I remember the pain of 56k, man that was terrible. Wow. Right now I am on a college campus and can d/l at ~850 kb/s so cable seems slow to me now, lol.

Cool

Cable is much better, but I actually still have dial-up at home, but I am at school when I post.

I assume you mean 4 megabits/second which is 500kb/s.

nani o..? I though 4mb is equal to 4000kb? Wakarimasen.. I don't understand.. Where did u get 4mb is 500kb? Yea, I prefer Cable, it's much much faster! Dial up is slow. Osoi ne!
56k is a dial up if I'm not mistaken and it stands for 56kilobytes? I'm not sure...

4 megabits = 500 kilobytes 8bits = 1 byte
so 4000000 bits = 500000 bytes

isp's almost always advertise their download rates in megabits because you get a bigger number, but when people talk about file sizes they almost always talk in bytes.
