That is true, just forgot to mention it. When I setup the DSL line back in
Nov 2005, speed tests (SpeakEasy's) showed 757kbps up and 1264kbps up,
which is indeed about 80% of line speed. I got these numbers both with the
provided ActionTec router and with the (Linux supported) Sangoma ADSL PCI
card I am currently using. TTYL.
