Beat me to post, +1




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

From here it looks like the same thing that happens when you exceed your data cap (packets dropped to keep speed down to 64k).

On the side, why packet loss, not throttling?

You can't hold packets in a buffer forever, eventually they have to be dropped...
