New Spectrum GIG no where near 940 Mbps
I had the new Spectrum GIG service installed today in my NYC apartment, and my Speedtests from many, many different speed test services are coming in 250 Mbps - 550 Mbps at best.
Background: I am an IT professional myself.
I am testing directly off the Modem (Technicolor TC4400) using a Cat6 cable and my Ethernet jack is Gigabit rated.
The technition ran signal tests on my Coax and most of the channels were coming in at a healthy strength, though a few where coming in a little strong, which is a good thing. He ended up putting a splitter in the wall to dampen the signal, because apartnetly the GIG install policy wont let them complete the job unless all of the signals are in the Green. After that we re-ran the signal tests, and walla, all of the channels were now in the Green.
What does everyone think?
- Do I have a faulty modem?
- Should I remove the splitter he installed and let the stronger signals flow in?
- Do speedtest websites even support Gigabit testing reliably?
Thoughts on why Spectrum GIG is only a pinch faster then Ultra 300?
