My speeds are SLOW! Can anyone help?

Hello there. I'm new here, and I was hoping that someone could help. I just got my Rogers High Speed today, and my download speeds are at 80kb/s. That's terrible! Worse than Sympatico! Is there anything I can do to speed it up perhaps? Tweaking?

Do you see where it says copy/paste this url? Just copy and paste it in a post, and then we can check up on it, without you having to do those screen shots.

Hi there. Nevermind everyone, I'm switching providers tomorrow. I can't stand the slow speeds Rogers is giving me, and when I called for help, the Tech told me that this (look above in previous post) is all I can expect for speeds. I wasn't impressed with the speeds, or customer service, so I cancelled. Thanks to all who replied though!

And what point is that? Have you had some problems with Rogers as well, Rogerian? I hate to give up so soon on Rogers, but if they aren't willing to help me then I can't stick around and help line their pockets. I think I'll go down in the Rogers history books as 'the customer with the shortest subscription.' LOL. Oh well, what can ya do. Live and learn I suppose.

I don't have a firewall on. I don't use one, and I disable the one that comes standard with Windows XP. No need to get your panties in a bunch.

Rogers and Sympatico tests done just today. Both were done with a clear cache, btw. Either their modem isn't working correctly, or they aren't faster than Sympatico after all.

Try choosing your connection type as normal not winxppppoe. The speed as 1500 after that try a line test then post them here that might help, cause I agree your speed does look bad. You sure they didn't give you High Speed Lite by mistake
