    Im on 1.5Mbit cable. Have been on cable for almost 5 years now. I would rather to without internet access than have to sit behind a 56K again!

    averaging out dsl reports and cnet bandwidth tests (and not using netryders link) I get an average of around 2.7 mb/s... therefore maybe I had a burst of 3.4 mb/s :)

    i have to agree with Un4gIvEn1 ...if i had to go back to dial-up i think i would pack in the net ...the things i like to do on the net take lots of bandwidth ..just ask my ISP 100gigs down last month....lol
