Where's the problem?

My problem is:

I have between 35&40 psi. water pressure to my house from the meter. The meter has the same pressure from the service line across the street.

My neighbors on either side have 118psi to their houses and have their pressures regulated back to 60-80 psi.

There are two mains on the opposite side of the street from my house. A 16" low pressure line and a 12 high pressure line.

Yesterday, the water dept. determined that I was connected to the 16" low pressure line so they tapped my service into the 12" high pressure.

The pressure at my house is still 40psi. However, they did increase the gpm flow from 13gpm to 20gpm at the service side of the meter.

My question is: Why is my water pressure still so low and other houses around me have hose bursting pressure? Could there be a kink in the service line below the street before the line reaches my water meter?
