Get Optimum online while you wait. About $50 a month, advertised speed is 10 mbps and actual is around 95.

prophetmike has it. I first learned about it myself back in this thread. Unfortunately it's not available in my area.

Check out their website if you're interested in their availability.

Edit: Just checked. It's only available in the US, so if you really are in Australia then you can't get it.

But the fastest internet connection possible is to have your own server. intrepid has access to a gov't server at work. And this is the government we're talking about, and they need to have everything working just their way, so you can probably figure out it's really really fast. Except he doesn't have access to flash because they think it will take them away from their work. Yeah, and like downloading 20 gigs of online movies isn't going to do that!

Hrm, T3-level speeds at home, what exactly would be the point. Wouldnt say a 5/1 cable connection satiate most needs for fast downloads? Short of streaming movies I cant see the need for something with the capabilits of VDSL. Also one should bear in mind the advertised speed and the actual speed differ greatly. My current DSL package is marketed as 384/128k but in reality its 40kb/s downstream and about 15kb/s upstream, far far less than the adverstised speed, so you wouldnt get a litteral 52mb down but rather in the ballpark of 5.5mb/s downstream provided you were connected to someone with a massive upstream ablility like a T3 or Optical Carrier.

I'll try to break it down with less geeky terms. You have a Advertised speed, such as 52Mb/s (Megabits/second) and a true speed you have due to all kinds of technical conditions such as quality of the phone line or wires in the lines, etc. My home DSL connection is advertised as being capable of 384Kb/s (Kilobits/second) but after giving it some speed tests it actually downloads at about 40Kb/s. Thats about 1/10th the advertised speed. Basically its a rule of thumb that you never get the advertised speed but about 1/10th the speed, so the 52Mb/s VDSL will actually be able to download at about 5.5Mb/s; alot less than its advertised speed. It might seem like a ripoff, but its a purely technical issue that most high-speed customers dont know or care about, but probably should before being wooed by promises of amazingly fast speeds.

Hope I was able to make it a bit easier to understand.
