Hi.

I was and still am strictly confused by all the talk about DSL and "speed". Tryas I might, I could not make heads or tails of the talk. When I used a dial-up modem, my downloads were always in the 4 to 11 KBps range.
With my spanking brand new SBCglobal modem however, my MINIMUM download speed is 79KBps.
Having just checked my KBps speed, it is clocking along at 93KBps or 1MB = 13.2 seconds!
(I recently downloaded an 11.2MB file in 1 min, 32 seconds).

Right now, and since I'm a dummy on things technical, my SouthWestern Bell (SBC) SpeedStream DSL modem is indicating that it is sending at 60962558 (whatevers) and receiving at 27333326 (whatevers), whatever those figures translate out into KBps.

Actually, my sbcglobal DSL is as fast as I WANT to go.

Are you sure those two numbers aren't the total number of bytes sent and recieved...not the speed.
