0.25Mb Broadband... that's stupid.?

I did a speed check on my internet, and scored 0.25Mb.

The average for my area is 3Mb I think, which is already low, but 0.25?

We pay for a 8Mb connection, though I it is an 'up to' 8Mb.

But surely 0.25 is stupidly slow.

I cannot get a game on Call of Duty on my PS3 because I cant connect to the Activision Servers.

My question, is there any way of speeding up the connection?

Bearing in mind, I do not live in a cabled area.

    I'd call your ISP and throw a fit. If your paying for and 8Mb you should get an 8Mb.

    Remember the squeaky wheel get the greese.

    Good Luck.

    Aparently you have a CATV supplier as DSL does not run at an up to 8 Mbps.

    Let's first do some checking. Turn of modem, disconnect router, connect 1 pc via wired link to modem. Turn on pc and modem and let them warm up. Run a speed test using an internet speed test site (do not believe a downloading server's download rate is your speed as this is far from the truth). If it is 0.25 Mbps and you are supposed to be getting around 8 Mbps, contact the ISP while pc is connected directly to modem and get them involved.

    If the speed is near the 8 Mbps all is as it should be. However, remember that the internet is divided among all users in roughly equal allocation so if you have several heavy users simultaneously, each gets a lesser than full speed. If you have wireless LAN, redo your security to include MAC validation and a strong preshare key to keep hackers from hogging bandwidth.
