    Bandwidth Is now working as expected. Thank you all for you input.

    Good thing I checked the older posts before creating a duplicate.
    To the point I was curious if anybody had or have both flow rock/essential(25Mbps) and play 25(50Mbps) how they differ interms of consistent connectivity, throttling and any other details.
    Reasons for my inquiry is mainly due to the fact that I am currently uaing Flow Rave and since Nov 2018 service has been horrendous constant disconnection with or w/o use and massive throttling. I went to a flow store and called customer care and is the same response no idea what is going on. I assumed initially it was due to the road work being done on Hagley Park but I spoke with several community members and everyone says it seems to be working as usual and even spoke so some flow technician/engineer doing work on road as weel and most they told me it was realign the cable so I am a bit befuddled so I was looking to press for a different provider if thos continues, I did it when I was using C&W adsl to flow so it seems like a good time to jump again due to bad service for me at least.

    I had the 50Mbps package for a short while before downgrade to 25Mbps. Both packages vary in bandwidth consistency but that is to be expected, Digi uptime is better and their internet connection will often work during power outages (assuming router is on backup). Power consumption is also better: Digi 5v vs Flow 12v, lasts longer on backup.

    Though I found the downgrade necessary, I am pleased with the decision to change.

    Got a notification from Digicel today that they'll be defaulting their 25/Mbps plan to 50/Mbps but to be honest if youd been with them from the beggining that was already the case anyway so no big whoop, but i decided to do a speed test and was getting some insane numbers such as 600/Mbps, and thinking that couldnt be right, so i also just loaded up steam and tried to download some large files and getting close to 50 megabytes a second anyone else experiencing this?
