This is what has been put in place to stop dial up users from being able to either download large video files from sites like INNWorldReport or watching it's daily programing. The files sizes are 44meg to 48meg and it takes more than four hours to load it at 28.8 or 32.2 connection using dial up service.
I live in an area where dsl/cable is not available an use dial up to connect to the web and satellite is to costly cause I'm using a mac. So I'm stuck with using dial up and stuck having to go through level3 communications as most of us are here in the northwest.
At 3kps and a connection speed of say 32.2, you won't be able to do updates on your system software with the time limit imposed!
