Re: [connectivity] Speeds dropping randomly - DSL

If you think it's the modem, call Verizon and ask them to send you another Westell 7500 (or maybe you'll get a D-Link). While you're at it, have them check the path you take on the network and equipment for faults. If it's happening at random it sounds like something is up on Verizon's end, but if a reboot is immediately fixing it then it very well could be the modem.

Those Transceiver Statistics look fine, but I would expect your upstream to be much higher on the margin than that.

Hey, do what you need to do. If you can find a better deal elsewhere and it's reliable, suits your needs and consistent (aka, DOCSIS 3.0 modem on Comcast), go for it!

You could probably ask Verizon for 15M/1M if you were interested in hanging on still. Line just needs ADSL2+ if it's available.
