So over the last week or so I've been getting some pretty poor service from my ISP. Huge lag spikes in the evenings. During my FT raid last night I actually saw my in game ping hit 45000 ms. I did a speedtest.net test shortly after and got 0.25MBPS download speed and 130ms ping.

Long story short i've kind of been getting the run around from the ISP. When I called they didn't really tell me anything other then asking if I tried power cycling the router and if a tech could come to my house today. Well the tech missed the appointment and i'm going to go into the ISPs office to talk to someone.

Does anyone have some good advice in this kind of situation. I live in a rural area and there is literally only one choice for an ISP here, so the threat of canceled service won't realy work here.

Also for those who are a bit more tech savvy, what in your opinion is an acceptable minimum connection speed? My connection is DSL (again it is all that is available in the area).

Thanks for any help.
