    Default Check this out....

    Any one ever call and just check up on your services that you have provided. Well today I did and I suggest all of you do the same. About a year ago I upgraded from dail up to DSL from Verizon. Today I get in the mail a flyer from Verizon that I usually just throw away. Well today I opened it and read it (I dont know why) It was a Personalized profile for my account. While I was reading this I noticed that the info said that I had the very best, HUH I said. I went to see my connection speed and it was at 100 mbps and there best was much higher than that. I called them and found out that since I got DSL they have had many upgrades. So they bottom line is that I was paying 29.99 a month for much less product than they advertise now, After speaking with someone they bumped me to the highest that they have and didnt charge me a cent and my monthly stays the same.

    Here is a test you can run to see what speed you have.

    Here's a site with over 300 bandwidth test sites:

    It is a good idea to test on several--I would suggest the ones in Maine or at least the East coast--you may find less speed the further away you go.

    I think she is full of crap. If you can double that for $29.99 a month you care getting one hell of a deal. She was probably just trying to shut you up. LOL

    For $29.99 those are pretty good numbers--that's full T1 down. If you can get 3MB down for the same money, you should dance a jig

    I have dial up and got these #'s 1707.2KBits / 213.4 KBytes
    I am an idiot on the computer, but aren't my numbers higher?
    Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.

    Hmmm... Anyone else have satellite internet?

    I have DirecWay (download only) and got the following from the Verizon Online SpeedTest (seems WAY too high): 7827.8Kbits 978.5KBytes
