nah gastly, my US has always been solid orange. Link is blinking orange (unless you connect modem directly to computer I think, then it will blink green)
Everything else solid green.

This is on the modem with 8 lights by the way

That orange and green means this....the modem is gigabit ethernet, if you connect it to 10/100Mb nic it will be orange if its 10/100/1000nic it will be green...

Thank you for choosing Flow.

Strangely since they fixed my issue my US is now orange (solid) and my net pumping.

BTW guys, if your modem blinking all over like a light show it's two things:
1) Problem in the area
2) an update was pushed and it's downloading/applying. or so they say.

then you have a problem too.
just because you have company doh mean everything is good. :lol:
orange US means there is only one upstream channel available so if that one channel gets flaky or overloaded your goose is cook.

Called Flow last night, they immediately admitted there was an outage in the area and that service would be restored ASAP. By this morning service is back, all lights solid green except link which is blinking green. Speedtest below - first to POS then to Tampa FL.

All this tells us is that the modem is searching for a downstream connection and can't get one. Only Flow can tell you the reason (if they even give you a proper one). You just have to hope you get a good customer service rep when you call really. I think you can call anytime. I got through around 8 last night 223-FLOW.

The orange light usually means what you wrote, but Flow can supposedly configure the lights to mean something else (see Note 1), because I never see that light turn green in my 4 years of Flow. Either that, or they real confident about that one channel not failing. The only time I get issues is if there is a widespread problem.

They didn't specify what is 'High Speed' vs 'Ultra High Speed' :?

^ That might not help. Some of them CSRs don't know the difference between dental floss and pubes, so you will be talking to a wall.

That green us light I think means, the modem is capable of locking on to several upstream channels but flow does not offer that 1 upstream channel per modem, unlike their downstream which the modems lock onto 4 and 8 in some cases. Each channel allows the modem 25-30Mbs. Seeing that the max offered speed from flow is something like 3Mbs suggests that there is no channel bonding on the upstream...but the modem is capable of it, hence the green and orange light

Hey, I've called Flow but got no real help and may well call again. The internet has been fine but webpages take a bit longer to load.

On Youtube when I click my subscriptions, thumbnails now don't always show up for videos, and streaming Youtube wirelessly freezes a lot. Even wired YouTube will not stream as before. Twitch steaming is worse than YouTube.

I understand things will be slower with more people on board, but this is not acceptable for the Turbo 30 package considering this is only a recent issue.

Admittedly I have been using Blockless DNS, but changing to Google DNS does not seem to yeild much better results. I have been riding it out to see if it will just fix itself but something is wrong. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

Just curious if there is anything I could do on my end, or something I could tell Flow.

When I called Flow they had me do Speedtests...but I don't care about local server speeds. YouTube and Twitch ain't hosted here!

I have the old modem and intend on getting the new one with wireless even though I already have a router. Maybe that will help things?

Would it be a bad idea to request a new modem considering I've had this one since they introduced internet? I'm willing to try anything.

I just had a friend in South with a 20meg plan stream a video without streaming while I was trying the same livestream at a LOWER setting and I could not get it to be smooth without pausing.

My internet is "fine" but it certainly is not where it was before. Really annoying since I don't watch TV and use the internet instead.
