Internet connection speed drops sometimes and phone quality drops when internet is fast.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My Internet speed has been dropping sometimes lately and when the Internet is fast, the phone service quality is low. I have Comcast Extreme 50 service. Usually I get download speeds around 72-100 Mbps and upload around 13-995 Mbps. But when the Internet is slow, I get down speeds of around 0.001 Mbps and up speeds of around 1 Mbps. The signal goes as follows from the top of our street to the modem : Pole at top of street->Amplifier->Amplifier->Splitter->Amplifier->Amplifier->Filter->Ground block->Pole at bottom of street->Amplifier->Amplifier->Splitter(Splits into multiple lines for different houses)->5 Amplifiers mounted in old Northern Telecom box->Service Drop->Ground Block->Ground Block->Splitter->Amplifier->Ground Block->Cable Plug in Wall->Modem
The signal path for phone goes as follows: Modem->Phone Plug->Punch Down Block 1->Punch Down Block 2->Punch Down Block 3->Phone Plugs

This is why you get a separate land line. Having said that, you're not getting an 100mb down speed a 900mb up speed on a 50mb down 6mb up connection
