    Cable is not that common here, homes to far apart. Massive download costs (up to 17c / Mb)

    Only one company has ADSL over 1500Kbit (and it only started in Jan 2005)

    I am lucky enough to be on one of their DSLAMs and get 800Kbit / 3Mbit.

    ugh, I don't even know what 56k is like.
    Oh the joys of living in rural Newfoundland.
    Try having a 24.0Kbps connection that dies every half-hour.

    I got you all beat.

    Currently I'm using 14.4k. (I keep this modems just for special occasions like this).
    I did have 56k but the modem died.
    Not too bad on this site cause there's not too many pics.
