Hi guys, I'm going to be the proud owner of 512k ADSL next week...For other people thinking of upgrading, how much better is it with ADSL rather than 56k?

It's a big differance though you can still get lagged up at times but it is still 100% smoother than a 56k
Excellent - as I say, my B/Band is coming next week - The world of COD beware - LOL
Worlds better. I don't know about what the speed on my cable connection is (my ISP doesn't release specifics on line speeds) but I can download 400 KB/s and upload about 60 KB/s. Comparable to 5 KB/s download (my 56k was fast - I used to do 6 KB/s alot) and maybe 3 KB/s upload. You do the math :P .
I think the download speed is 512k and upload 254k - no more "connection interupted" messages - woohoo
well if i had to go bck to 56k i wouldnt play COD online anymore ADSL is the best connection well ok maybe im going to 1 MB line :) ADSL :bows: :bows: :bows: :beer:
well lets just say, I was on a 56k modem and I thought that was quick, until we upgraded to BB but at 126k, but even this is a good speed as I can still kill loads at this speed.
56k vs ADSL. Hmm, I am going to go for 56k on this argument. :fistpunch:
Just pointing out a couple of stuff:
1) 512kb ADSL isn't literally classed as 'Broadband'.
That starts at 1mb/s and above.
2) Adsl is obviously far better than 56k in terms of download speed and game ping etc..
But, u DO NOT get 512kb/s download speed. Thats the connection speed. The typical download you will get is 40-70 kb/s, possibly more if lucky. But, DON'T expect 400kb/s dls! ;)
i think adsl is good but since its not quite "DSL" then its not as fast as it can go. my speed is usually above the 1mb download and 500kb upload. P.S. if u guys want to find out ur connection speed go to http://www.dslreports.com/stest, and click on 1 of the icons and then click start after the page loads.
