I'm still stuck on 512/128, and I've had it for at least 2 yeatrs now. Damn BT, they've only lowered the price down by a few pounds, and there's a high chance of capping bandwith as well in the near future :/
I'm in Raleigh NC and I haven't gotten an upgrade. My line is terrible. I checked my benchmark and mind you at the moment I'm hosting a BF1942 server with only 3 people on it. But I'm at 1.2DL and 194UL it seems rather low so once people get off of the server, I'll be restarting and resetting everything but still....
Pfff. My friend is actually getting FREE internet at the moment because he subscribed to a 2mb service, but the switch from a 512k connection does not allow him to go directly to a 2mb service from another ISP. So, what the ISP is doing is giving him FREE internet at 512k until they convert his connection to the 2mb sevice. They're saying that the estimated date of activation will be end of Feb.
I have 3072 kbits down and 500 kbits up atm, but it will be upped to 4000 down and 770 up. If I fork out an extra 20 euros/month I'll get 10000 kbits down and 1050 kbits up. But I don't think I'll do that.
