Yeah, well. I use the basic cable service (supposed to be 256 speed) from Charter Communications. When I download things, it normally gets it at about 40 - 90 kb/s. Recently, it's been going at about 300 - 500 kb/s. What's up with this big increase in speed and what could cause it? I've not switched my service and niether has Charter. All the bandwidth tests give between 2 and 5 mb/s. Cool.
