I was glad that I could find out this info. for you you are right your running a good speed for what you phone lines can handle for your DSL at this time.
what I would do is check back with verizon in a couple of months to see if they have done the upgrades in your area and if not done when do they think it will be. So glad we could help you :D

I just got off the phone with verizon come to find out they can tell you what your dsl rates should be at in earlier post I told you my rates where at 727.3 kbits 90.9 kbytes they check my rates and told me that with the distance I'm from the main point that I can be at a 1.5m


WOW! 727kb to 1.5mb. Double your bandwidth improvement by just placing a simple phone call. Nice work Tazz! <_<

I knew phone line quality affects 56K speeds, but didn't know it had that much of an affect on DSL, or that the phone company could do that much about it.

Good job Tazz,
They also told me that they will be increasing speeds to the outlying areas (which I am). I am currently at the speed you are right now, but I going to keep checking into this and in a few months and I should be getting the same speed. Awesome! I'm glad I wrote in with my problem and at least it got Tazz a much faster speed rate, so something good came out of it. <_<

Guess what Tazz,
I e-mailed verizon billing and I asked about the upgrades and they said since I signed up for dsl after 2003, I am currently receiving the fastest speed for my area and they won't be upgrading it, so I am jealous that you are getting that fast of a speed. Update as of 12/29/02; I finally called verizon dsl billing and was told although I am receiving 740 K right now, verizon is doing testing currently in my area to see if 1.5 M will work. If it does, verizon usually sends e-mail to the user name created when dsl was installed and asks the customer if they want to receive the upgrade. Since the 1.5 is free it's a no-brainer. However, if anyone else is like me, then the upgrade may take several months because I live in a small town. I hope this infomation is helpful to anyone else with verizon dsl. <_<
