Someone with time to do the math?

If I had a 56K modem downloading 24x7 how much data would be downloaded in a month?

If the modem beats it they they should offer the service significantly less that the cost of dialup because they are then offering a lesser service.

Ok I found a calculator.
punched in 240000Mb

Single-pair HDSL (S-HDSL) 758 / 24 hours = 31.58 (This is what comcasts service is about equal to)

Which means any of the following services are faster or anything about 758K is a faster service.

Consumer DSL (CDSL)
Very high-speed DSL (VDSL)
100 Base-T (fast ethernet)
1000 Base-T

Looks like Verizon/Windstream/AT&T and going to get a lot more customers.

Comcast broadband is usually about 10Mbps. According to the bandwidth calculator on DSL reports you could potentially download 2.9TB in a 30 day period assuming you were going at full speed all day for 30 days.

640MB a day with 56Kb dialup for 24 hours

18144000 or 18GB a month

220752000 KB, or 220 GB a year.
