According to this story at Network World, interference from AM stations can slash high-speed bandwidth by 40% on approximately 15% of ADSL connections. While AM interferes with download speeds, it does not affect upload speeds. AM frequency only affects ADSL and its subsets (not SDSL), including rate adaptive DSL and G.lite. "
