    Question Re: Cable Modem speeds

    So, I'm downloading the "Half-Life 2" demo this evening and it just comes screaming onto my machine at mach-speed. Check this screenshot out:

    449KB/sec?!? Isn't that 3592Kbps? Is that even possible with a cable modem?

    Somebody shed some light please!

    That speed is about normal for most cable internet providers these days.
