Let's see, dial up modem on computer is rated at 52kbps, at optimum runs around 47kbps, your running at 279kbps, that's (4 goes into 27 7, no, 6 times...) well, your getting around 6 times the speed of dial up. It ain't full speed cable, but it beats dialup. And you don't have to wait for a tech to show up during a 4 hour window the second Tuesday from next Thursday to install it!!!!
