    you're going to be capped by your ISP so the max a cable line / cable modem can reach doesn't matter. It's well over what your ISP will allow so I would worry more about the speed your ISP gives you then anything else.

    Cable lines vary depending on the type. I know they've come out with really high end coaxial cable that can reach 1.5Gb/s which sounds insane (because it is). I don't know what type of cable is standard for households because i'm no cable expter, but the limits of it are really high in comparison to the 1.5 - 5Mb/s your isp will give you.

    As far as modems go that also varies, there's so many different kinds it's hard to say what the max is because they are all a little different. my bung smells like poo. :)

    3Mb/s down, 512Kb/s up for $50. I can't stand cable TV, so I get shafted.
