    Heyaz Peepz,
    I'm upgrading to 256/64K ADSL. I was just wondering what the average download speeds I would get? On say kazaa or a P2P prog. The plan I am getting cost $70 per month and I get unlimited download. This is Austrlaian pricing. Is this the cheapest around or could I find another ADSL provider in Mlebourne that is cheaper?

    Another thing that I am unsure of is the filters that need to be installed. I heard one needs to be installed for every phone in the house. Is this true?

    Thanks/

    The maximum you can download on 256k DSL is 32kb/s - so it will max out at the speed obviously.

    Yes, if you are using multiple phones around your house on the same line, you will need a filter for each.

    Realistically, you'll probably peak out at around 26k downloading.

    Just out of curiosity, what ISP is offering the $70 plan?

    Of course this is only monthly fee, I haven't included the modem cost etc. But I still reckon it's a good deal. 512/128K is $140 unlimited.

    I pay $200 a month for 1500 / 256 DSL and get 28gb worth of downloads (14gb peak / 14gb off peak) through Netspace.

    What don't you understand?

    256kbit divide 8 = 32kbytes - Your maximum THEORETICAL download speed.

    Maximum bandwidth from 1500kbit connection is around 187.5kb/s.

    but why is it divided it 8 and why don't they just say it's 32kb dl max?
