This started 3 weeks ago. Topanga is part Los Angeles county and I have 50M Fios. Looks like I need to move.
Or switch isp services ☺
could be a Netflix thing on that Netflix feed ?
Or at maybe Fios took a page out of Comcast's playbook and are throttling the content provider
Could be the load balancing (or something ) went haywire somewhere along the line between the content provider and
Fios or if it's the web in general it could be a hopefully temporary local thing also or it could also be the bay area in no CAL is hogging the internet after all we do own it and all
Just tested 21.14 mbps on my 18mbps ATT U Verse FTTN connection here
@ 13:15 hrs today
Problem with docsis 3.0 and maybe FTTP Fios ( I'm assuming that what you have fiber into copper at the home ) may be like Comcast is that local conditions *can choke at peak high local usage* and average throughput is nowhere near the 50mbps plan ceiling but only the occasional peak even under the best of conditions you would be would be hard pressed to maintain much over ~20 maybe 25 mbps if that of average throughput on a 50mbps plan ceiling . Been there with Comcast docsis 3.0. (*If Fios it works similar to Comcast*) if not then everything I just said *may *not apply * Maybe someone here would know ? With Comcast and *maybe * Fios the words "up to xx mbps" really may apply
maybe they just left out the occasional peak language ☺☺ .ofc local conditions vary as will avg throughput results .
No such limitations exist AFAIK
with UVerse FTTN or FTTN like Comcast or *maybe Fios FTTH * although the peak throughput is generally lower on some plans but the average throughput is usually consistently close to or above the plan ceiling * under good conditions 24/7 .
24mpbs U verse * may actually provide similar or better average throughput * than Fios or Comcast 50mbps service *in good conditions* ofc Comcast *and maybe Fios *won't tell you that.
