      I have subscribed to the 1Mbps bundle option per month. what numbers do i expect to see in the ADSL CONNECTION STATUS of the live box for Downstream and Upstream. Currently I have 244 Kb (Intlv[LP0]) for downstream and 124 Kb (Intlv[LP0]) for upstream. I am in Mombasa, Kenya.

      Yes, I agree with you, sometimes their connections speeds are very slow. Let us hope they will improve their services.
