Bulldog Broadband Technical & Request

Hi all..

This is kind of a deal request and technical help combo.. I took out Bulldog broadband over 1 year ago, and I think it was 4mbps then. Everything used to be fine, then when they upgraded us to 8mbps the connection would be lost after a few minutes.
Then they thought they needed to cap off my speed as my line couldn't handle it. They capped it off at 7 and it's never gone higher than 6.8 but it's been fine. Bulldog told me that I didn't live close enough to the exchange ( even though they said it was 1 mile away from my home)
My question is: now that they've brought out 16mbps is there any point me upgrading if my line won't handle it? & would i get a better more reliable speed with a different modem?
I've asked Bulldog but get passed around not really being told the answer.

My deal request is any better deals than bulldog really. I need unlimited downloads and ideally 16+ speed if my line can handle it. Not bothered for a phone line but if it's part of the deal I'd take it.

Sorry this is for long! Thanks for anyone that stuck with it and can help.

I'm not sure about the 16mb/s but the 6.8 cap you have now is probably right for 7mb/s as other factors will determine the true speed.

I would think that the exchange will be the upgrade for 16mb/s and that your phone line would then be able to handle it. I expect someone more knowledgable would know about that :)

I'm on NTL cable 10mb/s [promised upgrades in the near future I read somewhere]. No problems with it so far...
