...which is nice. I'll find out when I get home if they really mean it, or if that's just boilerplate.


Coo, they mean it:

Available Bandwidth                 Cells/s           Kbit/s 
  Downstream          :             5358             2272 
  Upstream            :              679              288 
Not bad for a free upgrade!
