DSL is Brutally Slow

Message 1 of 3

My Verizon DSL connection has become very slow in the last several months.  FIOS is not available here so DSL for Verizon is my only option except for switching to my cable provider for internet service which I am about to do if my DSL speed cannot be consistantly improved.


I have spent hours on the phone with customer service (they are always very helpful and patient) as well as speaking with Tier 2 technicians.  I have recievled a new modem and my trunk line connection has been changed several times at wherever that takes place (somewhre in Maryland, I think).  Mys DSL is still slow and inconstistant. sometimes shows good speeds but most of the time my DL speed is 1.0 or less (a lot less msot of the time) and my UL is okay at 0.4 or 0.5. 


I have a sales job and work from home 90% of the time and my wife works from home about 20% of the time.  We need good speeds or our company VPN's become unusable. 


I do not want to change ISP's but I'm at the end of my rope with my DSLservice.  Please help if you can.


Thank you.

Hey Stephen306,

We haven't heard from you since the order to increase your speed went through. It appears your speeds have been fixed, but if you have any other issues feel free to respond in the public thread and we'll get them taken care of.
