    Default Higher connection not felt ...

    hi i've upgraded my 256k broadband to 512kps, but the higher connection doesnt really seem to diff from my previous one.

    is there anything i need to configure on my modem or/and settings etc?

    Read the ads........it says: 'maximum' 512......not that it always will be 512.....marketing ploy. They can always hide behind this sentence when they don't deliver what they promise.......

    The maximum bitrate 512kbps refers to your bandwidth, it doesn't necessary affects your download speed. For example, if your one download connection is 30kbps, it means you can have roughly 17 connections at 30kbps (subject to operating conditions too) without affecting the average download speed (30kbps of each connection).

    That's why subscribing to 3500/6000 kbps doesn't necessarily speed up your downloads although in a lot of cases it does.

    well, the recent marine internet cable cut in the Philippines has caused our internet to go very slow. wonder when will they fix the issue.
