My AT&T DSL fluctuates from full throttle to zero in a very regular pattern (using different modems, using different computers with different operating systems)… and having tested one computer and modem at one of my neighbors that is far enough to be on a different path but most probably to the same end office (where it functioned flawlessly)…
