Easy enough to set up, yes - but for both Hoary and Breezy I needed to
resort again to the old faithful pppconfig.
The graphical config produced download speeds of around *4 MB/hour* (no,
that isn't an error on my part). Switching to pppconfig immediately
brought the speed back up to 16 -18 MB/hour.
Looking pretty and being friendly isn't quite enough...
I'm on ADSL now, so it isn't an issue for me , but it sure is for people on
dialup. Perhaps this has been fixed in Dapper, I wouldn't know now, since I
got DSL before upgrading.
