    Help with Internet

    Hey MPGH.
    I got a new ISP today, AT&T...

    I was told I would receive 3 MB/s...
    Well I'm currently downloading WoW on my new computer, and I'm receiving;
    150 KB/s - 300 KB/s

    I chatted w/ a online rep for about a hour, which was completely useless.

    Does anyone else get this from AT&T? Because this is dumb.
    Do not pity the dead, pity the living.

    At&t is a DSL provider which means they probably gave you a 3Mbit connection which explains the speeds around 300kb/s

    You do realize a majority of people in the US have speeds faster than on a T1 line. "T1 lines can carry data at a rate of 1.544 megabits per second."
