Re: HAS ISDN'S TIME COME AND GONE? from Edupage

The backbone. Perhaps. I regularly get 1 Mbps from major sites, even
overseas to this machine. For example, sun.com, major archive sites, etc.
And I've seen little time-of-day sensitivity.
Someone at the other end with a web page on an ISP -- that's a different
matter. Slow, slow, slow. I believe all ISP's are oversubscribed
in all but semi-rural areas. Anything above 9600 baud with these guys
is a waste of modem speed.
