    Disguy: I didn't think about satellite connection, but I'll have to remember to look into that. Interestingly, SBC is our land line service provider. I remember while living in Moreno Valley for school, Verizon was the carrier and didn't have DSL service out there. Seems as though I'm living in obscure places for these folks! Anyhow... still searching. It's tough to be at work with a fast connection and go home to a snail's pace.

      I have Comcast as well and my computer sucks!! It's 5 years old .

      Hopefully this I can buy a new one.

        I also have comcast. It could be faster though. My computer is really vamped up and sometimes it takes time on mine to load pages and freeses on website like SaveDisney.com for some wierd reason. Does anyone else have this problem using FireFox on a Windows XP computer looking at the SaveDisney site?

          I have been using the best $6 per month isp, but they are going out of business... I will have DSL by friday, it took the local phone co 3 days to hookup, they just test the line and thats about it...

          as for satelite VERY expensive, 79 per month and 300 plus for the equipment, or more to "rent" the equipment...

          I wanted to get cable since cheaper and faster, but i live in the sticks, only 10 homes in the hood....

          gonna have the wireless net in the home as well...

          some towns offer free wireless internet within the area, I cant wait for that where I live...

            they are DSLing the areas with higher population first... then moving to the obscure areas.. in about 5 years most of the country should be up to DSL/Cable modem speeds....

              I have Roadrunner cable internet through Time Warner Cable.

              I have at work a shared T1 with a 4mb/sec throughput.

              I'm never going back to dialup, I don't care if I can't eat!

                Charter communications cable. At first it was a little troublesome... but haven't had any complaints with it for quite some time now!

                  Comcast for me too. It's been good to me.

                  And just to start a little argument let me say....cable owns dsl and always will.

                    Five years?! Not fast enough for me!! By that time, my brand new computer will be massively archaic! :lol:

                      I bet it'd be longer than that. There are people that are just now getting dial-up.

                        I was suprised they have DSL where I live, 5 miles from a small town that has a co-op phone company... only 10 homes in the neighborhood, but they had it.,...

                        suprisingly no cable internet....

                        I liiked into satelite, but it is VERY expensive $80 per month and the equipment is 400 AND UP...

                          wireless

                          and no not wireless like wireless networking wireless like wireless broadband (this always confuses people)

                          wireless networking is slow range and uses radio frequencies and other such things

                          wireless broadband requires a microwave dish to be setup ontop of my house, it's different then sattilite though because the broadcasters are on the ground giving me much faster speed as well as allowing me to send data back (aka really fast upload speeds as well *sattlite technicaly can't upload so your sending data out through a phone line or another such communication device making your upload speed a joke*)
