    Yes I think you would.

    You`d get faster downloads for a start, plus better video streaming etc.

    I`m on a 2Mb cable connection, and average about 245KBps on a download.

    Check with your isp for the advertised download/upload speeds.

    Regards Howard :grinthumb

    Please, please, please try to tell the difference between b and B. If you don't then you confuse people and make yourself look like an ***** too.

    Hello Nodsu.

    I trust that meets with your approval, Or have I still got it wrong.

    If I have then maybe you could explain it to me.

    Regards Howard :p

    Looks better now although one should also use K instead of k when talking about bytes.. :)

    Using the figures from that test, you are pretty close to the top performance of a 1MB line.
    I just changed to a wireless 1MB connection from Clearwire and I get almost 2MB out of them:
    Download = 1.91 Mbps, upload = 200 kbps

    So, depending on your ISP, you may well see a good increase, going to 2MB
