Thanks S1 and Timmers83 for replying. I'm pretty content with my Verizon DSL, and recently got an upgrade to 1.5/384 from 768/128. I think I was hoping in my "heart of hearts" that the diagnosis of "running at only 49.15 % of your hosts average (verizon.net)" might indicate that I could get 3.0 from them. I did a CO distance check before asking for the current upgrade, and Covad reported me at 12,567 ft. from the CO (which is a Verizon CO and the one servicing my DSL). I believe I need to be <11,000 feet to qualify for 3.0, but I can alway hope.
I'm directly connected to the Westel
