Default Re: Omfg Dial Up!! Ahh!!

I have dialup, and i can't get hi speed because I don't live close enough to a city to get it. The way it is now is 26kbps shared between 3 computers so when everyone's on it it goes soooooo slow. when everyone's on the internet I think I get about 10kbps if i'm lucky.

Having broadband is like having cable TV. It's a common thing nowadays. Funny thing with my cable modem. Everytime I move it, it disconnects. Stupid cheap RCA Comcast cable modem....

Yeah, I had dial up for 2 years before my mom finally got tired of waiting for me to disconnect to call someone so we got dsl. Man... those were the days... I would be able to walk away and get a bite to eat or even wash a couple of loads of laundry for a 25mb powerpoint for school to download... lol...

I had dial up forever. And almost had to pay for my family to get dsl. I hate it (dial up.) A bunch of my friends still have it and it's lame because I can't send them all this cool stuff that I find (because it'd take about a month to load)

Yea. I downloaded two files tonight. A driver for a MP3 player 2MB a unlitly to install the driver 9 MBs took 30 mins. On my old connection 5 mins. I mean really I can't wait till I get highspeed. You could always get satlie. I'm sure if you searched you'd find a ISP that had like a satliel that covered the entire glode.
