    512 > 64 > 1024

    This time last week we moved office. Previously we were using 512kbps ADSL between 4-6 people, which was ok. Then while we were waiting for the ADSL to be enabled in our new office, we had to survive on 64kbps ISDN! My god, it was slower than slow. I think a 56k modem would have been faster and more reliable.

    Anyhoo, the 1mb ADSL has just been enabled, and WOW! We are all very appreciative of it!

    Hexus is certainly steaming along

    i had to use 56k recently after getting use to not only my 512k at home but also the T1 (i think?!) connection at my uni halls. anyway 56k is unbearable after using fast connections for so long.

    anyhow in 10years we will prob look back and say how slow 512k was.

    no, BT ain't that quick

    Most of the lines in the UK struggle to support 512k let alone any of the stuff that's being rolled out elsewhere in the world.. we'll never have decent broadband until BT either invests a whole bunch of money in the network (unlikely), unbundles the vast majority of the local loop (also unlikely), or starts installing harware on a street by street basis like cable (never gonna happen)..

    Yup. It may say 1100 odd kbits on the connection status, but i've not managed more than 55kb/s from any downloads so far, and that's with very minimal use by others.

    My cable at home is faster than this (in real terms). At least it's enough to get a semi-decent ping in Quake3
