Sometimes if you just wait the service gets better. The phone cable
was cut on a new construction project 2 blocks from my home.
Before the cut I could only connect to the internet at 28 to 30k.
When the cable was fixed my connection speed was 46k. The local
telco (ALLTEL) must have replaced some very old copper with
fiber during the repair. Another factor that can affect your
connection speed to the internet is your ISP. Because of some
poor service I have been using 2 ISP's. Both are located in the
same town. My old service will still connect at 46k but my new
ISP connects at 50666 every time I connect with them. Before we
cast blame for our situation we should do as doooooh points
out and ask some questions about the services that are available
in a new area before we move there.
