rojkind: Thanks guys just changed to the pro plan this morning and my speeds have dramatically increased 4762 kbps downstream and 762 kbps upstream. i think the wiring in my house may be a bit old because my exchange is about 100m from my house i can see it out the window and people at telecom have told me i should get near maximum speeds will get someone to check the wiring.Thanks,Dan
