On the Internet 150 plan. Not the account owner, but a tenant. Recently accessing some websites (namely Reddit) became incredibly slow.

Steps Taken:

Restarted modem

Rebooted devices


Any help troubleshooting?


Edit: A test to PNAP-SEA, by Internap Network yields 0.4MBPS! This one is from, all other networks in Seattle there yields good connection:
