Re: [Qwest] Centurylink upgrades speeds, but service is horrible

Actually AT&T was not BellSouth, but SBC.

That photo looks like a Remote Terminal. From there to the gateway router there should be a fiber backhaul for ATM traffic. That fiber capacity might be overloaded.

there is actually no fiber to that "terminal" as far as i am aware.
I am forced to assume that this terminal is the one servicing my connection, because it is the closest one to my house (approx 3mi away) and it follows the road that i know our phone line runs next to.
I believe there is dedicated T1 copper lines feeding that terminal, coming from a larger terminal several miles away that is fed by fiber optic cable.
