Gigabit speeds vary wildly
I live in Worcester MA. I am on the gigabit plan. My speeds are ranging from 940 down to 100mebait. It is not my signal levels or my equipment. This morning I did a speedtest and got 943 down. I just did one tonight and am getting 137 down. The speed test I am doing this to is a Charter server within the Oxford headend. I can see the speed go up to 940 but it never stays there. It always comes down. Rarely it will max out at 940. Is this a limitation of the network? I used to get 40 up now it's at 35 up.
I know the line can do a giga. I was downloading files last night at 111MB/s. It works but it just seems like the line cannot sustain the speeds. Something is throttling it. My equipment is multiple known brand new good Intel gig cards and different cat6 cabling. And the techs Checking my signal levels. For whatever reason, the line speed for me are all over the place. Just did another test and got 802 down and 32 up. It used to peg solid at 40. Now that is varies.
