this summer i signed up for 256k dsl..they told me i would get a little more, but not much..for a few months i was doing roughly 420k, and recently it was down for a day..and now i get closer to 560k average..cant beat that, can you? imean bandwidth wise you could, but i was told i would get less then half of what i actually get. (though i think you can all figure it out, by 560k imean roughly 70KB/s..though its between 68 and 72 usually)
