For the last 2 years i have been using giganews via Time Warner (roadrunner) with Grabit as my downloader. As of a few days ago my grabit download speeds have been around 17xx Kb/s..pretty fast.
Recently, I have been lucky to get 1/2 of that speed. Noting has been changed on my end as far as settings. When I deownload I kill all frewalls and virus stuff, so I know that stuff isn't to fault.
I have contacted both giganews and my ISP. Both say everything on their respective ends are OK. We've done traces, ping..etc, but no matter what I can not get my DL speeds back up.
If I use a speed test site I can confirm (roadrunner, msn, speedtest.com..etc) my speed at or above 1700 Kb/s. BUT if I use the giganews (http://www.giganews.com/test_connect.html) one I get only the 517Kb/s that Grabit reports while downloading.
Seeing this It seems my ISP is ok and giganews is wrong. Am I right?
I have sent the finding to giganews and hopefully they can see something they may of missed.
Any help from you all would help.
