Is anyone having a problem with their internet being slow? I think since Insight introduced this 20.0....it's quite strange that my home and work computer have slowed, as well as some of my friends. Are we over reacting or is this happening to everyone?

Hi Stephanie,

YES, my internet has been slower! I also have Insight broadband service, and I've noticed a significant decrease in download speeds. Some pages can take upwards of 2-3 minutes to load, which is fine for dial-up -- but not for "high speed." I've called Insight, but they've been no help. Have you found any info the recent change in internet speed?

I live in Louisville, but also use Insight internet at home. Mine has actually been FASTER since they introduced 20.0. I didn't order the 20.0 service. Weird.

Stephanie, Cable broadband is a shared connection between you and all other subscribers in your neighborhood. Sounds to me that when they introduced the 20.0 that more people have subscribed to it and there may be several neighbors that are downloading a lot of stuff and that can affect all users speed. No wonder these ISP are looking at proposing data caps and charging based on data transfer. Some cable companies are already testing this approach in Texas.
