Howdy:

How much further from the phone exchange are you as compared to your cousin?? That will make a major difference as will noise on the line (how old are your phone lines as compared to their's??) !!

Have you had your Telecom service test the phone lines??

Not what I asked.. I asked how far are YOU from your phone companies main switch or office as compared to your cousin?? That is the distance.. and 15 minutes can be 15 miles or so and distance DOES play a major role in dial-up speed..

As for noise, it is the inteference on the phone line itself due to distance, number of switched the connection goes through before it gets to your place, etc!! The phone company has ways to test this!!

Since you probably dont have the info to check where your ISP's CO is, you're better off contacting them and having one of their techs come over and help you with that issue, Like Murray said they have the equipment/systems to test this...good luck!
