I could buy a better connection, but I bought my DSL about a year ago and got an old Westell. Damn Xecution and Korupt and their Wirespeed 2200s. :(

I get about 1MB download, and 100-125KB upload in New York. :)

I just wish I had one of those. I think it is only possible in one city where they test it. I have seen one person with VDSL connection on MikroPC.net. I just wonder how much it costs for those few who have the possibility to have it now. But who knows how wide they have spread after some years :mellow:

Our company advertised 6mb down and 384 kb up, I get like 3-4 mb down and like 300 kb up.
But I heard Korea has some awesome speeds, like 30 megabytes down and 30 megabytes up, for like 20 american dollars per month. Now that is awesome.

I doubt that. Is it slower than a windows 98 that dosen't even have internet access and can't even take games as large as Black and White?

Im on Broadband. 100mbps.
