    Remember that DSL speeds are dependant on how close you are to the nearest switching station. The further your distance, the slower your speeds. Your phone company should be able to tell you the distance you are from the nearest one servicing your area.

    Precisely. Either a DSL ISP with a station closer to you, or a Cable ISP. Cable doesn't have that problem, but it does have a problem of being bottlenecked by having too many people on at once, which does happen during peak usage hours in highly-populated areas.

    Probably not unless there is none closer to your current location.

    I might have found the problem, after talking for about 20 minutes with this one guy i got switched over to another tech support line and he started laughing and said i was amazingly lucky because my line isnt suppose to be activated until 3 days from now, so it will run just really slow until then. looks like i just need to wait 3 days.

    Thumbs up Re: Much Slower Speeds After Move

    In addition Armorsmithing can easily cost an extreme amount of Kinah pumped into it to rise to a

    decent level for when Aion Gold becomes

    profitable. Although selling armor for around the mid level 20 region is a good starting point for

    when players start venturing into the Abyss, the real business opportunities will open up at end

    WOW Gold.
    Once you attain 450 Armorsmithing skills and can start crafting the high end armor, it is time to

    spend many an hour in the Abyss. Being in the Abyss will give you many things needed for the goal

    of Buy WOW Gold very best. Firstly you are going to need to load up

    on Divine Power. Divine power can be gathered from killing the various Balaur monsters in the

    zone. Always try and work towards controlling as many fortresses as possible as this allows you to

    buy much more of the rare recipes that are available at that

    WOW Power Leveling and up

    Aion Gold Account.
