HELP MY DSL IS SOOO SLOW!!
Posted on 2001-08-15
I just recently signed up for Earthlink DSL and it has been nothing but aggravation for me. I live
in Queens, NY and I am about 10,000ft from the CO yet I get speeds of 23kbps. (Yes, I did type that
I complained to Earthlink that I was getting poor speeds, and they sent out a Telco repairman out to me. He tested the lines and modem and he changed one line. After running a test and still getting poor speeds, he determined that I was too far from the CO.
Before the Telco repairman came out to "fix the wires", I was getting speeds of 140kbps down/ 112kpbs up. After Telco repairman came out, I am getting consistent speeds of 23kbps.
I complained to Earthlink again, stating that something went quirky after the Telco repairman came to my house. Earthlink is telling me because the Telco repairman determined I am too far from the CO, they cant do anything. What is causing me to get such slow speeds!? And is this just coincidence that this problem occured? Thanks for your input!
