    If it's higher education, it's more than likely connected to JANET.

    Probably a frame relay or fibre connection through the telco to a high speed network/ISP.

    You can basically get a connection any speed anywhere as long as you have the dollars to pay for it.

    The townhall, where my school is near has a t1 connaction. This is then split between about schools around town. So it comes out very slow.

    My school had a 64kbit (128kbit when they felt like activating both channels) ISDN connection being shared among 3 computer labs and all the staff computers.

    Believe me, you haven't felt slow until you've used that during lunch time when everybody is using the connection

    Don't worry, I'm reaping the benefits now that I'm at University which has the budget for a faster connection.

    For some reason I seem to get around 2000kbytes/s when it's busy

    My school (high school that is) has a Dual T-1 Lines. Too bad all the computers suck too much that it even matters. For example we have like 700MHZ Gateway computers, which isn't bad. However they are so slow that multi-tasking is near impossible. I've offered to be like a "lab assistant" or something, but nope instead they go with the morons that no absolutely nothing about computers.
