Got the following in a direct post:
Hello... starting in the past week our AT&T upload speeds have slowed dramatically, and average speeds are now 3 Kbps. This is with FTP and WWW to different sites. Normal upload speeds are 50 Kbps. Our download speeds seem to be unaffected.
After some line testing and troubleshooting. It seems the actiontec needs an update or has one available to address these issues
It is an Actiontec GT724R. Firmware was 184.108.40.206.12. I found an update to 220.127.116.11.14 and performed the upgrade, which appears to have fixed it. It also appears to have fixed the disconnects that were occurring during the FTP transfers.

I've had troubles in the past with this, and it cleared up for a several month stretch. Now the problems are back.

Recently speaking to a field tech I found the netopia modems they have were the netopia 3342 series of 1 port USB dsl modems. Now I looked on ebay at the time and found these little devices go for about $7.95 a piece (which seems pretty cheap, if all you wanted to do is diagnose your dsl). story continues..

Speed tests using ATT Speed Test site (MO: Kansas) consistently shows speeds less than 2Mbps
There are filters in place.

From the end user:
[ upgrade failed] Pro service stuck at 896/512
I upgraded from express to pro service a couple of months ago. When I had dsl express, I was obtaining 1538 downstream and after upgrading to pro this merely went up to around 1680.

For this one here I will reference this link.
»Still getting 2.6Mb/s after upgrade to Elite
Apparently if you use IPcop you might have to check your traffic shaping to ensure that it is working correctly and set at the the right speed for your speed pkg you purchased.
be sure to check the QoS of devices you may be operating when you upgrade and downgrade speeds.
