? No, it's just like I said. The only SWAG that I have for the slower
download is that I'm measuring it at the uploading modem, and the downloadi
ng transmitter is located 2-3 miles away at the central office?
What does Verizon say when you talk to them? They can remotely view
the parameters on the cable modem, including the speeds, while you're
talking to them. Did you get the replacement modem they sent you
set up and working?
The speeds are the speeds, regardless of which end you measure it at.
Stuff has to go in and come out at the same rate.
FWIW.... next Verizon stockholders meeting, May 7, 2015.
Verizon accused of tearing out copper telephone lines to force FiOS and
wireless on customers
March 24, 2014 -- Verizon has come under fire in the past for attempting
to shove consumers off of copper wire and on to either FiOS or its
expensive wireless Voice Link service but the blowback to-date hasn't
dissuaded the company. Now, consumer advocacy groups and consumers
themselves are both amping up the pressure, asking the government to
investigate Verizon's poor behavior and testifying that the company is
actively trying to shove people off existing copper deployments.....
In 2012, Verizon's Chief Financial officer, Fran Shammo, told the
Oppenheimer Holdings Technology, Internet, and Communications Conference
that "we are really proactively going after these copper customers in
the FiOS footprint and moving them to FiOS. So if you are a voice copper
customer and you call in that says you are having trouble on your line,
when we go out to repair that we are actually moving you to the FiOS
product. We are not repairing the copper anymore."
