    This thread reminded me I needed to check my service level...There's a new cable modem on its way because apparently I should be getting about 300Mbps. While my current one is capable of that speed, Cox recommends a 16 channel modem for anything over 150Mbps service.

    It's amazing what a new run of cable (because the neighbor's asshole dog chews on everything), and a call to level 2 tech support gets...

    FYI:

    From Netflix, runs off the Netflix servers. Makes it harder for the cable companies to prioritize traffic to Ookla. (Theoretically, Ookla and fast.com should match, if you're not being throttled / prioritized)

    They're reporting 230Mbps, so I'd say that's a pretty good indicator of non-shadiness.

    Looks like a clear case of the accelerator virus. You should definitely start that scan. Might save your life.

    Found out that they installed their own 100% entirely unnecessary router in between the fiber node and our internal network. I yanked it out and plugged directly into the pipe.

    Meanwhile in the land of zero competition. (Seriously, I have zero other options for internet at my house. I planned poorly when I bought the house.)

    Huh. I've never seen upload speeds 2X as high as download speeds. Cool.
