I had an interesting experience today.
Our DSL was acting up very badly this morning. Wife was going sorta nuts because nothing would load.
I still had the support phone number for AT&T DSL from a mass outage last week.
So I called. I got one of those people who can only read a script.
But he did finally decide we needed a tech to come out.
The phone guy had me check my speed using www.speakeasy.net/speedtest
It measured 3184. So I thought I should upgrade to the 6 mb speed. Finally got connected online to my account and I was already paying for 6mb speeds.
So I was only getting half.
The At&T guy came out. I was getting 7mb on the box outside my house and 3mb in my home office. Bad wiring.
I had some old lines that were not being used. He used one of those pair with the filter on the box on the side of the house.
Now I have twice the speed at my desk !!!!
Are you getting what you pay for ?
Here is where you can check...
