My connection is 329 ever single time i test it (speakeasy.net/speedtest). I am supposed to have speeds up to 1.5mbps. I tried to change my modem to a newer model (signed up for ATT). Costumer service is horrible as they don't do anything, and when they said they fixed it things were exactly the same :thumbsup: I'm thinking something's wrong with my PC. It's behind a router, but it's the same when I connect it directly. I always use firefox, and it has always been the same speed. I get the same results on 2 different computers. Please help.

Have you tried to connect your modem directly to the service box.
If you look in the top right corner you can see a standard phone line can plug in. Use a new line. There are about $10 for 50ft at most dept stores. This will identify or eliminate your inside wiring.
NOTE: Your Telco service box may be a little different.

Is it slow all the time or just a certain times of the day?
