    If you don't mind me asking, how much do you pay for your internet service?

    I was with Earthlink (up until today) and I was paying $44.95/month. That's a little too much to be paying for the internet, for me at least. I switched to RoadRunner Lite today. It's not as fast as what I had with Earthlink, but for 6 months it's only $19.95, after that for another 6 months it's $24.95, then after that until you decide to get rid of them it's $29.95, still a heck of a lot less than Earthlink.

    I'm glad I switched and it's really not that much slower.

    Do you guys think $44.95 is too expensive for cable internet, or am I just nuts?
    Great Googly Moogly!

    It depends on the level of DSL your getting. Here DSL lite is around 25 bucks. But thats just barely faster than Dialup and I am not having that. My phone and DSL combined is around 90 bucks a month, but I am at extreme 3 MB per second. They have a 6 MB per second now woo hoo, but I am happy at the momment.
    256 kbps --24.95
    1.5 mbps--32.95
    3mbps--37.95
    6mbps--46.95

    Those are the rates for bellsouth in my area.

    I pay $26.27/mo for DSL pro.. its twice as fast as standard DSL (min 3mb/s max 10mb/s [DL]). My DSL is ultra-reliable. If cable internet is anything like I remember cable tv being like, I will happily sacrifice the faster cable speeds for DSL.

    I cannot stand DSL. I've never witnessed one that is decently fast. I have broadband through my cable company. I have cable (digital with high definition) and my broadband for like 90 bucks a month. My speeds are 6Mbps down and 384Kbps up. These are the speeds they rate it at... And I'm usually right at that. Durring peak usage i can see drops down into the low 5mps range.. once or twice i saw it in the 4s.

    I've got no idea what I have, except it's fast and free. I love unsecured wireless networks.

    LOL I have the wireless portion of my wireless hub turned off for just that reason. Theives like you Mokele! LMAO Just messing with ya. I would if I could, but I don;t like people mooching off my speed though so untill I can have time to secure the wirelss portion its turned off since I don;t have anything wireless yet. I just got it because it is also a wired router too.

    Andrew where I am at my DSL is more reliable than cable was. I had cable first, and was always having problems with it. So I ditched it when I ditched cable, and went with DSL since I still have a phoneline and can;t get it free yet.


    VFT guy that is some Killer DSL. We just got 6 meg service in my area, and that is the max is 6 just like my max is 3 since I have 3 meg service. I don;t normaly pull those speeds, but its faster than dialup! God forbid I have to use dialup for any extended period of time. I would go NUTS. 10 MBS is SMOKIN and for only 26 a month thats a great deal! I have to say nothing like that here yet. Prices vary from area to area.
