Default adsl???

Now I got a 750Kb adsl line, does that 750 kilabytes or 750 kilabits??? Me and my brother were arguing over it and I think it means kilabytes!! Also why does an adsl line not download at full 750kb and instead downloads at 80-90kb!!!!

Thanx in advance

Default Re: adsl???

I think is bytes.. not sure..

But if you ask an ISP on why you dont down load they will tell you this:
"We garentee upto 750kb speed" the the actual 750k

Why arent you getting the speed.. A few factors.. The age of teh phone line in your house, how many splitters in your home. And most importantly, How long of a copper line are you on till you hit the switch that converts to fiber optic.
