My old Time Warner account was 30 mbps, and using speedtest.net, I could (almost) always hit 30-35 mbps. It was reliable, and I was happy until Spectrum acquired TWC and my rates when up.
I switched to the Spectrum 60 mbps connection for a better rate. Immediately after switching, I got nearly 60 mbps on my first speed test. Later that day, I noticed sluggish Internet. Every speedtest since has been 5-10 mbps. That's 3-6 times slower than my old connection.
My network uses an Arris Surfboard connected to a pfSense DHCP/Firewall (IPV4 & 6) server with two Linksys routers in repeater mode. This setup did not change all all before or after the switch. I also use Google DNS servers as I always have.
I reset my cable modem, firewall, routers, and computers. No luck. I noticed some WAN latency on the connection.
Any idea on where the problem might be or how to improve it?
You need to use Spectrums free modem and the TWC/ Spectrum DNS of 126.96.36.199/62
Also paste the modems signal level and error log pages and a tracert to google.com
Thanks. I changed my DNS to the ones you suggested.

I will post modem diagnostics when I have a chance to move my computer in front of the firewall.
Hop 1 should be 192.168.x.x indicating the router is in NAT mode...
When you switched did you reset everything to factory defaults then autodetect WAN settings?
I doubt it since you had a google DNS setup.
