it is said that comcast is upping their download and upload speeds. I think dl is around 5 Mbps now and upload might be 768?? No idea about upload.

okay, there are different speeds of dialup. theres 28k, 56k, etc. If you have 56k dialup, and ur happy withh it, keep it. You have nothing to compare it to, so of course it seems fast.

Well my earthlink DSL is awesome, it's 35 bucks a month. 3mbps down, and 356kbps up.

But Verizon... don't get Verizon... *Shakes fist*
