have you checked your speed at www.speedcheck.net?

if you're not recieving the service that you're paying for then you need to complain to the ISP.

Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.

You'll never get the full speed that you pay for. That being said if you want to open up your speed, then you'll have to purchase it from your ISP. That's the only way to make it any faster.

1) speedtest.net gives much more accurate results than scan my speed.

2) please don't necropost.
