"Should" - I agree.  But in the UK from Virgin Media I have 30 Mb/s down, 
1 Mb/s up.  I have been promised an upload speed increase about 18 months 
ago to 2 Mb/s up, which is more sensible, but that increase hasn't yet 
been delivered.  I am also promised an increase within the next year which 
doubles my existing speeds, giving 60 Mb/s down and 4 Mb/s up.  Not ideal, 
but I prefer cable to ADSL.

No wonder I have four GPS devices connected to 5 PCs!  <G>
