512 downstream/256 upstream would be very reasonable. I have 1.5Mbps down/256Kbps up now with Sprint. But if somebody knows what upstream would be for 256 downstream I'd be grateful. I'd like to do VoIP and teleconferencing (using something like Apple's iChat AV) and I need to figure out my budget; if I don't nail it down now I know I'll just buy the bandwidth on impulse and end up buy the 1Mbps service, which I don't really need.
And who on Earth is buying the 2Mbps service? What was it, $600 @ month U.S.?!? For that kind of money, I could lay my own fiber optic cable to the states and maybe get some digital TV in the bargain. Jeesh.
To boldly go where no wig has gone before.
