Download speed is very slow. Under a 100kbs. How do I improve this. No I can't afford the faster dsl packages. I think I have the 1mbs package but I never get that speed? Sometimes if I'm lucky between 200-250kbs.

100 Kbps download speeds is an average speed on a 1024 or 2048 kbps DSL line. The maximum on a 1024 kbps DSL line would 150 kbps download.

DSL Up to 2048kbps
Down stream: min 416kbps; max 2048kbps
Up stream: min 64kbps; max 512kbps

If you devide the above you will get the best speeds of on a 1024 Kbps DSL line.

So while we'll do our absolute best to give you the very best speeds possible at all time, performance may vary from time to time, depending on the factors mentioned.
