What's the download speed for it? (your internet) Somewhere around 300kb/sec it should be.

Yeah sometimes the download speed will flucktuate (i think i mispelled that word). Sometimes i will get speeds of up to 1000kb/sec and then it'll gradually go down to 500kb/sec. But it's good to hear you have highspeed net. Always good to have.

I'm so happy, I've had viruses and crap on my computer for a few weeks now and I manage to find my windows xp disk. So I formatted by comp and reinstalled and bam runs good as new. With the viruses n what not my net was downloading at a measly 100kb/sec, sure that's fast as hell for most ppl (56k users), but for me it wasn't, I was able to download at about 300 - 400kb/sec on average. But now I'm at 600kb/sec easy because now comcast raised their download, and I think upload speeds. They sent some kind of letter saying blah blah blah now at 6mb/sec yadah yadah yada. So now I'm happy.
