Wow!! I didn't think they even had any of those activated for consumers anymore. I have been using the 360 for quite some time now and all is well with the system. Speeds seem to be going up on average lately for some reason. It might be people churning out and freeing up bandwidth and not being replaced because of the Chapter 11 situation. Is this going to be a free upgrade for you or will you have to buy the new modem? If free, I say go for it. I still have my old cards sitting around here somewhere, yanked from the Dell and just taking up space. Starband didn't even want them back.
