close!  'tis called "narrowband' . They can call it that since speeds may be dialup , but its still "always on" so they can legaly claim " broadband"  Its more commonly used as a dsl term i believe, but in this case it could be !  :haha:

Here is the definition of "broadband from answers.com:

High-speed transmission. The term is commonly used to refer to Internet access via cable modems or DSL, which is faster than dial-up. For years, "broadband" has referred to a higher-speed connection, but the actual speed threshold has varied. While T1 (1.5 Mbps) has been widely used as the threshold, others have used T3 (45 Mbps) for broadband. For example, after the turn of the century, South Korea leapfrogged the U.S. in Internet access, offering DSL up to 50 Mbps and calling their 1.5 Mbps service "light." In every case, however, it implies transmitting at higher speeds. See broadband router, T1, cable modem and DSL.

falco :)

Maybe we need "mediumband".

Ex: 56Kbps and lower = narrowband

57Kbps - ~350Kb mediumband

351k and ^ broadband.

At least for now.

works for me...but what do you call my grandma's 33.6k dialup ? :(

Valueband?
