    Nice, but how many of these prices include bandwidth limits? My ISP NTL imposed a 1GB a day limit well over a year ago, think I took notice of that for about 3 minutes, gone past that nearly everyday since.:P

    3000/384 for $45 a month here in Central Florida(started out at 2000/384). DSL is 1500/384 for $49 a month.

    and that's pretty sweet.

    Cable account gets free upgrade soon!

    I couldn't resist sharing it with the world

    I recently moved and getting nothing but improvements.

    My old connection had some issues with the cable modem for it wasn't quite compatible with their new optimized network for cable connections.

    This new place got me a) a new modem, b) choice to pick a channel id when I experience latency, c) I can see how many users are on my line and can switch to a less busy one to maintain optimal performance and d) the upstream went from 128 to 256kbit

    Now I finally got news that it will get another 128kbit extra for free which finally makes it usable for me. But even better, I am getting an additional mbit to my downstream.

    Seeing is believing, especially with this crappy internet provider as UPC is. But we will see in May how things go.

    Currently:
    1536 / 128 <-- official, but I got 1536 / 256 (180kbyte/s down and 25kbyte/s up is my average experience)

    Becomes:
    2560 / 384 <-- nice .. now it is cheaper then the DSL alternative I wanted to switch to I don't mind downloading a .sql dump with about 300kbyte/s and still having enough bandw left for normal browsing

    For about €40 per month I think I am quite settled there!
