    i heard it should be around 450 kbs, i tested it on some website, and it said mine was around that. but EVERY file i download is 90kbs. Even worse, this morning, it turned to 30kbs, which is VERY slow. How do i check what the speed is and should i complain to verizon?

    Well, that sucks!


    Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

    The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

    If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL
    http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2357195 <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
    and your IP will be disguised.

    Copy/paste that link here.

    Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

    Here's also the Line Quality Tests FAQ to help you understand the results. This will answer some questions about the line quality display.
