I drive a truck over-the-road.

I still have dialup at home.

When I am on the road I use high-speed wifi hotspots. The speed varies, but when it works well, it is comparable to DSL.

dial-up at home, 3 DS-3 lines at work with dual gigabit connections coming.

I have cable at home and DSL in my office.

I believe that the DSL is faster, but I use a desktop at work and a laptop at home. That my affect my perception. I'm not smart enough to know for sure.

I have both cable and DSL at home. The cable is about 3x faster than DSL. I only notice the difference on big downloads. For small downloads and plain surfing it is about the same, due to the latency on the cable.

You seriously need to upgrade... anyone that would suffer to this day on dialup most likely hasnt experienced the glory that is broadband.

3mb DSL
Link Posted: 10/5/2005 1:51:29 AM EDT
Had Speakeasy DSL for 3+ years (1.5mb down) until I sold my house.

Now using Verizon Wireless Broadband/National Access on my PowerBook as I'm roaming.

Before Speakeasy it was 56k dialup (and before that 28.8k dialup - first ISP for Internet connection was back in 94).

Started with 300 baud on a Vic20 for CompuServe and later 14.4k on a 286 for Prodigy and later, <eek!> AOL.

You know, the only advantage is that with dialup, everytime you restart your connection you get a new IP.

Call me paranoid.

No not everytime. Theres only so many IP's your ISP has allocated for dial-up. You will see the same ones over and over.

I have wireless . Out here in the country they shoot a signal from grain elevator to grain elevator. Then you can pick it up with an antenna. 5i2 mb so far I really like it.

Well, ok. But that is still more than one. I just get kinda wierded out thinking that there is one single number that could identify me on the internet.

This is coming from the same guy that said recently in a post, right here on ARFCOM:

"...99% of people don't give 2 shits what you do."

...and...

"This doesn't pass the 'who cares?' test. Who cares if someone knows you buy Yoplait or Dannon every week?"

Sigh. Oh well, we all have our quirks.

Dialup at home, which i hardly ever use, and DSL at work and at the FD.
Link Posted: 10/5/2005 2:20:02 AM EDT
We have Roadrunner. The wife went so far as to say last year that she wouldn't move to a location she would be stuck with dial-up ( I was looking at a couple of hundred acres in a very rural area at the time).

Tried cable at a friends house. Made the switch the next day.
Link Posted: 10/5/2005 3:14:54 AM EDT
Yep. Two Motorolla wireless backhaul anteannas back to the office (I work for an internet service provider).

I average around 21-25 megabit.
Link Posted: 10/5/2005 3:56:32 AM EDT
Dial up...usually about 18.5 kbs ...21 on a good day and as low as 9.6 on rainy days. The phone lines are early 50's out where we are. They said by the end of 2007 our our scheduled to be replaced.

There is high speed cable about 7000' up the road, they said they could hook it up, but I would have to pay per foot for every foot past 1 mile (so about 2000 feet to the Property and another 700' to the house). It isn't worth it. All that ever happens at home is my wife check's her e-mail.

I am usually dicking with the car or tractor or something like that and if none of that I am farting around on the Ham bands.

Time Warner Roadrunner. I am never going back to dial-up.

I was fine with dial-up and tried to stick with it, but everything on the web is made for high speed now so dial-up just isn't cutting it anymore. I ordered DSLa few weeks ago, but haven't been home to see if it's on yet.
Link Posted: 10/5/2005 4:50:51 AM EDT
I used to have Roadrunner cable, but they had outages all the time which interrupted post counts. Now I have DSL from a company called Oplink and it's faster and more reliable in actual use even though cable is "supposed" to be faster.

Where I'm at I have 56k dialup. (If I'm lucky! ) I can't get DSL or cable, and I don't have a clear view of the southern sky. Damn, it sucks to be me.

I switched from dial-up to Verizon DSL about a month ago - although my dial-up connection was pretty good for what it was, the DSL is much better...

When I first moved into the house I am currently in I had dialup. Because of the old phone lines in the area, the fastest I had ever was able to connect was a blistering 13k. It made web work a total [ain.

Went to cable almost 2 years ago and I will never go back.

I recently painted my modem MARPAT, added a VFG, Surefire tac light, and a quad rail free float tube.

I'd say that it's pretty high speed now!
Link Posted: 10/5/2005 7:04:27 AM EDT
When we were looking to buy a house recently, that was a make-or-break item. If high-speed Internet wasn't available in that area, the house was no good.
