my AT&T internet can only give me 80/KB

by nflgrrl / January 5, 2018 11:54 PM PST

Cust Svc said they could actually upgrade me to 1.5MB, oooh wow! (sarcastic) I'm with AT&T and DirecTV, which also sucks.. Cox Cable is the only other provider in the area... should I go back to cable? I've heard both sides but to be honest I'm so far from the nearest ping tower that my options are really limited, plus I am directly below the Port of Los Angeles Marine exchange... my computer guy laughs at me... any advice would be helpful, thanks.. I'm currently lucky to get 80 MBPS.
ok: main 'puter is an HP all in 1 8" MS 8.1, baby laptop is HP w/ removable keyboard, neither have anything to do with my internet input
