Actually, they did just upgrade a half a megabit within the last few weeks...

Previously my scores were in the 2.5 Mbps range.. now they're consistantly @ 3 Mbps and sometimes better. The upstream didn't move any though...

That was then....

Anyway, Yes.. they should upgrade, as the competition is offering better packages for the same or less money. But if you've been with Bellsouth for any amount of time, you know they don't rush anything at all...

Also, I don't know where you're located, but there's rumor that Bellsouth will be upgrading to 6 Mbps DSL and possibly a 12 Mbit package sometime this year perhaps. Bellsouth also has plans in the works for their FTTP (Fiber To The Premesis) project....

Reason they don't upgrade any faster (besides the obvious factors) is that Bellsouth's Internet provider market right now is people that are getting the lower DSL connections to replace dialup. I mean, DSL lite is what... $15 a month? People are eating it up.... there's probably 10 of those customers to every 1 Xtreme subscriber..... (Well, maybe not 10.. but you get my drift)

well being a X bellsouth customer, i can relate to what he is saying. Bellsouth just rolled out a new tier but has not upgraded there plans in over 2-3 years while most of the big ISPs are upgrading there plans bellsouth wouldnt, they wanted a new plan(just didnt make much sense to me) I guess since Bellsouth pretty much owns the Southeast they can do what they want and when they want. thats why i changed ISPs
