    Good question. Unfortunately, the phone connects to the computer at a
    fairly high speed (220kbps or something like that?) and that's what
    shows up on the popup when you make the connection, but that has no
    bearing at all on how fast your internet connection is. I've heard it
    is roughly the same as a 56K modem, give or take a little.

    Something I can't resist commenting on. I know when I got my phone over a
    year ago, I was told that it (the America's Choice plan) included the
    Internet access on Minutes of Use basis - it seemed too good to believe,
    but my tests worked fine then and again recently. However, I went with my
    daughter yesterday when she renewed her contract, and went up from the $35
    plan I still have, to the current $39 plan. I asked the salesman about her
    having Internet access and he said no. When I told him they told me that I
    did, and that perhaps it was because I have a commercial account, he said
    no. So, I guess the debate about the access goes on!
