    well, i dont think you're getting 10mbps, unless youre Swedish or Japanese
    (or paying for a high dollar business line)
    is this just what your network adapter is reporting?
    network adapters are 10/100 Ethernet
    (unless you get a Gb adapter, then its 10/100/1000)
    meaning it is compatible with 10mbps or 100 mbps networks
    max line speed it means i guess, but your ISP isnt giving you that,
    if they are, i am moving next door to you

    i am on high speed cable broadbrand blah blah blah....
    and we get 5mbps, which is fast,
    but even a 10mbps adapter would handle it i believe,
    as the actaul transfer speeds never reach the rated 5mbps
    now the adpter is supposed to auto-detect the line i think,
    so a reboot would probably clear up its reporting as a 10mbps adapter,
    or maybe a modem reset

    note:
    10mbps = 10,000 kbps, so you see that even on a 10mbps adapter,
    youre only using a fraction of its speed

    Sympatico doesn't offer 10 or 100 mbps speeds. Their Sympatico High Speed Ultra is only 4 mbps.

    But I suspect you don't even have that. Probably the 3 mbps High Speed.
