6/1 Mbps?

Just looking for clarification on this:

"The Peak Speed of NBN Satellite Services vary depending on your location in Australia, your modem's signal strength and satellite network congestion, and could be as high as 6/1 Mbps"

I'm not sure what " 6/1 Mbps" is supposed to mean (maybe I havent had enough coffee yet)... anyone know? Maybe as high as 6 Mbps?

In a few weeks I'll be changing satellite providers, thanks to the NBN. Going from a 3GB quota to 500GB, and full satellite speed. Gonna be one hell of a difference, on my exisiting satellite connection I've yet to see even 256K after 3 years (supposed to be 512K).

I may or may not be able to see any replies later on today, as I may not even be able to connect to this or any other server after about

8AM, so forgive any lack of response :\

Ahh... yep, that's probably it. Thanks. My NBN Satellite Service is booked for installation on 13 Feb, it'll sure beat the 11kbps I get from my so-called 512k satellite service of the past 3 years.

Thanks for that. For the past month my max. speed on my existing satellite connection has been around 11kbps, which means a lot of sites and pages won't load at all. So I tend to pick and choose very carefully what I do on here for the time being... :\

I have a 'tentative' installation booking for Feb. 13. Hopefully they'll stick to that date, but based on when the same company installed my existing connection, they'll probably keep postponing it until they have a couple of other jobs in the area.
