    I was curious if anyone still uses dial-up. At work we have a modem pool where we can dial in and get free dial-up. Uh! No! I'm too spoiled with highspeed internet.

    Yeah Verizon FIOS is much better than Crapcast! I wish it was avalable here in Atlanta,GA & surrounding areas.

    lol Same here (especially with the new 18" antennas on my WAP), but I'm on DSL. I had RR in my apartment, and have had it several times before at other places so this is the first time I've had DSL. So far it seems faster than RR. Well, speed tests show it's slower than I was getting with RR, but large files download in less time.... :confused: Only thing I can think of is the speed is more consistent than with cable, and doesn't fluctuate up and down all the time.

    Technically, broadband is any highspeed internet connection: cable, DSL, FIOS, etc. :D

    Yes that is correct. I was thinking long ago you had just Dial-up, DSL, & (cable (which back then was known as Broadband)). Now every company; cable, DSL, FIOS, etc, are calling high speed broadband. Thanks for pointing my mistake out. I removed it from my orig post.

    The thing that uses high-speed cell service for slightly faster than dial-up speeds? :D I call it expensive and not worth it. :D
