The internet in the North seems to be sucking wind (again).
Speeds test fine to Northwestel over my cable modem connection:
But once you head southward, it gets pretty bad. Here’s Edmonton, for example:
And here’s Vancouver:
And here’s San Francisco (ugh):
Interestingly, however, the connection to Yellowknife is reasonable. And by reasonable, I mean not sucking as bad as the others. This is likely due to the pseudo-redundancy Northwestel recently implemented, however.
What’s more, the mobile internet connection to Edmonton appears to be doing fine:
However, the connection back into Northwestel’s network from the Bell network? Not so happy:
Anyone else out there experiencing slow internet? Northwestel’s support line reports no problems, but I find browsing the net today painfully slow.
