he also said something strange.  out of desperation, i asked "what
happens when you reach maximum bandwidth" expecting to hear "nothing.
it just won't push data any faster".  instead he said "the modem will
drop the connection".

i wasn't expecting to hear that at all (and i don't believe it).  but i
played along and asked "does that mean the line can drop if someone
flood pings you" and he said yes.

again, i don't believe this, but i figured i'd pass it along.
