That's the download speed I was getting off Microsoft.com just now.

I just upgraded to Rogers High Speed Internet Extreme (by purchasing the fancy modem, the regular fees are the same), and it's freaking fast. I was expecting to not notice any difference at all, but I've been proven wrong.

The file I was downloading was the new Microsoft AntiSpyware tool. It comes highly recommended. I was using Ad-Aware 3 years ago, back when no one knew about it, and it's been a pretty good tool. But Microsoft's one picked up more stuff, was more intuitive as to what to do with it, and just has a better feel overall.

Microsoft AntiSpyware = A+
Rogers High Speed Extreme = A++
