I spent one month short of 11 years on dial up, I remember thinking a 14.4kb connect speed was blazing fast!

Until the later part of July, I was connecting at less than 56K.

Guy shows up and laughs...There ain't no cable here.

Unreal.



If Comcast is your provider down in LCR, color me totally unsurprised.

Comcast has just about the shittiest customer service of any business on the planet.  I dread takling to those putzes over the phone when SHTF with internet / TV.  Talk about a bunch of condescending bunch of pricks.

At least their field techs are reasonably compitent.

Why don't you try wireless/satellite internet.  It's more expensive than cable and DSL obviously but if it's all you can get, you might try it.

Adelphia High-Speed Internet 888-683-1000

www.affordablesatellites.biz

www.passwording.com

www.abbacomm.net

Those places advertise high speed wireless internet.

DSL modem is on its way to my house!

So they asked me which speed I wanted....? (I think they meant which speed I was willing to pay for....?).

Any advice on this?

256K was 30$ per month, 728K for $40, and 1.5MB for $50. I went with the 728k, with the option to change at anytime..... and the first 6 months is $10 cheaper.... no install or activation fees. (CenturyTel)

Gotta be better than the screaming 31.2K I've been running at for the past 7 years.... ($20 per month).

I don't really know what the numbers will actually look like, but I'm interested to hear any experiences or opinions anyone has had with them.



Get the 1.5Mb I wish I still could.

My wife is not equiped with a penis, so a male enhancement would do her no good.
