Yup I will, I am certainly enjoying my shiney 4Mbps cable :)
In addition to the hurt this must cause I will point out that I am only paying for the 2Mbps service has my cable provider (Blueyonder) has upgraded the line twice this for all customers.

An extra 1Mbps free in May and an extra 1Mbps free this month as a christmas present :)

I love it!

I'm sure you do! The 256K connection I had at my old place was adequate but going back to dial-up speed feels like working with my arm in plaster. I thought a major suburban area would have DSL support. It's cheap to get where it's available but until the phone company (Telstra, the people Australians love to hate) upgrades the exchange I'm screwed.

I can convert to ISDN, which has a startup cost but is thereafter the same as normal but that would only double the speed which hardly seems worth the effort or expense.
