I have been receiving 1.5 down DSL for about 5 years,  all of a sudden my speed dropped to about half,  went through the usual calling Verizon and getting the guys in India or Mexico who can't speak English.  A Verizon tech came out 3 times ran loop tests and found that I am now 18,400 ft from the office and now too far to receive 1.5.   I can understand that but why did I get 1.5 for 5 years?

#1 What is the brand and model of your modem?

Just the fact they dispatched out 3 tehcs tells me they must see some trouble on the line. They say dsl works fine at 18,000 ft, but i've seen it work **bleep**her with ideal circumstances.  When the tech told you how far you were, did they also run a speed test with their equipment that shows what speeds they are currently recieving?
