Me sooo happy :D... new throughput speed with my SBC DSL. For only $45.00 a month... yeah yeah yeah, 1 year contract. But it's $5.00 cheaper than my original DSL connection (SBC). Oh, it peaks at 3 Mbps.

Just want to speak of it.

Well, you asked for it.

And before anyone asks, no...there's no photoshop, caching, or any kind of "cheating" involved.

Is that the reason why you have a fiber optic cable running from a hole in the street to your house? :p

You should call them and ask about the "pro package" ($39.99/month). Seems they are tryin ta get new DSL customers and have a deal goin on... 1 year contract though.

I called and asked about it and they said if you are an existing DSL customer you can get it for $45.00 a month (1 year contract).

1.5-3.0Mbps(down)... 384Kbps(up)... 1 Dynamic (IP address).

Check it out --->SBC DSL specials

You yanks are just too lucky sometimes. Over here in behind the times UK all I can get is a 1MB connection and it costs me £34 a month. I think I could probibly get a 3mb connection but it would probibly cost hundreds of pounds and probibly wouldn't be very reliable. Damn expencive compaired to what you lot get for your money. I think it's time I tried to emigrate.

Heh heh... Well the 3MB is actually about $100.00 US/month but with the special it's way cheaper. But you're locked into it for 1 year.

My original connection was the 384Kbps-1.5Mbps package. I was getting constant 1.2-1.3MB connections. But then I'm like only 8-9 blocks away from their switching office. :D Soooo, it's a nice connection. I started out at $30.00 US/Month. then when the year ended it jumped up a bit (just a few bucks), then their rates changed and it went up to $49.00 US/month.

Hehe, that speed test is from my dorm room, so technically it is my "home" at the moment.

At home, however, I have pretty much the same speeds that you mentioned in your first post. It caps at 3.0mbit.
