It’s As If They Are Watching…All The Time.

So we know that the cable companies throttle bandwidth and do their best to lower their costs by limiting your useage of their advertised download speeds. But funny thing here tonight, I was noticing slower than normal network speeds here on good old mediacrap, (I won’t mention my provider directly), and then suddenly when I installed a network analyzer called Fiddler…go figure, my speeds jumped back to these paid for speeds.

All I received the last several hours were network communication issues when running test, while at the same time I have reasonable network surfing speeds, not fast mind you, but reasonable. Then I suddenly get this result, a speed test that actually worked!

I have run several tonite and all appears well, for now. But we shall see what “Fiddler” shows us over the next few days.
