who told you that your connection is being used by someone else?

of course your broadband connection is being used by "someone else", normally between 20-50 people

Go down to the section "O.K. - I want broadband - do I go for cable or ADSL?" and read paragraph 5.

As you can see, cable users don't suffer from contention ratio's.

Credit for the above link should go to VoG™, he provided it for me on a earlier thread.
