    256K here, my ISP is now trying to get everyone on cable, and even took down the 128K subscriptions, and upgraded them to 256K. You don't hear me complain !

    Ugh! -- I'm on a 33.6 kbps -- but I only get about 2.8 kbps if I'm lucky. My friend has a T3 in her dorm room -- I get to use it every once in a while. It's VERY nice.

    For the first time in years, I get to say I'm NOT on dial-up. I got cable last Friday... it's only one-way, but it gets 750kbps.

    I have a 56k modem, but only get 19k of connection from my isp. Can you believe that?

    T3 Connection? is that faster than DSL?? I'm so jealous with her. Probably someday I'll go visit her in your dorm and have a taste of what it likes to be connected on a T3 connection.

    T3, I guess it's 45Mbit's/second.

    I have ADSL 512Kb/s (up/down). I'm more than pleased.
