    Slow speeds?? found out why

    ok check this out, me and some other people could not figure out why my kbs would not reach over 700. I am paying for a 1500 plan too so I went to earthlinks live chat while on hold ( 76 minute hold I was told ) and the guy says this:

    BillF: You are on a 768/128 line
    BillF: That's all the provider in your area provides.

    mcgruddy@earthlink.com: um ok
    mcgruddy@earthlink.com: is there a plan for that line speed?

    BillF: The same plan.

    mcgruddy@earthlink.com: Ok so my friend who lives 4 blocks away gets speeds around 1200kbs through AOL but I can only get this through EL and we use the same phone company

    BillF: I'm sorry, that is what is available in that area, and he may not be on the same connecting office you are, and that is how it is determined.


    this totally sucks
