I'm a previous Comcast customer and now after Time Warner replaced them I am having a really bad internet problem. I get a huge lag every 1-3 minutes and internet explorer says it can't display the page. I then click refresh and the page loads instantly. Although I get hit by the huge lag, my connection never drops. I always stay connected on instant messaging programs and never get disconnected from any games. I wish I knew if the root of this problem has to do with my computer or with Time Warner Cable.
Like everyone who had Comcast or Adelphia in SoCal I have been switched to Time Warner. I have had nothing but problems since, first with the cable TV (two service calls) and now with the internet--two phone calls with two different
techs and two "chats" with two different techs.
My current problem is internet speed. The variation this past week ranges from 1517 kilobits to 1845, which the tech said was "very slow." (I subsequently learned Time Warner offers three speed levels.) I am on "Standard," which until today was at the 1500 to 2000 kps range.
Today I am getting various readings, the first being 1861, the next being 27,161 kps. IS this related to broadband traffic or is there some other explanation? And has my connection speed been
miraculously solved or can I expect future slowdowns?
And getting a service person on the phone entails waits of up to one hour, in my experience. Monday I was given a reference number and the promise of a technical callback "within two days." No callback. The same happened with a customer service rep who was to
move me to a faster service, at a charge of course.
