I live in Canton...and my options for internet are either RoadRunner or AT&T DSL (blows).

I can't seem to exceed about 7 Mbps with either.

Any suggestions?

My wife and I both run our businesses on DSL . She's owns a graphic design company and I run a construction company. Both of use run very large programs online and videos.
We never have an issue. Our speed is 100.0 Mbps. It all depends where your tower is located. We are very close to one. But, we/anyone will have issues with anything greater than 4Mbs any way, it could take an extra minute or so for down load.

Side note. Does anyone remember in the 90's what DSL stood for? (D... S...... L....) Lets say my wife still to this day laughs when she reads or hears DSL.

Your problem may be the distance from your nearest local hub. (The boxes you see that are a grey color, usually taller than they are wide. With company's name on them At&t,Verizon, Qwest, Etc.) Your physical distance may be creating a lot of bit errors and problems keeping a good connection.

Is Verizon available in your area? If so they have fiber optic service which should blow away any (DSL/Cable) prodiver away at the moment. COSTLY though. I've never had any problems with my At&t DSL though i have a dry loop without a phone line and i'm super close to box out in front of the neighborhood.

Verizon Fios base speed is 15mbs. At&t's highest speed is 18mbs.

Verizon FIOS details


Digital Subscriber Line or if backwards LSD

You can also go to dslreports.com which is very helpful.
