Yes, but both Teksavvy and I know that I'm on a line that's been badly 
provisioned by Bell.  I'm getting 3Mbps down / 800kbps up on a line that 
should be 5Mbps down / 800kbps up.  Teksavvy says that requesting Bell 
to fix this profile may just result in something like 5Mbps down / 
500kbps up, and I believe them.  Mostly I find 3 Mbps down fast enough, 
but 800kbps up is already too slow.  Anyway, the persistent connection 
(always on) is more valuable to me than raw speed. And since I'm using 
MLPPP I've managed to evade Bell's throttling, so I'm really getting 3 
Mbps, not whatever Bell's throttled throughput is.
