Mid-Hudson Internet Service Turns for the Worse – Much Worse


Just when I was getting used to a fairly responsive internet service from Mid-Hudson Cablevision, this morning’s chase after emails brought me back to “1 Mississippi 2 Mississippi”. So I have run a few test via SpeedTest.net.

Here are the results:

M-H has definitely optimized for Download Speeds, BUT the latency (this is the old “1 Mississippi 2 Mississippi” count after a mouse click) has gone from 50 to 60 to the horrible waits shown here. Finally, the upload speeds are anemic. They should be 0.4 to 0.5 MB/s.
