    just got my MOL 6500 activated today

    download from oversea webby at over 100kb/s

    used to get 50kb/s max with pacnet ADSL

    local site can go as fast as 800kb/s!!

    still far from the theortical speed, but comparatively it is still faster than MOL1500 and 512K ADSL
    We are HDD of PC & FT are MB add to storage;
    so PC never hangs with enormous storage capacity - LKY

    Gee i received my letter yesterday too. To me another 0.5Mbps isn't gonna make too much difference. It all depend on the traffic condition...

    1 great example would be like my car highest speed is 200km/h and yours is 650km/h, and if the road traffic is congested, no matter how fast your car can go, everyone can only travel at that regulated speed. so in the end, your car waste more road tax only :lol:

    And btw not many servers in the WWW can handle high bandwidth one hor...

    well said, the only diff will be the upstream caps is 384 kbps vs ISDN.

    it depends on your usage, 500kbps is a bonus to me.

    E.g. downloading Linux Distros, one .iso file will be around 700MB. You can use a download manager and fire up 10 threads to download the same time. At least i can reach the top speed of ~250KB/s instead of 185KB/s.

    Or downloading movie trailers, you can download it faster, save some time.

    For normal browsing, that really isn't much difference in terms of speed, you will only see the major difference when you download large files.

    feels like no diff in bandwidth.
