Me sooo happy :D... new throughput speed with my SBC DSL. For only $45.00 a month... yeah yeah yeah, 1 year contract. But it's $5.00 cheaper than my original DSL connection (SBC). Oh, it peaks at 3 Mbps.

Just want to speak of it.


*now the wankers with faster connections start to post* :p

Well, you asked for it.

And before anyone asks, no...there's no photoshop, caching, or any kind of "cheating" involved.
Is that the reason why you have a fiber optic cable running from a hole in the street to your house? :p

wow. i get 80 KB/sec down and 25 KB/ sec up for about that.. makes me sad. and i also use SBC

You should call them and ask about the "pro package" ($39.99/month). Seems they are tryin ta get new DSL customers and have a deal goin on... 1 year contract though.

I called and asked about it and they said if you are an existing DSL customer you can get it for $45.00 a month (1 year contract).

1.5-3.0Mbps(down)... 384Kbps(up)... 1 Dynamic (IP address).

Check it out --->SBC DSL specials

You yanks are just too lucky sometimes. Over here in behind the times UK all I can get is a 1MB connection and it costs me £34 a month. I think I could probibly get a 3mb connection but it would probibly cost hundreds of pounds and probibly wouldn't be very reliable. Damn expencive compaired to what you lot get for your money. I think it's time I tried to emigrate.

Heh heh... Well the 3MB is actually about $100.00 US/month but with the special it's way cheaper. But you're locked into it for 1 year.

My original connection was the 384Kbps-1.5Mbps package. I was getting constant 1.2-1.3MB connections. But then I'm like only 8-9 blocks away from their switching office. :D Soooo, it's a nice connection. I started out at $30.00 US/Month. then when the year ended it jumped up a bit (just a few bucks), then their rates changed and it went up to $49.00 US/month.

Hehe, that speed test is from my dorm room, so technically it is my "home" at the moment.

At home, however, I have pretty much the same speeds that you mentioned in your first post. It caps at 3.0mbit.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
