Here is an update on my DSL issue. I called the help line and got the same old response about how nothing can be done. After a while I insisted a line test by a truck coming to my house. In the mean time I spoke with one of the CB people who happened to be working on a new box in my neighborhood. He told me in addition to resetting the hardware at the central office a change had to be maded owntown. The person who cameto the house today did the line test and commented I had a really good signal. He then tried to tell me I had 5Mbytes even though the speed test said I had 2Mbytes. I told him the info above and he made a call downtown and gave htem my phone number. In about 3-4 minutes, wham I now had about 4Mbytes/sec, imagine that:). I would recommend call the help line and insist they send a truck, if they try to tell the BS they told me tell them about the chage that needs to be made downtown. Good luck bro.
