Why...bad bandwidth? All the people in my neighborhood are old people so most of them hardly use the bandwidth much.

My parents are paying what...$35 a month for AT&T FastAccess DSL 6.0, 6mbps download (750kb/s), and 512kbps upload (64kb/s)...the fastest in the area. The cable internet over here is like $50 a month for 3mbps that is always going down and crap.

That's not a bad speed. What is the advertised speed?

Also with torrents it's usually not your dl speed killing your connection, it's your upload speed.
