I mean, it's slow even for dail-up...

I only connect at like 14.4 Kbps... and earlier i was getting booted after being on for about 5 minutes...

And when i try to download something its INSANELY slow... i mean the fastest it got to was 100 Bps....

Is there something wrong on my end or is my ISP (MSN) just being screwy...

hmm

My friend says that the phone company is setting up DSL stuff around the county and that may have caused my problems.

So I'm gonna go research and see if that is the case. He says that we should have DSL in the area sometime this month, and i'm interested.

If you're getting DSL and/or cable in your area shortly, don't stay with 56K dialup any longer than you have to. The extra cost is well worth it.(y)

There are numerous tweaks for improving connection speed and webpage loading, but they won't do you much if any good if you have crappy phone lines in the area or inside your home.(n)
