Bellsouth has to be the worst ISP I have ever had to deal with.
We are on the so called " DSL 6.0 Extreme". Bull. Never once have I even achieved a test result of 6000, max I've EVER gotten... maybe 1.5.
So I call Bellsouth, they come over to my house, and tell me its my computer thats the problem. Well, for Christmas, I received a brand new Core 2 Duo computer and the speeds are as slow as ever. Heres the latest and greatest test:
