DSL Speed???

I'm in a new apartment now and I have AOL Broadband but my DSL line is thru verizon and it sucks! Our old AT&T cable connection was nearly 3 times faster than the DSL we have now. I'm just kinda pissed now, I thought DSL was supposed to be the way to go??? Is there anyway to increase the speed on this connection???

All depends

there is not way to rate dsl, for the same everywhere you go, It depends on several different depends.... Distance from CO,Your line might be old, I my self have comcast and have never really had any problem, Recently found out that comcast is 256/up which is cool due to i thought when it was attbi, it was only 128k

BTW... Im the guy who makes shit slow, with game hosting :]

Im a bastard, j/p

Call.. often in new installs they have a cap on the line temporarily. I did when I had DSL through IP.net and they were like.. "oh.. there's a cap on your line.. hmm.. dunno why that's there" and they took it off, fixing the problem. I was past SWB's distance limit for service, but IP gave me service, and I managed 600-800 down and 128 up.

When IP went under, I got RR and now I see anywhere from 2200 to 3000 up no matter the time of day.. And for the same price that I had DSL.

Also check your phone lines, don't have powercords wrapped around them, keep halogen lights away from the lines, etc.. I had a dedicated line from my brownbox into the house for my DSL to get the cleanest line into the house.

Visit dslreports.com for tips, and to get drtcp to maximize your system settings.. With my cable, I doubled my down speed messing with drtcp.

Hope this helps-

1) Toss AOsmelL anything out the door;

2) Visit www.bandwidthspeedtest.com and report your result;

3) Review your contract/available service and compare to your speedtest results...
