  1. That looks more like an overclocked 768K DSL than 1.5M  . My modem is the same way  that it can show it  more than  400Kbps higher than my advertised speed  . So I have to say  it  can be...

    1) Spyware , Adware  , or viruses

                        or

    2) Verizon basically lied and said  you got the 1.5  but  you got the 768

    As minus well,  how  far  you live  from your CO  in feet?

    My DSL Connect Rate (Down/Up)    3360 KBits/Sec by 800 KBits/Sec   

    Advertised  DSL Speed (Down/Up)  3000 KBits/Sec by 768 Kbits/Sec

  2. Just ask for billing  at  the automated  voice .  The price is $29.95  if  you have Verizon Encore ($37.95 if you do not)  . You  should be available for the 1.5Mbps/384 or 768 Kbps . You will expect the change    immediately or may take up to 3 days  to receive the full amount of the service. And also  your  bill cycle  will  change  to up to  5 days earlier  than it normally arrives  and is due .

    I believe if you live close to 7000 feet  , you can get the 3.0Mbps/768Kbps connection for the same price  but it is determined by your distance  from your location to the CO that will be more efficiant.

    Hope this works for you  Jordan23

  3. Limewire  I have to say  is the fastest downloader  ever      ahead of  ares  then  kazaa.  But  what gets me  is that the ppl who pay $20-$50 for the subscription  and  they are  the higher priority that are getting sued because they get more features than the free customers. I have a $200  20GB MP3  Hard Drive  Music Player  that can store OVER 20,000 SONGS if formatted to 64Kbps WMA.  I am not willing to spend $20,000  on just music from like napster.  What about  those ppl  who are close to welfare ,  they would  have to pay for those songs. But a middle class  citizen    ($70.000/yr job)  won't have a problem with that  because  they can buy alot with  $70,000.

  4. I had that same  problem  a while  back  but  the old Westell Wirespeed only handles half duplex connection (10 Mbps)  and that speed tests  are  incorrect when dealing with a half duplex connections. The  Westell 2200 is guaranteed the full duplex connection (100Mbps) and is accurate nearly 100% of the time on speed tests. One main reason that I have on my mind  is the release of FIOS  and that  10 Mbps  connections to the networking card  is no longer used  so  100Mbps will be used for now on  till a higher speed above 100Mbps  comes out.

  5. it depends on the location of the CO.  If the CO is located more than 2 miles away, then your connection  will be low.    When I upgraded from 768K to 3.0M  , the speed  difference  was changed and was at full speed at the end of the phone call to verizon    but make  sure  you have  the latest  modem  ,  the Westell 2200. If  you do not have the Westell 2200 , please call  1-800-567-6789  and at the voice prompt  say billing. The modem  will cost  $40  and the modem/router in 1 will cost  $50.

  6. here is the website  for FIOS

    http://www22.verizon.com/FiosForHome/channels/Fios/HighSpeedInternetForHome.asp?promotion_code=&variant=

    The best deal is the $49.95  ($44.95 if  you have Verizon Freedom package)  it gives  you 15Mbps downspeed  and 2 Mbps upspeed.  Downloading songs and movies  will  become a breeze  with  this package instead  of waiting  1-2 hours to download a movie or 2-10 minutes  to download a song.

    Especially  those  who get FIOS  gets professional installation for free  and a  verizon technician  sets  up  your computer and supplies you with the modem or router that is needed for FIOS service for FREE.

    Anything can be done about this  or is FIOS making the average speed higher?

  8. Well  Comcast  has a Gigabit internet in the works  at the time. The science  of it  is  compression of data.  The smaller  the file  is compressed ,  the faster  it will go.  The Gigabit internet  should probably  run about $400 a month .

  9. Its not mainly  for the wealthy  .  People  who  work  for the NSA and CIA live  in Montgomery County    so  they need the fastest  connection available. Everyone  will have it  by  2006  or 2007    and believe me  ppl  who  are with comcast  will cancel  their service  when FIOS comes out . Currently  its $53  a month  for  6Mbps /768Kbps  with comcast.  When  FIOS comes out  ,  it  will be  15Mbps / 2Mbps  for  $8 cheaper  with Verizon Freedon  at  a price  for FIOS at $45.

  10. SBC Yahoo!  is not a good service provider for internet.  I know ppl  who live in Ohio and  they  said  that  the    prices for internet ranges from $14.95- $24.99  and  speed ranges from 384-1500Kbps down /  128-384Kbps up  for $14.95  and  for $24.99  ranges from 1.5-3.0Mbps down / 384-512Kbps up.  The only  thing  that ppl  get SBC Yahoo  for  is  for  the Yahoo All-Star membership. Best thing to go  for  is  companies like  Verizon  or Comcast    because  you  really  get  the free stuff on here.  Last Year  with verizon ,  I got  MLB TV  on my  computer  for  free  and  this year  I  got enhancements  on my speed and service.  I went  from  768 Kbps down/ 96KBps up  to 3.0 Mbps down / 384 KBps  up  FREE OF CHARGE  and being my  modem  was  4 years  old  ,  it couldn't  handle  the updated speed  so I had  to buy  the latest model from verizon  for $40  .  The Westell 2200  is  like  one of the best models of modems  around  now    with  the direct  connection  and  also the USB function ; but  with the USB function  ,  you  need  to ask  for the USB disk  to be able to use the modem  anywhere  you want to use it    just as long as  you have  the phone line connected.

  11. I did  because  it  was  going sluggish  even  when I had  0 viruses  0 spyware  0 adware and firewall  plus. But now  its  at the advertised  speed for  verizon  but is  .5Mbps short of  average verizon.net speed  which  is  close to 3.5Mbps.  I guess  when I downloaded  SP2  in place of SP1  , it  caused the problem. So  if  you have  Windows XP with SP2  already installed on the disk from Microsoft  , then it will work.

  12. Hello    I live in 21222 (dundalk / baltimore city)  and  verizon  is  currently  testing out  FIOS in Baltimore.  It will most likely  will be  up  by early next year  or by New Year's  2007.  If  you like to know  the prices for FIOS  its....

    $39.95  for  5 Mbps Down / 2 Mbps Up

    $49.95  for  15 Mbps Down / 2 Mbps  Up      <-------Best Value

    $199.95  for  30 Mbps Down / 5 Mbps Up

    All prices are of the monthly  billing.  If  you have  Verizon  Freedom  and / or Directv  service  through Verizon ,    you  will get    $5 off the $39.95  and $49.95 packages    and  $20 off the  $199.95 package.

    If  you  like  more  information  on how  to get  Verizon  FIOS ,  please  go to http://www22.verizon.com/FiosForHome/channels/Fios/HighSpeedInternetForHome.asp  and  enter  your  phone  #  to  get up-to-date info  on  when  Verizon FIOS will be available  in the Baltimore  Metropolitan Area.

    People in Montgomery County  get the service  first  because  its  a rich ,  highly populated  ,  and  also  many federal workers live in Montgomery County .

  13. It  was  SP2  that  was  causing my  internet  to go slow.

    My advertised speed is 3000/768  and  its with Verizon.  I need the setting for that  speed  . 

  16. If  u has  for instance  verizon  1.5Mbps/384Kbps  is typical.  I have the same  problem  also  but its  server problems  with  yahoo for instance.  I tried to download  a game  off of  yahoo  and  it was only  going  at  90KB/s  compared to my usual  384KB/s.  And then I go to  MSN games  and download  a game  and  it  shows  400KB/s.  So  it may be a server problem  with certain websites.
