Certain programs are asking me what speed my broadband connection is. Have only just installed broadband and it is Wanandoo 10 x faster than dial-up. My connection icon status "Connected at 1,152,000 bps" Is that the same as 152 k line speed ????

No, it's not. You have (and so do we!) '1Mb/s'. M=million, so thats 1,000,000 bits per second. (Actually, due to the way 'bits' work, it is 1,152,000bps, but it's just called 1Mb/s).
