Yeah, that's what they advertised. However, I using online tools like
those found at PC Pitstop I consistently get between 6900 and 7100
kilobytes per second download speed. Some days it is as slow as 5000
but usually higher. It might be my proximity to their central office, I
don't know. My upload speed is, however, slower than the advertised
800, though. It's usually around 650.
