Xtra Go 1GB 256/128

I recently got the Xtra Go 1GB 256/128 ADSL connection and I am very
disappointed at the speed. It does not exceed 60-70 kbps for download (my
data volume is still well below the cap of 1024 Megabytes) , only a bit
faster than the 56k dialup. I would like to know the actual speed achieved
by those who also join this plan.

How are you testing the speed Phillip?
Try these tests.

For just another $5.00 you can get 1Mb/256

I'm not on that plan, but it should go faster, so I would be complaining.
