i would agree why cant they say megabytes for a download speed, i guess they do it becuase it makes it seem bigger to people who dont know what they are talking about, but i agree just say everything in a xxxxbyte form, why mess it up and thrown in well this is xxxbits, and then move and then start talking about xxxxbytes, so dumb

I use 1.5 mbps DSL. The ping sucks, and it's moderately slow for 'high speed'.

Gaming on my connection sucks. I, for one, cannot play UT3. 120 ping? No, forget it.
