    So was my cable modem- I hate it when that happens!:mad:

    Anyway- the first thing I see when I come back is Mac Daddy's avatar- Nice man! How did you manage that huge thing? It's sweet.

    I like my cable when it works- It seems like every onther day it's got some problem or another. It's really fast when its on though.

    anyway, are the cables entitled to "unlimited download"?? and how much do you pay for it??

    Yup- no caps on the amount I can download- It's about 50 dollars a month- It's 100dollars a month for 2 Digital cable boxes and Cable modem service- it comes in a package, the first three months the cable modem turns out to be about 20 dollars a month, then it goes back to normal price. It's a pretty good deal for the speedI get- Sometimes it will be up around 9,000kb/s down- it's always only 133kb/s up- which sux. Ussually I'm around 3,000 to 4,000 download speed though- It's really fast. Sometimes I get about 1MegaByte a second- those days are great- Nothing like a 200MB game demo in 5 minutes or less!

    ? Why do you say that? Look on broadbandreports.com - I'm not the only one on Adelphia Powerlink that has seen those speeds, If thats what you are "wtf'ing" about. I dunno- maybe that's not what you meant, uhh, anyway-

    maybe cause i'm a dinosaur, the fastest here that we can get is ADSL-384kbps, that's why....................*sad:tears: :sigh: :tears: :sigh: :tears: :sigh: :tears: :sigh: :tears: :sigh:

    and on a side note, our 56K is even more expensive than that ADSL..........they charge them by hourly...

    Well, at least you have that- it's a whole lot better than dial-up- that's for sure! And your upload is more than three times faster than mine will ever be! Can you play on-line games with a good ping? That's all I really got cable for anyway- but I couldn't imagine trying to even update windows after an install with dial-up- it would take a month! Forget about game demos to- I remember letting my computer download demos for days on dial-up. I hope never again, that was horrible.

    I guess I thought you had this ADSL- which is faster upload than mine- My download is way faster, but not upload.
