    Sp yeah, since a few days my internet is being like REALLY slow for some odd reason, and I have nothing at all downloading, disconnected all the networks, rooters, etc. Tried all I knew but nothing worked..

    Ran a tracing root and nothing seemed wrong. My average download speed went from freaking 250ish KB/S to 25ish KB/S...fuck yeah!

    Check with your ISP. Maybe they capped your speed due to high bandwidth use without telling you, which would suck. Or maybe there's technical problems in your area.

    Chatting with an agent, the usual useless stuff going on...try reconnecting your rooter! Try downloading from our trusted sources!

    I use Cox Communications as well and I've also suspected that.
