    Can you tell me the download and upload speeds? I am at school and the sites you have the images on are blocked.

    What are your download and upload speeds your paying for?
    Reset your Modem
    Reset your Router
    If you still have slower speeds, have the ISP send a hit to your Modem and they can tell you more about what's going on.

    Uhm, 500 kbps is the same thing as .50 Mbps ...

    You can reset your modem and adapter by unplugging them for at least 20 seconds, but I don't think that will help as you are getting what you are paying for.

    Some modems have on the back a pin hole for reset. But 500kps is about right. So you're okay, you can't get more from what you pay for. If offered in your are for higher speeds you have to pay for it.

    Don't know of your connection type {dial-up, dls, cable, satellite} but that's a lousy ping time.

    From Southern Calif, U.S.A to Techspot.com, I'm getting a ping time=53ms, and that's over
    13 intermediate hops.

    Usually only by improving your access to the ISP - - what kind of service are you using now and what other choices are available to you?

    Hi jobeard,

    I stand corrected. The plan I suggested, will not reduce the ping time.

    I thought that main reason for the high ping time was Queuing, especially during the peak hours.

    The only thing I had to work on was that it was a 0.5 MBPS connection.

    Too many people opt for the BB Home UL 750 or BB Home Combo UL 750, getting lured by the unlimited usage.

    Only, later do they realize how slow it is.

    I felt that there would be a qualitative difference, other than just the bandwidth, amongst the different plans. This was based on the expectation of higher priority i.e. smaller queues.

    I had never checked my own ping, but the bandwidth was fine, and my primary objectives for using the internet were reasonably well satisfied.

    Hence I suggested a change in a plan.

    I still think that the higher priced Business Plans might have a lower ping time. But then, I could be wrong again.

    Anyway, I ran the ping and tracert commands and here are the (appalling) results:

    Trace complete.

    So the bottleneck is quite apparent.

    Just googled this up. How does it sound to you ?
