As Broadand Speeds increase one has no way of knowing if one's old modem is acting as a drag on performance. Upgrading with a new modem would seem worthwhile if it was designed for only the original USB 1.0 specification. I already had a modem when I signed up for PlusNet so am not using one supplied by them.Does anybody have thoughts on this?

The USB1.0 Specification should not cause any problems (In theory) to 8Mbps 448kbps adsl as USB 1.0 should be capable of up to 11Mbps but as I say in theory, in practice it can be lower, personally if I had an old USB modem and was upgrading because it was suspected of causing speed issues I would pick up an ethernet modem/router preferably ADSL2+ ready and capable of 100Mbps on the ethernet side, I have seen a weird one with a 10Mbps switch built into a unit with a ADSL2+ compatable modem which for obvious reasons is rarther stupid.
