Angry Thanks BT - v2

Not sure if anyone can help me with this, as the problem i'm sure is with BT's equipment. For the last few months my connection has become slowly more unstable, I found about 3-4 months ago the only way to stay connected was to force my m0dem (diamond supra 56e)to connect at 28k, this was playable until a couple of months ago, whith pingspikes making the game unplayable. It'll start off at 200-250 which is OK with me but as soon as I get in a fight it's up to 800-1400 and if I hit anything it's just luck (or spam ). As soon as I die (which is soon ) it drops back again. Seems as if the connection just can't keep up with the game.
Tried different ISP's including Jolt's and 3 different modems, win98 and 2k, and another PC.
I've tried to report it to BT a few times but they say they only guarantee 22kbps on a PSTN line, but last week they sent an engineer. He tried to connect on his BT laptop, expecting to prove it wasn't their fault and managed to transfer 4.5kbytes - in 2 minutes. After changing the line over to a spare he said it'd be passed onto the exchange engineers. Finally today the fault progress report said it's been repaired, but I just tried it and it still sucks. I haven't been able to play a decent game online for weeks and it's driving me nuts. Sorry for the long complaint but if anyone can help.....please... I want to FRAG!!! .

(Note:anyone saying get ISDN/DSL will be hit with a stick: I'd be happy to pay whatever it took if I could get a digital conn.)

Did they give you a new number to connect to recently?

Unhappy

Sorry, but that's not the cause, I don't use BT's ISP service and have tried different ones. Looks like my online playing is over for now . Thanks for trying to help anyway .
