I'm curious... since I've been back in Seattle for the last 2 months, my ATT cable is running at a healthy 1.7MBs - must still be on my own Segment. On the flip side, my apartment in Sydney, AU is running at a blistering 80k hehe gotta love the pacific hop (but the beaches are better there)[}:D]

1.3 megabits on ADSL.  I pay roughly double the normal ADSL.  Cable is also offered here but its castrated and its dog slow.  At my previous residence in another neighborhood, I was getting much faster speed for half the price using Roadrunner cable.

1.9 megabits/sec

Sold as Bellsouth "Fastaccess DSL", but it's actually over fiber to the curb, then CAT5 cable into my house.  So it's not really DSL...  

Runs pretty good, always get 220+ KBytes/sec downloads from good servers.

Comcast really did chop the speed down didn't they? Mine seems to run only half as fast as it did when @home ran the network. Comcast is promising @home speeds here in Maryland by the end of the year, I'll believe it when I see it.
