we currently are using earthlink. it's been a great service and i have used them for about 5 years now. normally problem free. above you see my speed test results when everything is working fine. however, after about 30 minutes or so, my connection dies. it simply dies. i can reset the modem and bring it back up. i can force our router to pull a new ip address and it comes back up.
this all started after the lightning storm that happened about 4 weeks ago now. if you remember there were (according to news reports) over 17,000 lightning strikes in that one day across the state. so we first replaced our modem, now it's very inconsistent.
we have tech support coming out today to check the lines. hopefully we will be back up and running, soon.
