    Still on Adventure. Was thinking of changing to Go Large when they announce the new plans but am glad I held off!

    Am looking for a provider for when I move into my new house in a month.

    Any suggestions?

    Well I get 2.6mb speeds, sufficient enough for me, far better than the dial up speeds ive been getting over the last few weeks.

    I make up for my slower speeds by being a bandwidth hog, 25 gigs so far, and my month ends on the 6th of Dec. (And thats with slow speeds)

    With Xtra Go Large here....however, I am getting a randomized speed, mostly using P2P. Ranges from 5kBps-102kBps. 102kBps is pretty rare, though. Still manage to suck in 50GB a month lol. (Hey, don't look at me - I'm only 16 and I only download about 2gigs worth of movies/Lost - it's my free-loading 22 year old brother who downloads all his anime, games, hentai, and bukkake porn to his heart's desire.)

    haha, nice one buddy.

    Go Large is only good if you decide to leave your PC on downloading for basically 15/7. That's what my brother does, leave it on overnight, and leave it on during the day, unless I intervene sometimes.

    Well, I get a widely varied speeds using P2P....most of the time, however, I get between 5-25kBps about 60% of the time. Yes, the speed fluctuates. Sometimes it may stay steady between 10-20kBps.

    30% of the time, I'll be stuck at between 5-12kBps. The remaining 10% is when I get between 40-102kBps. Very rare will I get anything above 60kBps though.

    BTW, I should be able to get up to 320kBps. My record breaker!
    Meh....
