Default byebye dialdown

I just wanted to tell you guys that we finally got broadband! No more stupid dialup connections for me!

I had cable from time to time over at my dad's, but I'll always be on broadband from now on! today I was looking at lots of big flash movies and downloading things I didn't even want really... just cause I could lol.

Yea ...
I used to do that when i first got broadband this year
But i had limits, only 1 gb of download
But now i have unlimited ... woot woot
I would also die if i ever switched back to dial up knowing how slow it is compared to broadband

i still haven't experienced the complete richness of DSL...even tho i have it ... you see...were i live there no supposed to give us DSL so they have to strech the line and that weakens the connection and whatnot...giveing me DSL ... but slower...owell....its still a heck of alot faster than dial up...and i can use the phone
