"What is the average real-world cable modem download speed?"
I know that theoretically, it's 1.5 megabits, but in the real world I hear it's a lot slower. How fast is your cable download rate?

Since a lot of it depends on the speed of the server you're downloading from, please give me a range. A friend of mine recently told me that he gets about 150 megabytes on average. Is this common or is it unusually slow.

I'm trying to decide between a cable modem and a DSL line with a guaranteed download rate of 208k for the same price. So I would appreciate any input.

There are some tweaks you can do to speed up your connection...go to speedguide.net and look for there registry tweaks...they have executable patches as well as do it yourself registry tweaks. They make a big difference.

I have Charter @ Home and I get at least 2-4 MPS. It's a great service, and I'm really happy with the results!

I average between 2-3mbits all the time. Never see any slowdown. I upload about 75KB as well.
