    why so slow?
    we have dsl through our phone co and it looks like ours is the slowest on the forum.
    do i need to call the isp or upgrade my modem and router?
    You mean you don't have 5 spare computers hanging around to boost your speed? hahaha

    I'm sorry Joey, it's fun to get Rick since he has to have the fastest, latest gadget around.

        If you go with their lower cost DSL speeds are limited to 720 for downloading and 128 for uploading.

        Yesterday when DSL was down, I tried dial-up and oh is that painfully slow by comparison. Some things just refused to work at all.
        I am glad to have dial-up as I can access my E-mail and do some other basic stuff, but it crawls along.

          That's from Ontario, Canada, with service from Bell Sympatico (DSL). And no, it's not still frozen up here in July, thank you - we'll nip that one in the bud.
