Hi, my internet download speed should download at 300Mb/s but it only reaches that much for about an hour of the day. Then the speed gets as low at 0.20Mb/s or it just doesn't even download and just stop at a number. However my upload is never affected. Also when i start the download test, it starts at like 50Mb/s then drops to about 3Mb/s then just slowly keeps dropping.

What it looks like 90% of the time: http://www.speedtest.net/result/3650243715.png

I'd kill for an upload speed like yours !

 

Speedtest is not 100% accurate, but a series of tests over time gives a very good picture of the trends in your connection. The relevant question is what did your ISP (Time-Warner) offer when you took the contract ?  ISPs are renowned for advertising their services as 'upto x hundred Mbps' and then delivering some significantly lower number (That's 'up to' isn't it?)

 

Unless you are in the habit of downloading huge quantities of data, in which case you may be being throttled, I would be inclined to take this up with your ISP to see if there is some problem on your connection. And when it comes to arguing with them a series of speedtest results is very useful !

 

Another possibility is that another connection on the cable is being throttled and this is spilling over onto you. Take it up with Time-Warner in the first instance.
