Q: My Internet
connection seams slow, what's going on?
All Internet connections to the World-Wide-Web gets slow
when there is Internet Congestion. When too many people are trying to
access a server at a same time can cause that server or service to
appear slow. That goes with having too much users trying to get on
the system or moving data files at the same time which can overwhelm any
network. The business model of broadband is to share one single
high-speed connection to multiple connected users based on users just
browsing websites. Websites usually are web pages that are between 50kb
- 300kb which should take only take about 2-3 seconds to download and
randomly do not take up the entire bandwidth of the ISP. Everyone should
expect random slow downs due to erratic usages and over usages by the
overall network state.
