Does Broadstripe throttle their data?

Does Broadstripe throttle their data?I used to get ~15Mbs and now I'm getting 5-7Mbs, the thing is a tech recently fixed my broadband and I saw 15Mbs while he had a device hooked up. After it was fixed I'm back to ~5Mbs.

Still trying to find an answer, DSL Reports seem to have been taken over by "Facebook.com" questions.

While I'm not trolling you may not be happy with the correct answer. Only your ISP can answer if they throttle or not.

And today with all the Netflix and more, most services are tapped out. I suspect that there is no throttling except the one that occurs naturally (over taxed networks.)

What I have a hard time understanding is not other users

What I have a hard time understanding is not other users, when the tech had his device hooked up I got 15Mbs, then when he disconnected it I went back down to 3-6Mbs. After some thought I think I would rather know about what that device does.

The device I know of measures without overhead.

And only to the company's networks.

Almost all other measurements I see such as speed tests go off the ISP's network. So you get a fraction of the ISP's speed.

Cross posting is trouble for some. Some forums lock posts when that happens. I noted it so folk can see what else is there for clues about your question.
