    Hi

    What sort of school do you have running on a 5.6 meg connection. I used to work in a primary school and had to use an onsite proxy and we had a 10 meg connection with 60 odd pcs.

    We are running a 1Mb uncapped ADSL line. For South Africa this is a relative novelty, and it is darn expensive, though prices have started to lower slightly.

    @Dilbert:

    Not burst our bubble, as it looks like you are not getting what you are paying for in upload speed.

    We on the other hand are only paying for 10Mb each way and as you can see:

    We've recently had a brand new wireless link put in, at a stunning speed of..... 2mbit! Yay! To download a 3 - 4 gig file, its actually quicker to walk home, download it and bring it back, and i've only got sky broadband at home!

    Upload is always a problem, the speedtest site isn't great for it, but it constantly being logged with C&W as its never what they promised. As for paying, we've set up a payment for the % share, so if we only get 20mb upload we only pay 20% of the 100meg price...if you get what i mean
