Default Re: What internet connection do YOU have?

Did I say 20? I meant 2.0 and 2.5 MBPS. My cable company says that I am alone on my coaxial, but I don't belive them. Where I used to live we got 11 MBPS on the same service.

A coaxial is the "cable". It is what runs to many houses, and you just tap off of it.

I got DSL, "1 mbps broadband" that works at a pathetic 850 kbps download. The service is rubbish but hey, it's faster than my old dial-up.
