Did you record any speed test before you switched over and if so can you advise if there is any difference?

No proper speed test, taking into account I was on  slow^H^H^H^H Go Large - Everything was slow.. (except ofcourse :) But, few hundred Kb/s from most of the web sites I use, I've not used any torrents recently.. So I have no idea what xnet is like for torrents.. but ofcourse.. thats all relative to the torrent..

I did notice, my pings are higher to most gameplanet TF2 servers.. but, only by about 30ms - 40ms (I've not had interleaving turned off yet..)

I guess, to give you a far-from-technical answer, I can game whilst other people are using the connection.. RDP/VPN sessions to various companies i work for are much smoother... (all of whom are not xnet clients)

my line syncs at about 700K or near abouts, But either way.. its good for the $50 a month I pay - Everything seems slow when you are used to using high speed links and come back home to dsl :P
