Wanadoo's 1.1Mbps Service

Upload is 256Kbps, so that's a quarter of the download capacity. In real terms that's 120K/s down and 30K/s up.

I didn't think surfing the web would be quicker, but the Trailers Over At Apple can start playing really soon now and it's kind of like streaming them because even on large they download faster than they play. Plus if I am on a site like IGN looking at one of their Photo Gallery Pages with FireFox I can open loads of windows and they all load very quickly, even though each window has a big high res picture on.
