The problem is there are alot of crooks out there who advertise broadband, like Sprint, Cricket and Virgin Mobile and will take your money but then can't deliver the service advertised or even get it to work at all in some cases. I have nothing to do with running Virgin Mobile or Cricket, etc. and making them so slow. The speed goes up and down all the time on it's own, sometimes it's up to 200-400kbps and then it can suddenly drop to 56k for a while. I'm a network admin at work and I'd like to go over there and speed them up if I could but the builting is locked and they won't let me in!
