How fast is DSL? I think mine is 64k min, so 6000x64k=384Mb .. hmm, I can
transfer files currently via Gig for faster than that.
But anyway, yeah they've done a bunch of benchmarks with stuff like this.
Basically you hack the TCP protocol stack at either end and it flows faster, the
downside is you might break a whole bunch of things by doing so and you need to
change the whole worlds' tcp stacks if you want to roll this out.
