Yea it is great. I remember dialup. KSHHHHH WSHHHHH REEEEEEEEEEE KSHHHHHHHHHHHHH. I kind of miss that noce though.....

Cable is better than DSL in most cases because the further your house is from the DSL "box" the slower it is. Unlike cable which is the same speed. I think it gets slower when more people in your neighborhood have it.

I don't think about cable anymore. I guess that I just take it for granted.
