ANYTHING is faster than dial-up! I had an opportunity to use a DSL system over the December holidays, and I thought "WOW! This is really fast!" Now that I have FiOS, I have to say, "Why is that DSL so slow ?" when I visit.

2 Mb/s D/L, 768 Kb/s U/L, shared by three users. That is the fastest available in my area. At least it's DSL and not on the cell network, so it's stable. There is a new service now from Kolbi, up to 10 Mb/s, but it could be years before they get the equipment in my neighborhood. They don't even have any more slots in the rack for what they have now here. Life in Costa Rica!
Not my regular cable, but here in Atlanta for the month of June. I have Road Runner at home.
I pay 39.99/mo for this, guess it's OK, test under full load, wife and 4 kids all hammering the network.
Residential cable access. BTW I'm not hardwired to a router. This is the speed over a wireless card connection (wireless router about 30 ft away).
More than enough speed for me. I can scan the ubuntu repositories in 40, 50 seconds. Repository file download is often 1 mb+/s, at least 330 kb/s while streaming video. I don't do hulu or streaming netflix, so no need to complain.
