@Ken, I thought if you can get an ADSL connection, you can get service from any provider, regardless of how remote you are?

Well, yeah I could, but my business phone / home phone & mobile is
with Telstra, & because all services are with them I get a good deal on
my land line plans & mobile..
Iv'e only been on adsl for nearly a year at that, it wasn't available up until
this time last year..
When ive been with them for a year i'll try to screw a better deal out of em.

Is that a joke :?

Kbps = Kilobits per second
KB/s = Kilobits per second

These two are different ways of writing the same things...

No it wasnt a joke, and your comment is wrong.

Kbps = KiloBITS per second
KB/s = KiloBYTES per second :wink:

Which is the reason I tell people to get it right since they are two different things. 200Kbps is roughly 20KB/s and vice versa. People meaning 200KB/s often put 200Kbps and that is incorrect.

dslreports.com speed test result on 2006-09-06 03:07:52 EST:
13028 / 354
Your download speed : 13028 kbps or 1628.5 KB/sec.
That is 135.8% better than an average user on comcast.net

Your upload speed : 354 kbps or 44.2 KB/sec.
That is 24.5% worse than an average user on comcast.net

$62.00 per month with digital cable, so it's about $31.00 per month.

i have a line amplifier installed, which explains the fat-ass speeds. i've had 250+ clients connected on bittorent and still able to browse the internet.

did a second test, got this:

dslreports.com speed test result on 2006-09-06 03:26:49 EST:

Your download speed : 17427 kbps or 2178.3 KB/sec.
That is 214.7% better than an average user on comcast.net

Your upload speed : 356 kbps or 44.5 KB/sec.
That is 24% worse than an average user on comcast.net

seems like the servers in europe are not connected to the US very well, and west coast servers seem to be throttling thier connections, possibly because of traffic from asia.
