    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

    So who do we talk to at verizon to complain? Looks like we're paying $30 for the slow stuff too. Actually, I thought we were paying more than $30, but I have to wait for Lee to get home to be sure...

    Call this number but do complain just ask them if they can up grade your service to the current fast dsl since you are paying dsl fees

    1-800-688-2880

    They have been more than helpful to me and they speak english at that

    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?
