Re: DSL woes

Gary,

I was using a Mom & Pop cable company, so their network design could easily have been "less than optimal" shall we say. Like yourself I work out of the house so I saw network performance at all hours. The slowdowns were clearly noticeable. In normal weather afternoons weren't too bad, probably because of sports. You'd see things start to slow down around 5pm. They'd stay slow all weekend. Worst was "snow days" when everyone was home from school, inside. Then the cable connection became comparable to dial-up. I don't know where the bottleneck was, but that system sure had one. Thanks for pointing out that not all cable systems are created equal.

Regards,
Joe
