High Speed Slowdown

I was uploading and downloading some data last week and noticed that my upload speed was lower than it should be — like 1000+ kbps low. I tested my up/down speeds at and Broadstar, only to find that I was getting, at best, 50% of the speeds I am paying for. I checked my bill online to see if I had been throttled down to the middle level FIOS service after my promotional month was up, but I’m still being charged for the 20Mbps/5Mbps line.

Fawk. Guess I’m going to have to call support on Wednesday to see what’s up. I hope it isn’t poor performance on the part of my Linksys router — the one that Verizon gave me would drop its connection every 30 – 50 minutes.
