You should ask your ISP I’m sure they would be qualified to answer your question/questions.

Has the slowdown only started recently, was it a sudden thing?

What’s your advertised speeds meant to be?

I had a similar problem with my (cable) speeds awhile back, couple of calls to my cable co. and I found out the problem was at their end and it was being worked on.

A call to your ISP would at least tell you if it’s something on their end, or something at your end that you need to troubleshoot. Failing that, my own ISP/cable co. has a service status page, if AOL have one and your speed permits, perhaps a visit there may uncover something.

Where is the speed so slow?
Is the speed slow on every web connection?

Might it be possible that you torrented a lot and your ISP has now decided to throttle down your bandwith because of it?

Switch to another carrier preferably cable.
