Very nice price-to-performance ratio. I'd give a lot for that kind of upstream, and $50/mo. to Comcast doesn't seem to be enough giving to receive it.

I'm pulling 4112/353 with Comcast. It looks like they bumped up the downstream and upstream slightly since I last checked.

http://www.pcpitstop.com/internet/Bandwidth.asp is what I used.

Its quite the bang for the buck, I just wish they'd offer a Naked DSL Line, I'd get Vonage in a heartbeat. I'm pretty happy with DSL as a whole. When I had Cable gaming was a bit hit or miss, my connection was kinda variable atthe time. With the Dedicated Service, its pretty constant.

I have Verizon DSL (recently upgraded) similar to Rookie's, but I'm paying $35 a month because I didn't want to sign a 1 year contract.

I've got Sprint DSL at $25/month. It's 512kb down, 256kb up. Testing my connection back home, I was getting 488/140.

It's not blazing fast, but it's great for gaming and browsing. I had 3mb cable, but it was terrible. I was getting 40k down, and 240k up during peak hours.
