I live in US EAST and I have time warner cable internet 15mbs down / 768 up turbo boost. In the past few days, I'd say I've downloaded over 30gigs and today I realized that my download speed is only 1MB/s (upload speed is the same) and this problem is not my computer because I tested speed on my other computer.

Is there a cap that TWC implemented recently? I've never had this problem before..

edit: It's not my router

here's my speedtest

Many ISPs are now capping the internet connection. I believe Time Warner is one that does indeed cap a user for downloading too much. However, from what I've read they normally don't throttle you unless you exceed 200-250gb a month. If the quotes 30gb is for one day - then you were probably cap, if it's monthly then something else is most likely going on unless you're on the cheapest plan.

Have you considered contacting them to see if you have been capped?
