My DSL has sucked for a while, ever since they "upgraded" me. I finally got someone out to look at it, and it turned out the phone line has some sort of interference. So he put in a splitter in the phone room and ran the DSL data through line #3
. Suddenly I'm getting download speeds of 1.1 or 1.2 Mbps, which is pretty close 1.5, and a lot higher than the 200-600 Kpbs I was seeing before. Now I can download pr0n in under half the time!
