hello, i was under the impression that the bandwidth that you got from DSL
depended on the package that you got from the phone company..
I.E. i myself am getting what they call the "Bronze Plus" package which
gives me
up to 768 up/128 down. but at no time does it promise that the "minimum"
will be there at all..
ie can go down to 0 at bad times.. i seem to average around 240k (lousy i
know)
