I have a friend who is being tortured by her internet speed and we’re trying to figure out what in the world could be the issue.1
It’s intermittent, and she has struggled with it on DSL and Cable both.
She’s Mac (as am I), and yesterday, for other reasons, she bought a brand spankin’ new iMac, and when she logged on… sloooooooooooow.
She’s currently on TIme Warner with TurboBoost (as am I), but as I say, she was complaining about the same issues when she was on DSL.
She lives in the foothills near Universal City, which is a very heavily networked neighborhood.
Now that she’s switched from DSL to cable, and she has a brand new computer to boot, I’m really stumped as to why she might be having these issues or what to look at to try and solve them.
