In the last 2 years with xnet, my broadband speed is constantly around 4mbps.

And today is my 2nd days with Slingshot "just broadband", and my speedtest result is under 1mbps.
and I have tried more than 10 times......
Yell

I know broadband speed do varies between different ISPs.

However why the gap is so big as I am still on FS/FS plans as before...
Surprised


Already feeling disappointed...

hellonearthisman: did you change you dns settings?


I didnt configure any dns setting and I am quite sure the modem find out the right dns when connected.

The speed is OK in the afternoon and very bad during 7pm to 9pm.

I am hoping slingshot is is having some issue during this time tonight..

last night is all right as well
