will faster broad band improve the viewing of streaming media.

when we increased from 56k to 512 adsl streaming media was better, will this be further improved moving up to 4meg or will it stay the same at present any advice please from those already on fast b/b

depends on the source of the material. for example, if your download speed is 100Kbps, and the source only has a download speed of say 50Kbps, then, no, it won't improve the stream, as it is already running at full speed.

if the source has a higher download speed, and you upgrade, then you will get a better video stream

in theory may i add here......
