Having real problems with my Internet connection – sometimes it works – most times it doesn’t or is so slow I’m paying Broadband prices for dial-up service. I started out using a dial-up while we were in the Lotus Hotel because it was impossible to run a private line or phone number into the studio room. When we moved I started out getting the local phone Co. TTT Internet ADSL service at 512/256 – spotty connections but mostly up and running, but it did have a slow speed. Then I heard about True Cable Broadband Service 1024/512 and it was available in our building, so I signed up —– so far that was a mistake.
Almost a day after it was installed the d/l speeds dropped to almost nothing – I was better off with the 512/256 service. To see what was going on – I have installed a monitoring program
(a great way to monitor your Internet speeds – LineSpeedMeter from www.tcpIQ.com , it’s free and I set it to automatically check 48 times a day)
The program will run 11 down-load/upload speed tests every half hour. I have clocked about a week of testing and the True Cable system is barely giving me a 256/256 speed. I am trying to work this out with True and hope they can solve the problem. Naturally they say it’s my computer that’s causing the problem – but I also have the laptop and it gets the same speed readings – so it’s back to their move.
Sorry for not getting to my email either – working on the Internet connection and try to get proficient with Adobe Production Suite has really taken up almost all of our time. Hopefully I’ll have the Internet problems solved soon and will catch up with all my email – Please hang in there if I haven’t answered yours.
