Maybe, but not to the internet on an  1.5Mb/s connection. Your aDSL line 
is only good for at most 1.5M and that's not guaranteed to happen all 
the time. There are a lot of things that go on to throttle that. At 
home I can connect between computers at 100 Mb/s, so what. I can't 
connect to the internet at faster than what's capable of being supplied 
by the ISP.
