    Default upload speeds to be higher than 128Kbps and download speeds doubled

    i read in the newspaper it said telecom has to double its download speeds with ISP's using its UBS agreement.think they said 7.6Mbps is what telecom has to offer. think it said it shuld happen immediately. And telecom have to give higher than 128Kbps upload speeds. The Max upload speed for ADSL is 1Mbps. the upload speed increase will be great for VoIP users.
    and users can now have "naked DSL". which means u can have a broadband line and not have to subscribe to a home phone service. They remove the dial tone from ur line so it's only used with broadband. this is great if u want to get rid of ur home line rental.

    Right we'll all get bumped up to 8Mbps/1Mbps. Considering the laughable results of the increase to 3.5Mbps, someone better start installing new equipment pretty fast then.

    If I had to choose between faster speeds and 'naked DSL' I would take the 'naked DSL'.
    Can't see why I need to pay for a land line, just to get DSL, when I have cell phone that gives me free minutes. I never use the landline at home to make calls.
