Hello,

Sure you dont mean between 78 kB/s and 134 kB/s?

kb/s is kilobits/second
kB/s is kiloBytes/second.

Typical dialup speed is 54 kilobits/second, which would mean youre getting at maximum just under 3 times typical dialup speed, which  is probably incorrect.

78 to 134 kB/s would be okay-ish, depends how far you from the exchange, the quality of the wiring in the house etc etc.

Im assuming you're on the FS/128k Fair Use Plan.

The thing is that if he "recently changed" plans, there is no broadband 3:
