    Please post your speeds, for some reason, there may be a speed issue here.

    Average 12KB/s from London UK on a 512kbs cable line. Thats pretty slow, I normally get connections upwards from 60KB/s to 100KB/s all around thw world.

    I can't download anything due to software restrictions at the 9-5, but the page took about 15 seconds to load, and i'm on a t3. Might be something to look at.

    Actually with web pages I don't really notice the difference in speed between 512 and 1024. However for downloads/uploads the upgrade is well worth it

    No, they just make you keep your existing 12 month contract, not a new or extended one. However they do make you keep the 1Mbit service for 2 months, then you have the option to downgrade to 512kbps again.
