    190Kbps? I get a steady 575-600kbps downstream on my cable modem.

    S Klass, wait till your neighbors starting to know about your Cable provider...

    "I am getting 5-6kb/s"

    LoL they 'promise' to up the bandwidth available if more customers jump on the cable bandwagon. Well by that time I won't be living in this area anymore or DSL will be here and then I'll have a choice.
    Notice I'm not revealing where I live or who's my provider! Trying to delay the inevitable I guess..

    If and when I get it/ I'd be real happy with 500kbps Downloads....Notice I said "if", I don't hold much faith in Ameritech

    GataSolo has got you beat S Klasse, his are Bytes, yours are bits (or at least that's the way you both notated it).
    Free advice, and worth every penny.

    Well that's what I'm trying to figure out too.. did he mean bits or bytes. If he did mean bytes then he's getting 1520Kbps and that's smokin'!
