Internet (DSL) Speed Availability

We are rural. Our only internet option is CenturyLink DSL. We signed up for the max speed they could provide (6 mbps). I wanted to get rid of our landline associated with account. However, CenturyLink says they can only provide 3 mbps to our address if we MAKE ANY CHANGES to our account. How does this work? Seems like if CTL has the hardware in place to provide our current 6 mbps, they must be using some software "somewhere" to throttle us down. Is there any device I can use to continue getting our current speed?

Internet Speed

I have a question about internet speeds.
I am currently with Cox, and they offer up to 100 Mbps download, up to 10 Mbps upload and 1,024 GB data plan. Now I received an offer from Frontier with Pro Internet 3M/512k, they said, however, that it is a direct line and not shared as with Cox and would therefore not be any slower than my current service.
Are they telling me the truth?
Thanks everyone!

Email URL - does it stay the same?

If an old email account, that is discontinued, and not completely deleted - if that is even possible - is relaunched, will it have the same URL, as the old account? And if an old email account is deleted, but then someone makes an account with the same name, will it have the same URL as the old, deleted account? I have a problem with this and I want a new account to have the same URL as an old account, is that possible? Thanks :)

EAP? Is my service provider using my connection?


We downloaded a program called wifi manager, my friend is better than me in computers and connectios. He told me that the EAP in the image attached was to WIFI booster but I told him that I never had a booster before. He went to the neighborhood and found that it was very strong nearby, his explanation was that my service provider is using my connection to distribute as a WIFI for other clients. He advised me to change the router to one that is not given by the service provider.
I have a fiber connection by the way, after he told me this I blocked the MAC address related to the EAP below, but it still have a conneciton to the same channel and frequency (9,2452).

Can someone please help to explain if this is true? My knowledge in these matters is extremely low :(

Webpage visit counter

Do you know of any webpage counter that I could embed in my Drupel site pages to see how many visitors have viewed the page? Is this something that I could get from Google Analytics? If so, what I am trying to do is add the counter to the bottom of several pages in white font so that it can only be seen by highlighting it if you know it is there. I hope this makes sense!
