When your broadband connection is supposed to be say512 kbps, is this the data rate, or does it include packet headers, error-correction codes and so on? I am curious because I get a maximum throughput only 80% of 512 kbps. Before with a dialup modem, I got connections at 52 kbps initial and final speeds (I am close to telephone exchange). So I don't believe the telephone line is crud.
