If you feel the need for speed and you are an AOL DSL member, you HAVE to call AOL and have your download cap lifted to a full 1500kbps. Verizon and Ameritech won't do this at all, but other PacBell Offices will do this but you have to go through AOL to get a service order. You cannot directly call the office because you are not their customer.

Note that your ISP/TELCO operator may not lift your cap if your line is unstable because:
•You will keep getting dropped•Synch errors•Line noise is too low•You are far from your CO•You live in a large city (bandwidth issues).

Keep this in mind when calling (3 P's):

Patience
Politeness
Perseverance
