    Anyone who has a faster connection than me is evil and deserves to go and live in Wales :). Which is nearly everybody

    maximum speed from a 56kbps modem is just over 7K

    56kbps (kilobits second) - 8 bits in a byte =7 kilobytes second

    of course this a theoretical speed and would require a prefect connection etc etc

    I use my school network for normal internet, no idea what it is but it is bloody slow.
    The other times I get about 986 bytes per second, using a 9.6Kbps dialup mobile phone.

    You all get nothing but pure hatred from me. Well maybe not all of you. But anyone with a DSL or better.

    Cant wait til I get to Uni, high speed, no monitoring. Nice.

    very very unlikely, since Unis are having more and more trouble with virus' and hackers (because most are at Uni!). not to mention other illegal content.

    You're kidding? Man and I thought mine was slow! I've got 56k too and currently I'm at 48.0kbps, (is that good for dial up? It is ISDN though) have never actually managed to get to 56, 48kbps is the highest.:mad:

    Well, I didn't hink you guys would believe me when I told you my connection speed so I'll put a screendump with it. This connection really, really, REALLY rocks and it's virtually costless. Check the screenie. :p
