    I don't use bittorrent, but I get around 1.8-1.9 Mbs download and 360 Kbs upload. It's pretty close to what I pay for: 2Mbs/384Kbs. My ISP is Earthlink Cable, provided by Time Warner. So it's basically exactly the same as Road Runner, except I get all the cool Earthlink benefits.

    I hear Cablevision's Optimum Online has download speeds well over 5Mbs, which I think is insane. I wish it was available in my neighborhood. :'(

    I Have 600 Down 128 Up I Think.....I Get Around 50 Avererage On BT And About 600KB/s On The Web For Some Really Weird Reason....Lol It Soon Lowers To 100KB/s But By Then The Files Nearly Done!!

    5Mbps? manz...tats really insane...
    the place where i come from(singapore), the isp jus recently lauched 3Mbps cable service...up from 1.5Mbps. but their upload speed is still capped at 128kbps! how pathetic can they get?
    as for dsl...1.5Mbps was launched recently too...but itz an on-demand thingie, n u gotta pay SGD$0.104 per MB used...tats roughly about USD$0.05/mb...
    tat kinda sucks...

    anyway...back to the topic...i'm asking this becoz i love bittorrent as it helps me get files which i cant find elsewhere...but i'm not really satisfied with the current speed i'm getting on my 512k dsl. i'm getting only ard 20-30kB/s max for some files...while always maxing out my ul speed at ard 29kB/s.
    was thinking of converting to cable so i could get better dl speed generally...either on kazaa or http downloads...jus wanted to know how it affects bittorrent since its supposed to be a 1 for 1 speed, although we all know this is now true 90% of the time...thanks for ur inputs...

    Well I get great speed on bittorent, ofcourse depends on seeds but I can usually reach 100KB/s per torrent, I have gone up to 250. My upload depend on what I set it at, but the max is about 50-60 KB. ( i choke it when browsing and stuff not a leech)

    I am on cable.
