    Hey ZAnwar, go for the 1Mbit for £40 line. Yeah I know it costs more, but you're gonna be disapointed with the 512k line. Trust me :D

    Naturally being postitive :p
    I have downloaded at 60kb/sec on 512

    And if you are only downloading at 50kb/sec that gives you the rest of your available bandwidth to surf...

    I don't know what people are moaning about, from what I have seen, 512k is excellent !!!!!!!
     
  17. hey zanwar, 512 is great. at least games are actually playable now! :D :D mmmm... counter strike...

    and i get downloads of 80kb/s quite often. 60 is about normal for me. which is bloody fast frankly, compared to a 'normal' 56k dial up.

    downloads will be no more than 60 kbs on a 512 line,
    but enjoy your new connection who ever your ISP is :D
    ADSL isent allways as good as ppl make it out to be, jsut wate until you start having problems. lol
    if you need more info on ADSL goto www.adslguide.org and select your isp forum there.

    no iam not saying that at all , its jsut that ADSL in the uk is not all what every one expect its to be, some times there are lots of problems with it becasue all the ISPs are money Grabbing fat cats and only care about how many ppl they can take money from and dont care about the serviace they provided
    and yeah i wish i did have a 5mg sec connection
