1-some one once told me on this very forum that whether it is a 256-k,512 or 1 mb connection for that matter, the browsing speed wouldn't be very different in Pakistan!!
so is it true?
2-a thing that always bothers me is the fact that if you are downloading and browsing on these ptcl dsl connections at the same time, what you mostly get is a browsing experience which is very irritatingly slower from the 1 when you are not downloading anything which in many ways is understandable as well,but having said that, i also remember thw days when i would browse on a medioker 128 k dsl connection of my cable-wala (with at least 15 customers online at any time [browsing or downloading stuff]) and yet not getting a very slow browsing experience at least unless i too was downlaoding stuff?
so is it the contention ratio or simply just the difference b/w a home and a commercial/connection which makes browsing much better for a 128 k connection of cable-walas as compaerd to the 256 k connection of a home user or its just any abndwidth allocation technique used by them?
