Very slow internet in Mississauga Meadowvale

Anyone else having insanely slow download speeds in the Meadowvale area? Is there some kind of outage? By insanely slow I mean less than 50k a sec. Rebooting doesnt help either.

I am in downtown Toronto using express and speeds at night are below 1 Mbps regularly.  It has been like this for a couple of months now. Up until these recent issues it was always fast all the time, day or night. Not very happy right now.

In tne last week I am also experiencing extremely slow internet speeds. I have the extreme package and my download speed does not exceed the 0.5 Mbps!!!

Is there a technical reason behind the sudden slow-down?

I am in downtown Toronto as well, and recently upgraded from Internet express to Extreme. What a mistake ! Now my connection seems like a dial-up and extremely slow, to the point I just wanna throw everything out of the window. What is wrong? why would Extreme be slower than dialup, let alone the express I had. I am really frustrated. Any ideas, help !  I would like to update to ultimate but am afraid that will ulimately slow for some reason:-)

THIS APPLIES TO EVERYONE WITH  THE NEW SMC ROUTER/MODEM COMBO. THEY ARE ABSOLUTE GARBAGE THATS THE REASON YOU GET 1MBPS AT NIGHT. This is what i recomend Get a Linksys or Dlink wirless G or N routers and hook them up to the SMC Gateway . you will notice a big preformance difference. I had this issue until 2 minutes ago when i installed my old linksys Wifi G router and now im getting 20MBPS on Express. ITS THE CRAPPY SMC ROUTER.

ITS THE CRAPPY SMC ROUTER. BUY A LINKSYS WIRELESS N OR G AND HOOK IT UP TO SMC VIA CABLE. THEN DISABLE WIRELESS ON THE SMC SO IT BECOMES JUST A MODEM. WORKED FOR ME
