My connection is slow!!!!!

I had the regular 1 mbps plan but i upgraded to the 7.1 Mbps plan. My problem is i consistently get 4.9 mbps and in the evening it goes even lower to 2.1 mbps. I called tech support and that was pointless it still stayed the same. I play Xbox online and when i play it lags and was wondering if there was a way to get to the 7.1 Mbps or even just to get closer than 4.9 Mbps. I have a actiontec gt704wgb connected to a dry loop. HELP!!!!!!!

Re: My connection is slow!!!!!

Sorry for your internet slowdown. Have you tried rebooting or resetting the router/modem?
