it made sense to me...

Ok, so help me out.  Dlewis said "Hah, that just shows how far behind BellSouth is".

My question to you, sir, is, WHAT exactly shows how far behind BellSouth is?  Please base your answer on the first posts in this thread, which is what Dlewis was replying to.

Thanks,

RJ

look at the aol then look at the bellsouth speed, there is a very big difference. then go look at some of the other providers like verizon, comcast, cox ect. there speeds kill when compared to bellsouth. and bellsouth isnt getting much faster. DSL just can't do it any more.

Did you read the second post in this thread?  The OP is getting two different speed results based on whether he's using AOL or IE with the SAME DSL LINE.  There is no speed difference, he is seeing that because AOL is measuring speed incorrectly, it's measuring the speed of his browser cache, not his actual line speed.

HE IS ON THE SAME LINE BOTH TIMES.  There IS no difference.  Sheesh.
