    Dude, I just got a new cable connection here at school, it's so freakin fast. I was on dial-up at home running at 26.4. The cool thing is, it's faster than the university's connection. Sorry, I'm excited about this one. Considering I'm only paying like 10 bucks a month for it. We're sharing it 3 other people

    it's comcast/att (whoever owns it nowadays, i'm tired of keeping track) cable, bastid... we pay $40/mo but that's only if you have their cable tv service, too... otherwise it's like $50 or sum'm.

    yeah shoulin, forgot about our new, improved upload. i didn't really count it cuz i guess i'm assuming it's just a phase. i got so used to 128 that this 256 just seems to good to be true. }:D

    I started out in May with Cable, speeds were 3000kb/s down, 360 up. Since then my ISP(Rogers/ATT) has cut my speeds in half, along with almost everyone else, to save in costs. Also there are rumours going around that they will be implementing usage caps, like 5G/mnth in bandwidth usage. Anything over that, you get charged extra.

    Just got Mediacom cable access after a year of 48kbit dialup, it's a dream.
