I was thinking the other day.  I have an 8Mb/s ADSL connection with a 30GB data cap.

If I had a connection that ran full throttle for a month and got 30GB my connection would be roughly effectively a data rate of 93Kb/s.

It's a pity we can't get ISPs to advertise the effective data rate of their services.
