    Help please?

    Ok AOL say that i can get a maximum of .05 mbps, but i know there lieing cause i used to get 4mbps,?
    when i do a speedtest it says i live 50 miles away from manchester, but i live in the north of ireland.
    Do you think aol have messed up my address and put me to the exchange in england?
    btw i am paying 40 pound a month for 0.12 mbps, (seriously)
    Ps, when i use bts line speed check (and virgins) using my own postcode it says i can get a maximum of 4.5 mbps!
    Anybody know anything about this?

    they will have a "get out" clause in the t&c's for sure

    complain lots, say your going public with it etc, when you on the phone to them ask to speak to their supervisor..............
    these are just off the top of my head but you get the idea.

    seriously though that's a shocking speed, no wonder your p****d off

    Good Luck

    me to, and im surprised they didn't help him out when he phoned.

    Also they aren't in breach of contract because they offer a service 'up to x mbit'

    Not a set service.

    That sucks.
    I pay £2 for 10mbps

    Regarding the fact that it thinks you are in manchester:

    Im pretty sure that AOL (at least they used) would direct all their customer through their own proxy. This proxy server must be based around Manchester for you.

    there are exchanges in N.Ireland. I live 5 miles away from mine (Carrickfergus) and get about 3MB speed.
