yeah the fact is that most sites wont let a single client download that much that fast anyway. I know that most dl sites are capped at ~256kbps

Yep it is, unless it is a really good service like the sun microsystems download mirror, it is fast even on my connection

im on 20mb cable (virgin media) and i rarely get more than 512kbps per connection, most sites cap it.

cheaper because we get landline, mobile, tv and internet all from Virgin

otheriwse i think the 20mb cable broadband is £20 a month, but i think new members get half price for the first couple.

Only available in some areas + theres an installation fee

We have TV and Phone and Internet atm would it just be upgrading the service! :D
