I got off the phone with Verizon today, again without resolution to my problem.
I had a transfer speed of about 59K while I was talking to this guy on the phone. The hardware and everything checks out ok. I also had a speed

have roughly a 800K line, and I never see anything close to this on download speeds. I know it's not the fastest line, but it should still be
I've been on the phone with Verizon too many times, and nothing ever gets resolved. I was losing the connection before.

This guy mentioned me cleaning out the cache and stuff, but I know I'm not that clogged up, I don't use Windows XP that much, which was what I was

I'm sitting there telling him the transfer speed, but it's like I'm not really acknowledged, because on his end everything looks ok.
I feel like going back to cable if I can't get this resolved. An introductory offer might be worth looking into.
