Looks like you may have just been llu'd as your upload is greatter than 448.

Even with maxdsl. I can notice a big difference between webpages downloading and file downloading.

It's best to try a few test over a few mins to get a real representation of your speed as it can vary from second to second.

I have run a test only seconds apart and the results have ranged form 300kbps to 5000kbps.

The difference your experiencing is probably normal. When browsing websites, you are limited by the speed of the web server you are accessing. When using usenet, you are probably accessing a much faster server or multiple servers.

In my opinion, 8 Meg broadband is not really to improve web browsing speeds or download speeds, its to supply new services such as VOIP and Video on Demand.
