Okey dokey. Right now, I am connected at 26.4. It takes ages to load anything. I have a 56k, but the phone company says (just a few months ago it would connect at speeds over 56k) that it's the "Area". I have to keep my line (fax/business reasons, don't feel like calling up every business that uses my fax number to tell them ive changed) and do not have enough money for the line, AND DSL. What I want to know is,,,,,is there ANYWAY POSSIBLE I can up my speed, if just a little? all the DSL providers ive seen are charging at least 35 bucks a month. My line right now costs a little near that. So, can I keep my line and still connect at faster rates? I'm willing to pay a fee, just not HUGE one. one I can afford. ANY other suggestions are welcome. I don't care if it's putting peunut butter on the modem, I'll take it!
