Re: [Chicago] Upgrading internet speed? Just because a VRAD is half block from your house, it doesn't mean it serves your house. You could served by another box that is way farther from you.
You're not saying what issues do you have with the internet. You're saying its too slow? If the best you can get is 1.5 mb, and 3.0 is not available, many sites will load slow. And since its your only available speed, you are most likely on old DSL, not U-verse.
You may have to switch to cable or a wireless regional operator.
