this is real intresting. i guess what they do is that they limit the
bandwidth on the routers rather than on the cable medium. Here at my office
we hav a 128k spectranet conn over a dsl link. the link is speed limited by
the dsl data layer itself! this gets me transfer rates of max 13.5kb/sec! As
far as service goes, it is real great. I get good ping times, and the
service has had only 1 outage in 1 month. I have been connected to servers
for days at times, and the bandwidth is also very consistent!
