On my dialup, I get 2kb/s (20 kbits/s) download and 1kb/s (10 kbit/s) upload. =/
On my wireless, I get 134 kb/s (1.3 mbps) download and I don't know the upload.

My home connection has had a few free upgrades, going from 1mbps to 3.5mbps now, which I thought was really good til I read that!

Well at least here the fastest connection we can get is 8Mbps/1Mbps I think. But it's only like 2e more expensive per month than the 2Mbps/1Mbps. This is because the max speed of the 8Mbps is 8Mbps, but they only promise that the speed is always at least 2Mbps.
