I'm getting 150 KBps (kilobytes), which mean 150x8=1200kbps (kilobits), which
matches what's advertised (minus various headers, etc.)

the experience of listening to a 128kbps stream from a radio broacasted from
france is already very good. But seeing that it only uses a small part of my
bandwidth makes me feel even better :)

To reply to Shimpei, IP address on Internet side is dynamic. I don't know how
often it will change but I suspect not too much.
Also, since the adsl router uses NAT, I don't know how will it behave with
incoming connections (haven't tried).
