256kBIT = around 30kBYTE.

do the maths

256/8 = 32

now in case you're wondering why i divided by 8 is cuz theres 8 bits in a byte so instead of converting kbit into bit then into byte then into kbyte i took a shortcut

But as ADSL is Burstable.. u never get full bandwidth and tend to cap out at 30k :P so pfft also when u start to hit above 20k on uploads ur download goes to pot :P

i have 2mb and when my download hit 20k i can hardly even pull 50k download...

adsl depends of distance to exchange...so some ppl dont get full upload speed, but 2mb isnt rate adaptive so ignore that

also, i can upload at 30k constant and keep pullin down 30k constant, doesnt affect me at all

and ive used other lines runnin @ 30k upload and gettin 210k down on a 2 meg line or 90k down on a 1meg line

so alot depends on exchange and isp
