wierd, second speed test starts for mine it jumps to 4500 then makes its way to 4900 quite fast.

You should check your frequency and signal by calling them .. if its not anywhere near what its supposed to be I believe they'll come out and try adjusting it.. thats what they did for mine when setting it up .. the worker said the signel strength isn't good, and he went back up and un did the cable and re did it some where else on the pole..

There are still more people using dial-up than you'd think.

Its the only thing I don't like about were i'm at right now.
Same exact situation here. I thought being in North America, I'd actually have broadband but nope, nothing reaches my street. Every other street in the town is covered but I live a little out of it and have access to absolutely nothing. No cable TV either. Satellite TV is okay but satellite internet is like $200+ per month for 2mbps ($50-$60 just for 512kbps) and the only company I know of has a "fair usage" limit of like 27MB per... I can't remember if it's hour or day.

Well... considering the nearest wireless connection is probably a few miles away, that wouldn't be possible under normal circumstances. If you're willing to secretly build me a wireless card bigger than a satellite dish, feel free to do so and mail it to me ASAP.

I played World of Warcraft, Maplestory and Guild Wars lag-free for a few months. Runescape worked fine, too. Obviously first person shooters and other more bandwidth-intensive games would probably not function as well without lag - I haven't tried them though.
