Default AOL - VERY poor speeds

Hello,

For the past few weeks on and off my download speeds have been ridiculously low.

Today it was fine until around 18:00. My download speed will not go any higher than 40kbs a second. This has happened so many times it's beggining to really wind me up. I am sick and tired of AOL customer service telling me to see what it's like the day after. This has happened far too many times now.

The strange thing is, if I download say 5 items, they all download at a speed of 40kbs. 5 x 40 = 200, why can't I get at least 200kbs on one download??

AOL have become the worst ISP I have ever been with.

PLEASE stay away. I will most definately be leaving them ASAP.

Im using an ethernet cable to the modem. This problem went away the day after i original created this post.

BUT

It has started to lower my speeds again since last night. I can't get any higher than 40kbs.

How can an ISP fail at maintaining speeds for their paying customers SO often? AOL flunk at their chosen expertise and are an embarrisment. Their reliability and lack in communication is atrocious.

They should, along with talk talk, retire. Let the other, reliable, professional ISPs deal with broadband.
