Thanks for responding so quickly. It's sort of a moot point now, though. I've had it with them. I got home from work last night and the DSL light on the modem is once again flashing!! indicating that the service is unavailable.
To answer your question, though, I have been to this site many times, and I would sometimes get very good results 1.6 or better Mbps, and roughly 400kbps u/l. I could easily live with those results if they were consistent. The price is right. I am paying around $30/month for the service. Unfortunately, my biggest gripe is that the d/l speed is not consistent, and the service is spotty at times. I may go for a month or more with little trouble, then I will go through a month or more with nothing but trouble. I've done everything that I can think of to rectify the problem. Installed an ADSL splitter, ran new phone line to the DSL jack hooked to the modem. You name it, I've tried it.
I'm not sure what the problem is, but whatever it is I am 99% sure that it's out of my control and out of my house. I suspect that the quality of the phone line between my house and the phone company isn't the greatest, but I really don't know???
Once again thank you for replying to my posting. Unfortunately, if I want a broadband connection, which I definitely do, then that leaves me with the option of cable--which is unfortunately a lot more money. It will be worth it, though, with the decrease in aggravation. I really wish that they had "affordable' and fast wireless where I live. That would really be awesome!!
