Internet Slow Down


Internet Slow Down

All of a sudden my internet speed became significantly slower.  Streaming continues to pause, and mobile devices barely work.  I assumed I used all of my data, but checked and see we have only used roughly 30% of our available data.


I complained to my friend who experienced the same thing this week through AT&T.  Our usage habits have not changed and this has not been a problem in the past.


I find it "interesting" that when I log on there is now an ad for "Wall to wall Wi-Fi with AT&T Wi-Fi Extender".  I believe my internet speed and wifi connection is being intentionally disrupted in an attempt to make me think I need to buy additional equipment from AT&T.

Re: Internet Slow Down

My home fiber internet is 120mb. Every single day when I come home I have to reset my modem because they think it's fun to lower my bandwidth to 17-20 to move it around to other people. As soon as I reset my modem it jumps back up. Imagine all the people out there who don't know that resetting will increase your bandwidth. Robbery. Their fiber internet is absolutely a downgrade to regular cable internet.
