HA! I have Optimum Online Cable.

5 MEGABITS DOWN, 936K UP.

WITH AN OPTIMIZER, 8 MEGABITS DOWN, 936K UP!

I own j00 in terms of speed.

I can run SERVERS! YES, SERVERS! I run a Teamspeak 2 server, and it never lags or anything! I have sixteen people in there, and I'm not lagging at all, or anyone else for that matter!

Sorry...I just had to brag about that.

MaxPower, you also live on Long Island, so I assume you also have this?

I love my DSL

use to cable, fucking sucked
Then you have a bad cable access provider, because all opinions aside.Docsis 1.1 is a technically superior technology to DSL/ADSL. Most ADSL customers get like 128k/384k. With Optimumonline I get 3Mbit on a bad day and as high as 8Mbit.

Some of you (or your parents) must be paying a shitload of money for your internet service...

I've got 1.5Mbit DSL from verizon. At 30 bucks a month, I think its a pretty good deal. And its actually pretty reliable too...

I'll have times where my internet will go out but 95% of the time if you just restart the router it usually comes back on. I dont know why it works, but it just does.

I have 56k, and it sucks :thumbsup:

Back when I had Windows 95, our family bought a DSL Modem and the like, to find out that it didn't work with Windows 95... anyways, by the time that we got a new computer (it wasn't worth upgrading), we had already returned it (or whatever you do with modems).

I wish I had cable (in my experience, its been faster than DSL) but I do enjoy the constant IP changes that 56k provides me with.
