    ya, i used to get shit service from them too, but up here in vacaville it seems they've shaped up. it cost us nothing for them to fix it, since it was their problem, and it took about 1.5 weeks, after checking everything... we were on the ball calling them a lot though.

    I had the same problem with Verizon, they came out and fixed it the next day. I have had them out 4 times otherwise though, because when it goes down, I call and I am pretty close to the service depot delio.

    no, thats about right.

    128 kb/s is NOT 128 Kb/s

    divide by 8 dude.
    its like 16 Kb/s

    384 kbps to 1.5Mbps downstream and 128kps upstream.. those are the speeds for my service.. anyway, so my internet is normal? but how come it was so fast when i first got it.. now pages takes as long as 56k to load..

    i called them mofos and was on wait for like 30 minutes.. then the 'tech' tells me to do what ive already done 239047209742 times.. turn off the cpu, the modem, unplug, wait 1 min, then reboot everything.. i got the blaster worm, i dl the windows update, i dl the patch, i used the FixItTool, and did everything else imaginable to my compression.. ive even tried the software tweaks, but my dsl is still slow as hell.. the tech, basically said i dont know and told me to wait it out and if its still slow call them..im extremely aggravated..

    Guess what I got in the mail yesterday? A group lawsuit filed against SBC for that exact reason. Legal mumbo jumbo. Suing for falsly claimed speeds, bad tech suport, etc.... I'm all over it. I think I get 2 months of DSL service refunded. $100 for me... :woo:
