Who’s your ISP.....DS just brought to my attention last week that our package was slow and obsolete.....I called and tripled my speed for like $20 more
The big ugly elephant in the room with regard to DSL is linear distance to the drop box from your location. Physics in unforgiving in this fact. We are 4 miles from the main switch! That's 21120ft protocol is that MAX speeds are ~3.5MB/s down & 0.5MB/s uploads to account for error rates an stable bandwidth. Honestly they are suppose to have us down to 1.0MB/s downloaded but, we have been 3.5 for a decade...

2019 someone "upped us" to a 4.5MB/s down speed and dropped the error ratio to zero. That was horrid, we had multiple dead wire days every month. Multiple calls to "tech support" each month.... After 4-5 months finally got a local tech to give me the truth....it was stupidity and getting us back down to 3.5 took another ---- geez 10-12 month now that I look back....

Quite to very. I'm not on a computer. I use either my tablet or pone. I "clean" them pretty regular. As much as can be done anyway.

Even with AT&T, the only other provider in our area, I would still have this reaction. They are just as bad. I live in college central, that could have something to do with it. Even my data wasn't working so I couldnt switch from wifi to cellular.

it's a real labor of love to be on this site. Anything else I would just have said screw it! not dealing with you!
