wasnt sure where to post this

anyway the past few nights i keep getting realkly slow speeds like half a meg when i should be at 8meg, ive hard this froma few ppl now that they are going to reduce the bandwidth between certain times at night which totaly stinks when im paying for 8meg at £30 per month but what also keeps happening is i keep loosing my connection and have to restart my computer every time, ive tried calling them every night but ebd up sitting for about an hour waiting to speak to someone so i was wondering if anyone here has had the same problems and howdid they resolve them ?

Are you sure you have to restart your system to reconnect? Have you tried the repair connection function in XP?

AOL may not be reducing the available bandwidth, the problem might be that many users are competing for it. Are you connected through dsl, cable or dial up?

If you right click the "Local Area Connection" in the Notification area (by the clock) you can repair XP's connection. If the problem persists, you might want to call your ISP and ask them to check out your connection.
