    Okay, I'll byte. [​IMG]
    I have FastAccess DSL service.
    When I double-click on the Dial-Up icon in the tray on the right side of the task bar (Windows 9x/ME), the resulting window says:
    "Connected to FASTACCESS ADSL
    Connected at 1,472,000 bps".
    For a better view than Microsoft's, though, I went over to http://www.dslreports.com

    Anyway, I'm glad I use broadband. Can you believe that my very first modem was a 300 baud ZoomModem for my parents' Apple //e? I paid $300 for it around 1984!!!

    A puny 56k I'm afraid, I hardly download much off the net anymore anyway, so it doesn't really bother me.
    I don't download trailers, and I already have all the mp3's I'll ever want, nearly 1000 of them.

    Test running..........
    ** Speed 1392(down)/2951(up) kbps **
    (At least 27 times faster than a 56k modem)
    Finish.
    That didn't seem right so I tested it again at http://bandwidthplace.com/speedtest/ and got:
    2.34 megabits per second download
    1.28 megabits per second upload
    Interesting how different the tests came out.
    My dorm is connected to a T3, and it's supposed to be upgraded this month.

    ADSL.
    It's cheaper to have Cable or ADSL up here in Montreal than it is to have dialup.

    Too far from local TelCo office for DSL, and my cable company (Adelphia) is dragging its feet on adding cable modem service even though they have already upgraded all cabling to fiber-optic and already offer digital cable! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    How do you find your upload? I didn't see a test for it on that testing site.
