CenturyLink DSL speed issues in rural Dixon, Illinois

Recommended Posts

Hey Bozman , I'm sure at some point people locally will see your post and reply.

Roam around the forum and you might find others in the same situation as yours :)

I live three miles from the main dsl base that is in our town of Dora,mo . Those in Dora vicinity (within one mile ) get speeds to 2 Mbps but I only got a max 93 KB/s . (Reason I said got is that was before I tweaked /optimized my network . I now get 1.25 Mbps) . Anyway , I talked to centurylink about the lower speeds and that they said they throttled all connections outside of the immediate area . Say Huh ????....and had no plans to increase it . I offered to pay more or get another plan but was told I had the highest plan for my location . I asked a centurylink worker if this was so and if I could get higher speeds . He said yes and that you could get higher speed if the company would allow it but they will not . I have no other options because that Centurylink is the only provider here .

Now thats not very nice is it. I do have to say though, seems they are protecting themselves, if they are maxed out, and sell more bandwidth, everyone suffers, this way only some suffer. You simply are on the short end until they get their junk updated in whatever way, I suppose.
