Hello, I live in East Port Orchard, Washington, and was wondering a few things about my DSL.
1. Why is my 1.5Mbps DSL never going past 1.30Mbps?
2. I have waited 5 years for Qwest/Centurylink to upgrade their system to fiber-optics. When I first got my DSL 5 years back, they told me they were upgrading to fiber that summer. Well they were obviously wrong. When I had a tech out to fix reliability problems in my home's wiring (1970's wiring), he stated that the wires run under the freeway on-ramp and under another different state highway, and thus required special permits to put in fiber. When will they finally put in fiber?
3. I am confused, as a remote DSLAM in my neighborhood (closest to my house) says on a sign by it "Centurylink high-speed internet just got faster", but I don't have faster speeds available at my house, and it looks like there is another DSL box on the same road, but farther down it, on the other side of highway-16 (only about 0.5 miles away from the other DSLAM) is not any faster.
Additional information from modem (Actiontec PK5000):
SNR: 31 dB 17 dB
Attenuation: 20 dB 11 dB
Power: 13 dBm 9 dBm
