Fiber Speed is Way Below Advertised
I got Fiber more than a month ago and was worried about the speed and stability of the connection since then.
To quantify my concerns I wrote a script and kept it running on my server that is connected to ATT router directly with an ethernet cable with nothing in between.
Speed is measured continuously every 10 minutes with a command "curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest.py | python -"
This is a python script that selects the nearest service and measures the upload download speeds.
All my files with date/times and speed measurements are here: https://github.com/demichev78/att-speed/tree/master/speed-reports
A report is accumulated in one file here: https://github.com/demichev78/att-speed/blob/master/result.txt
Visualization is here: "https://github.com/demichev78/att-speed/blob/master/Speed-Graph.png"
I understand that ATT is overselling its capacity and I will never be able to get up to 1 Gb/s, however, average download speed is 401Mb/s which is way more closer to non-fiber plans that are less expensive as well.
How could I share my stats with ATT and ask to fix the problem?
PS Happy to assist to measure your speed with the same approach if you need this help.
