My DSL link was switched from 6 Mbps to 16 Mbps downlink yesterday, and from 512 kbps to 1 Mbps uplink. Don't know why they needed 15 minutes downtime for that. At first the downlink speed was much less, around 700-800 KB/s; apparently the modems had negotiated something more agreeable an hour later.

I ordered the upgrade mainly for the uplink; it was always a pain to upload largish photo collections or other bandwidth testing material. Should feel at least a bit better now, although a factor of two is not that much. The faster downlink is sure nice, but not really necessary. I'd rather trade the 16/1 Mbps for, say, 12/5. But this is not an option with the DTAG.

But still, yay!

This is, of course, not related to IPv6 at all.
