    Just wondering what kind of connection you people are using and what speed you getting out of?

    Advertised as 400kbps down and dialup upload. But I can easily get 1.5 mbps on a multiple thread download. Also have a 4 gig/month download limit ! :mad:

    The ping times suck....usually 650-1000 ms! So online gaming is a joke lol

    Check out my site for more information about it.
