att dsl

Recommended Posts

just hooked up my dsl about 5 minutes ago. i'm on the elite pack, 3.0-6.0. ran the test a couple of times and am averaging about 4.6 on the download and .65 on the up. pretty satisfied for the price. and from what i've heard it can take a few weeks to get your full speed. plus the phone jack is 15 feet from my computer, don't know if that matters of not. but thus far, it's real nice.

so, after like 2 weeks, my connection will get faster? or am i just interpreting what im reading wrong? cuz im on the sbc yahoo elite package, 6mbps connection speed, had it for 4 days now and it stays at a consistant 5 to 5.2mbps download and 637kbps upload, im satisfied but if it gets a lil bit faster after 2 weeks i wont complain with that.

I had AT*T DSL in Nashville after I dumped Comcast.

I had a 6mbps plan, and it was ALWAYS at 6mbps!  ( i didn't have to continually run speed tests on it because I knew it was performing as it should).

I moved to a rural area and got stuck with dial-up.  (currently fighting Hughesnet)...

so, without running sped tests, how do you "just know" that you were always getting 6mbps? im not trying to discredit what you are saying, but you cant "just know" that your internet is always performing at its peak, its not like driving a car where you can tell the difference between driving at 55mph and driving at 35mph....and maybe im just a lil bit compulsive with my daily speed tests here, but it gives me some form of gratification to see the numbers that im getting stay consistant from day to day. and whats the harm in stopping by this site for a quick minute every day to do a test that only takes about 15 seconds anyway? idk, maybe im just a nerd or a bit too compulsive, but i like to "actually" know, and not "just know" based on what i think. again, not calling you a lier, but if you had the 6mbps connection and you were actually getting 6mbps, then you must have been very special, or you were living inside the att routing station, cuz im right next door, less than 1000 ft of wire from my pc to their servers, and i dont hit 6mbps and thats the plan i signed up for. and its my understanding that the further from the local routing station, the slower your speeds....so, again, not to call you a lier, but i dont believe it.

Actually, I did live about 300 feet from the "central office/switch" as they call it.  The Switching station was on the end of a dead end road.  We had a back entrance at the rear of the apt complex which brought us out at a red light on a busy road. Passing by the station on the way out, I was literally within 10 feet of the door (fenced in of course). Obviously, the closer to the central office you live, the better speeds you get on DSL.  (i'll be happy to plot your the coordinates on a map if you dont believe me! )

:2funny::grin::shocked::idiot2::uglystupid2:

I did not have to do speed tests all of the time because I was satisified with the speeds I was getting.  I knew what my

web surfin speed was like, and I knew how to translate file downloads into kbps/mbps.  So I didn't have to do a speed test

to know I was running 6mbps.

damn tommie, thats really not that bad tho. i just switched from centennial wireless/sprint to this dsl, i was only getting 127kbps download, so switching from that to my now 6mbps connection is unbelievable. but i would have been satisfied with your speeds too, but i got greedy when signing up for my new att service, lol, i like it, no complaints as of yet.

Tommie, you never provided me with the details of EVDO.

Are you using a signal off your cell phone to act as a modem, have a USB connect card, or what?

I assume you're just capturing data in a wireless format such as a cell phone captures a signal??

Do tell?  Price??

This one is pretty good for usual. Its EVDO. And has no speed really. Just up to 2 megs I believe, And I have never seen it really.

and why are you posting my stats? and no, my speeds are not all over the place, i was fooling around with cablenut and also doing some tests while running other apps in the background, like utorrent and such, and the results before the 18th of this month were from my previous internet provider, which was a crappy usb aircard, but now it stays steady at around 5mbps. so, it seems to me that you are out to bash me, and i dont know thy, i told you i didnt mean any offense to you, i think youre just hatin on me cuz you cant reach 5mbps, but oh well, i aint stressed about this thread. im only here for my own amusement.

i'm not bashing you at all (see you're TYPING without thinking again).. . .  you can look up ANY members speed tests, they aren't private.

Not jealous of your speeds at all.  I'm happy for ya.  I had 12mbps Comcast in Nashville before I moved and changed to DSL..

Of course anything has to be better than what I get on Hughesnet!  :2funny: :2funny:
