    Ah the joys of Cable Internet. You'd have to be a fool to actually WANT DSL now, unless you got SDSL for the higher upload speed.

    On a side note: DAMN SON! 8 megabit = teh fast.

    Wahoo! I knew there was a reason I kept Comcast around. I hope I get teh bump up to 6mbps.

    Where's one of those lame Calvin-peeing-on-something stickers for your car, with cable peeing on DSL? :p

    Wow. I'm on Cocks... err... Cox internet down here. No Comcast or RoadRunner available. I'm still pulling 5-6 mbps though, so I'm ok. :)

    damn i wish i had Comcast(too bad they dont have service down here). in order to get faster speeds on road runner; youd have to upgrade to Premium version; which is like $85/month; but you get the 8mbps connection(normal is 4mbps i believe).

    1.5mbps of SBC is good for me. Its only 30 compared to 50+ for Charter cable thats 3mbps. Oh well. I dont download all that much and its fast enough.

    Now only if i can get $15/month deal.

    good to hear. as long as other companies boost internet speeds, Adelphia has to follow. So looks like I will get yet another upgrade. :D
