Variable Download Speed

Have subscribed to 100/10 internet speed. Had two techservice in-home visits plus many tech service phone conversations. Spectrum says I am getting the 100/10 service. Yet I am still getting wild variations in download speed when hard wired from Spectrum provided modem to my laptop - never higher that 89 and as low as 10.  Why am I seeing these large variations?


Re: Variable Download Speed

Copy and paste signal level and error log pages and your zipcode for a start.

Are you using the TWC/spectrum speedtest tool?



Re: Variable Download Speed

I have used multiple speed tests, including Ookla, which was recommended by the Spectrum technician. The results are the same - variable download speed to as low as 10. Why is there this variation? Is there a signal problem from Spectrum?
