I now know that this is not a debian or linux problem. I booted Win98SE and
conducted "official" Sprint speed tests...
-- Starting download test... Done!
-- Starting upload test... Done!
Testing complete! Your results are:
- Download speed: 201.000 KBits/sec ( 4 times faster than a 56k modem )
- Upload speed: 227.000 KBits/sec ( 7 times faster than a 56k modem )
I now have to fight my way through crap tech support.
