    I think yahya is on a special offer trial price so to speak... If i wanted a 2 meg adsl connection then i would be looking at £160++ a month even a cable connection of 1 meg is around £50 per month....
    Many of our isp's require payment in advance and tie you into 12 contracts..
    Could be he's using a connection at collage maybe as well...

    ok, here's how it works

    Where i am staying, (university halls of residence) i am connected to my university's intranet, and that gives me the unversity's internet connection. That is how i get FAST, an i mean FAST speeds. The £40 is simply a charge they levy to register my ethernet card.

    Cheeky Yahya:D

    ...but

    ...but the service somes with several restrictions due to the fact that i am behind a very severe hardware firewall. no p2p, no netmeeting, no msn messenger fileshare plus a 1gb per 24hrs max download...i guess it swings in roundabouts!

    My bet is that the university has a T1 line...........No wonder with all the shared bandwidth they need. Regardless................take full advantage of it.:bbg:

    Thumbs up Comcast...........

    In order to entice more cable modem subscribers, Comcast will be doubling their download speed from 1.5 Mbps to 3 Mbps by late Nov.

    Wish I had this connection when I created my mp3 archive (2,166 files = 9.43gb) during the time when Kazza was more user friendly.
