I started with DSL and was happy with the price/service.
Then after a yr and half started to intermittingly loose serious bandwidth. I'm talking dial up speed.
Ran a wire straight from the box in the garage to a new phone port that I laid on my desk for the test.
Same problem, and verizon kept telling me the problem was on my end.
( also changed hardware )
Glad you resolved yours, we never resolved ours.
Verizon said we had to live with it.
I said no I don't. Enter comcast cable.
Now I'm back with verizon being fios entered the neighborhood.
DSL has many connection points along the way and over time become compromised, but I'm telling you nothing new.

I called at&t and said my internet has been been wonky, could a lightning strike have anything to do with it? They replaced the modem for free and bumped up the speed... or the modem auto-upped the speed (idk which) So internet was actually noticeably faster and fun to use! However, the gremlins couldn't stop there... 3 months later, service kept dying with speeds slower than a paralyzed snail. The technician that came had to do 3 trips to hammer out the problem, he found that rain was getting inside the aggregator box for the subdivision and happened to drip right on my phone lines. Thus they had corroded and weren't conducting properly. Once that mess was fixed my service was flawless till my dad switched over to fiber (that was a very very speedy day)
