I think I've mentioned it before, but remember that QWest quotes ATM frame
rates, not IP rates.  Because of ATM overhead, you only get around 80% of
that number for TCP/IP throughput.  Still, it's fairly symmetric compared
to other offers, which is cool, but actual throughput is more like
1.2mbps down/800kbps up.

Now if only the Comcast service were 8mbps/8mbps instead of 8mbps/0.8mbps.
