Typical residential offerings now usually have a maximum of 6.0 Mbps. Keep in mind that you will not normally see 6.0 megabits in a speed test ... due to overhead. However, one of our members reports some enviable residential speeds in Korea: (Aug '08)
"I just came from Korea and I had 1Gbps download AND UPLOAD VDSL residential service for about $47 a month. You can get 2Mbps/512Kbps in Korea for $2 a month if you pay a $10 installation fee for the initial service. It is common to find 100/100Mbps in Seoul with usenet, 7 eMail accounts with attachments up to 1GB, and dedicated webpages for about $28 for month to month with no contract. On Korea's national Internet site, I see that there is residential service available for 20Gbps, but I never saw any advertisements for that and I doubt that service that fast would be available outside the capital."
TDS offers a 15 meg pipe in Perry Michigan. It's 40 miles from any major city. We ordered the 15 meg line and they hooked it up at 18500 K.
I have 18.5 mbps down and 1mbps up from GWI in Biddeford where I live and it's really fast for 449.95/mo....no contract!!
