In my handy-dandy little home office, I never come within cooee of the 
monthly cap anyway (best I've ever done is 6GB billable in one month, 
cap is 15GB), and get a solid 52/53kB/s upload and download speed out 
of a nominally 512kb/s symmetrical connection. That's from ArachNet, 
who've just sold their ADSL business to AmNet.

Cheers; Leon
