Ah thanks thats it,

Yeah 256 is common tho, ive never head of 384 tho :| thats lil strange, same goes for the 768 :|

And yeah thats what i was meaning before Bigpond sucks, and the speeds arent that great :\ like pretty sucky, just as bad as there download/uploads aswell, well i think so from what ive seen/read/heard lol
So all over i think there not such a good ISP :S lol...my opionon tho!
