quiet residential neighborhood everyone is at work during market hours (these numbers are a Saturday afternoon) and the numbers will be much better. BTW ... Fios has not yet reached where I live or I would switch in a heartbeat. if I need more speed to scalp will a load balancer (maybe a cheap Peplink) and adding DSL to the cable boost my capacity considerably and also add redundancy seamlessly? Are there other reasonably priced solutions? Is there a higher priced spread that is only a couple of hundred more per month or are we talking big money/ I am not trying to avoid doing the legwork; I am hoping to find out what direction to march in. Thanks in advance.
