Ha. My parents have CenturyLink. They have to though as they live in the sticks. They have their lowest package and their speed is only 800k at best. I just stick with my 3G when I go to visit.

If my conversion is correct Sarah, you are actually slower than a 56K dial up modem that connected at full speed. 56k is half of 1Mbps and you are at 38k or 0.38Mbps.

Lol no you are way off Mike. 500kbps would be approximately half of a 1mbps connection (approx because of 1024kb=1mb NOT 1000kb=1mb), so 54k is about .05mbps
