Accross the lake, lol, how did you do that? Buy a mile of Cat5 cable, lol. No, noone near me has high speed, my grandpa does, but he lives 3 miles farthur out of town. He gets t6broadband, and we could get that too if it wasnt for John Hues. There is a guy that owned the tallest piece of property in mchenry county that lives near me, but apparently john hues, director of home alone, and very rich, lol, was jealous. So he made is ski hill taller, and that ski hill blocks the line of site to the nearest tower. Rich, people, ruining our lives, lol.

Does anyone know how fast the cingular 4g service is supposed to be? And if I signed up for the current 3g service, would I be able to upgrade do you think?

Ok, my dad has the sprint card, and when he is home from work I can use it. I just tested the speeds. At one spot I can get around 700kbs down, and the same up. Thats pretty good upload speeds isnt it? ATTs 6mb connection has 784kbs upload, so I wouldnt have much slower with this sprint card right?

If it is wireless, and the party who has the internet doesn't agree to you using their Internet, that is actually a misdemeanor, considered "Theft of Services". People get arrested for stuff like that. I read once of a guy sitting outside of a Starbucks in his car on his laptop using Starbucks Internet, and he was arrested. He was not a paying customer of Starbucks, so he was "stealing" their Internet.

I normally connect at around 46.6KB/S in XP and 42.6KB/S in Vista. I don't know why I connect slower in vista kinda strange.

I was actually looking at satallite internet again tonight after I bought Lost Planet only to find out I need high speed for it.

Just curious is verizon wireless broadband any good? I saw I could get a PC card for it not sure if i've got service or not but maybe worth a call. I still have a hard time dropping $300 on a dish then paying $80 a month for 1.0mb/s down and 200kb/s up.

I've heard satellite internet is horribly slow and has awful ping. I think it's overpriced and not worth the money.
I hate dialup, I had it for a few years through AOL and it was slow and I had no patience for it. I think out of all the internet connections I've had, DSL is my favorite because the speed is the most consistent. I get 5mpbs down and I get around 400kbps up.
