    How fast are you connecting now of days? I currently am at 256k..not so fast but faster than dial up that I was at. What is your connection?

    Compared to the dial-up that I was using before, Yes. It is great to be able to download a 10MB file in less than a minute, instead of waiting a couple of hours.

    I'm on a DSL connection now. I believe it's 1MBps down, and 256KBps up. I'm not sure though. It's definitely not as fast as my cable connection was, but I can't get that where I live now. :(

    Yeah. Where I live, there is a select few companies that you can get DSL from which stinks because I can get 728k for 20/month if it was available where I live.

    How come I cannot get my full 256k? I pay for 256k down internet.. but only recieve like 30k down. What's with that?

    When you are talking about 30k down, are you talking about 30 kilobits or 30 kilobytes?
