    Earlier this week, my DSL has gotten really slow where it barely can load google. When I log into the router by typing the ip in the address bar, it shows the download/upload speeds. It used to be ~1200/700 down/up in kb/s, but for the past week it has been listed as 32/700. It's almost as if Verizon is throttling my service... I don't see why it would suddenly be so slow :dunno:

    I already called, stupid indian guy said they'd be here on monday...

    I wouldn't be surprised if someone in this house did download a shitload of porn. I just wish they would have fucking told me if it was being throttled or not.

    If it was being throttled they wouldn't be sending a guy to your house.

    i was once on the phone with sbc because my dsl was showing a crazy slow speed. during the call i noticed that my connection dropped and was attempting to reconnect. i kept getting this crazy noise in the phone. i looked around the house and found that my parents had plugged that phone into the wall without the dsl filter

    I dont have anything against verizon using indian dudes and chicks as their customer service...but they really need more training.

    I have this problems where my connection drops off randomly about 4 times a day. They cannot seem to comprehend this problem. They keep telling me there is a problem with my computer. Ive told them i would like a new modem sent out and they say i have to pay for it!! I dont want cable but they might leave me with no choice.
