in reply to My home internet connection is

Call me a heretic, but I still haven't ever really experienced the *need* for anything faster than the 56K modem I use. The only possible reason could be MP3 files or perhaps a new kernel, but those are rare events. Even MP3's don't take that long. I mostly use the connection for email (no problem), web browsing (no problem, I have J/JS turned off anyway), and ssh to various boxes (no problem, even though they are geographically spaced far apart). Yes, faster would be better, but I have yet to find a burning need that would justify the cost and the hassle (and loss of privacy) that a faster connection would entail. Okay, my VNC sessions refresh really really slow, but I really just stick to ports 22, 25, and 80 for day to day use.
