Update Regarding Your
Internet Access Upload Speed



Dear SBC Internet Services DSL Member,1

This is simply a courtesy message to announce SBC Internet Services (SBCIS) has increased your maximum upload speed to as fast as 384Kbps. As an SBCIS member, you can now enjoy higher upload rates and greater value in your Internet service, at no additional cost.

With the additional bandwidth, you may find it even easier to share digital photos, play online games, maintain personal Web sites and enjoy an over all higher-quality Internet experience.

This automatic upgrade has already taken place and no action on your part is required nor will your current rate for Internet service change. Your download speeds are still as fast as ever at 384Kbps - 1.5Mbps for SBC Yahoo! DSL Express and up to 384Kbps for SBC Yahoo! DSL Starter.2

We appreciate and value your continued membership.

Sincerely,

SBC Internet Services

384? I think you have been bitch slapped.. when I had lame pac bell DSL I had 384 up and 1.5 down 6 years ago, I think they are just blowing smoke up peoples ass and telling them they upgraded them when they orginaly had it all along.. or at some point downgraded people and didn't tell them.. And they are idiots..

BTW, congrats, I just upgraded your truck to now have 4 wheels...!! And we added the option of going backwards as well as forwards!! :cool:

I hate SBC. I have to pay $50 a month for 1.5/128, and on top of that I have to pay another $27 a month for a phone line I don't use. With SBC you can't have DSL without the phone line.

I'm gonna cancel and switch to either Comcast or Astound.

Later,

Ya'll want some speed? Be prepared to get this service when it hits your town. Verizon FiOS. That's fiber to your home buddy, phone, video, and internet all on one piece of fiber. Slowest package? 5Mbps up, 2Mbps down, for around $35 a month. Need more?? next is 15Mbps Down 2Mbps up for $49 and 30Mbps down, and 15Mbps up for $99/mo. It is reall amazing stuff.......


Bye bye Comcast, SBC, Adelphia....hehehehheh

Sounds interesting. I am National tech support for FiOS, from the edge router to the customer router, and all the fiber and switches in between. I see you are the founder of PITA, perhaps I should sign up, 'cause that is my daily nightmare!!
