This is my first post so please bear with me. I'm not very computer literate either, so I apologize if this sounds stupid. I live in a small very rural town that has DSL internet. It is very shotty. Always going out. Terribly slow. Pretty much had to stop playing any online games due to the constant lagging, and super long download times. I am unable to get cable internet or satellite due to contractal crap with Windstream (my current ISP). I also supposedly have the Broadband 6.0 Mbps package. That is the highest that they offer in my area. Not helping at all. Windstream says that there is nothing wrong on their end. I had them replace the modem and I have had all the phone lines in the house checked and a few replaced. Is there anything that could help me? Any other internet service that I could try? I am at my witts end with this mess. Any advice and help would be greatly appreciated.
I did a speed test at speedtest.net Not sure if this is for real or not. but here are the results. 6063 kb/s-download 322 kb/s-upload ISP Windstream Communications Server: Atlanta GA Ping: 41ms
distance 50 miles. I dont know if this is helpful or not. Like I said I dont know much about computers. From what the website said these are good speeds, but I dont see these kind of speeds. I am having to stop what I am doing about every 5 minutes or so. Ridiculous.
