Slow DSL connection,

October 30, 2006 4:04pm CST
my download should be 8Mbs but am only getting 200bps on average, I have checked all the connections and they are ok. I have deleted my modem drivers and re-installed them, but still slow speeds. I am with Homecall and they do not seem to be doing anything about the slow speeds. Any ideas of how reso;ve this?

The police aren't going to do anything about a slow internet connection.

I have done that for 2 months since upgrading to 8meg, but they just keep asking for 4 tests over 24 hours and then do nothing.

Many times, fast DSL connections aren't available everywhere. Only particular areas get high speed, I believe. Also, it could be a low quality modem, and don't expect your isp to do anything! If necessary, change your provider to a more reliable company like Verizon.

You may not be able to resovle your issue. Depending on where you live, you may just be too far away to get the strongest signal the ISP you are with has to offer. DSL speed does get depleted the further you are away from the signal.

I am closer to the telephone exchange(in Scotland) than my brother and he gets 7.6 meg download.
