I don't blame you for being fed up with AOL I left them back last April currently with Falconnet well not for long they had gone down the pan as they are selling up.
So I'm now in the process of moving to ADSL24.
"so I don't want to be paying more really"
If you pay more you get a far better and decent service.
A Couple of questions Id like for starts.
1. Do you have a Router and if so what Make is it?
I will point you in the direction of your line stats so I can see what speed you should be getting.
2. Fill in the blanks and sam knows, he will tell you what LLU is available and your exchange.
Post back for further assistance.
