    Ahh didn't see that. Must be due to network congestion between you and the server.

    Basic 56k

    I got a typical 56k connection, 3 around the house. One is stable or so I think. I went to DSL extreme, *a service I used to have* it showed download test at 64k then upload speed is 4k, i don't understand that... :whistle

    [I have 150k Broadband from NTL:home]

    The local phone system was upgraded to DSL about 4 months ago. I had dial-up for my first 7 years of internet connection.

    Nice. Going from 56k - broadband is a huge change when you browse a lot. It makes forum experience better too.

    I don't think any of us have T1 lines at home. At work maybe, but for home use a T1 is probably overkill.
