    Incredibly our internet (Fios) has been very good during lockdown despite 3 people working from home, another person streaming movies, and too many to count computers and devices connected.

    The outage didn't seem to impact anyone here today.

    FiOS here. Uncannily reliable and consistent. Plenty of reserve bandwidth for my use.

    A mostly free of hard sell BS_L.gif speed test link: https://www.speedcheck.org/

    It works with my adblockers and privacy settings. One of the few that do. Might be the only really.

    I have streaming video running in another browser.

    I am back to a whopping 4Mbps download and 8 Mbps upload. I should (and usually have ) 60 MbPs, cable internet
    Had problems yesterday too, it’s on and off.
    I was aware of the issues, just wondering if it’s what’s affecting my speed
