Hotel broadband

When I checked into the Hilton in London, Ontario, I asked if broadband internet was available in the room.  They said that both wireless and wired internet was available.  I connected with the wireless, and it works fine, but it seems a little slow.  I wanted to see if I could get a faster connection with the wired connection.

There is a box on the desk that is labeled nStreams Technology Data over Voice Access Hub.  It looks like there is something in the hotel's phone head end that multiplexes the data signal on top of the voice line.  This sound very similar to DSL.

The speed of the wired connection was not that much better.  I assume that the connection to the external network is just not that fast.
