I have a SpeedTouch 536 ADSL modem.  Did a diagnostics at SpeedTouch's website and  under Wan, Dsl there is:

DSL Flavour =  ADSL over POTS
            Reserved Bandwidth (kbit/s) up/down = 128 / 256

I should be getting  128 kbps/512 kbps        from my ISP.  Is there a conflict?

All test results vary between 220kbs and 250kbs.  Will check with my ISP.

well if they are all pretty much the same, and you are paying for a higher bandwidth:
have them fix the speed issue & then have them refund the difference from the higher plan to the plan they were giving you for however long it was out

Sorry for the delay.  ISP promised to adjust speed but not done as yet.  I can pay for lower speed until adjustment made.  This is a new service installation.  Thanks.
