No, the line from AT&T's server to your house. Everyone in your area links up to the same line.

^^True!

Also if they are big into P2P then they are going to be sucking up bandwidth.

Put together a neighborhood "watch" team that goes around and checks peoples computers for P2P software....



Well, you could see if AT&T can help, but most likely they will tell you you're fine and with those speeds, I would agree. It's likely that there are just more people on your line and that is why it's slower.

DSL blows. My friend has it and he lags on xboxlive SO MUCH. Glad I have cable internet, I'm getting a good 15 Mb/s a second on download and a measly 0.97 Mb/s with a 108mb/s wireless connection (wireless N/G) and a good 6-9 mb/s download and 0.93 mb/s upload with an 11mb/s connection (wireless B)
