ATHM's modem working at about 500 bps now - what speed (sarcasm) - maybe if the stock price were lower the company would work a bit harder at providing a system that delivers the hi-speed access they purport the cable modem to have (up to 100 x faster than phone line - phooey - cable modem slower than phine line dial-in)
thx, nurk. this is a case where several sites i'm trying to access are slow - so it's very likely the modem. Also, the caching of the server at the cable modem hub might be busy since even for pages already recent;y loaded it's taking a while to do re-loads
finally cable modems are true shared bandwidth, so maybe more and more people are using it and/or signed up for the service and will be using it
