It's true everyone, my 56k days are behind me. Got it hooked up today and i'm livin the dream. IT IS SO FAST!! Holy cow, downloading at 90 Kbps.........now that is nice.

I know there are people with faster, so don't brag, I'm upgrading from downloads at 2.4 kbps.

:D:D:D:D

Edit- i had to laugh, I told you all not to brag, but here I am braggin........Now that's what you'd call Ironic.......

And all you out there still with 56K......I know your pain, and i am sorry.

isnt the broadband a wonderful thing? after having it for only a short period of time you'll wonder how you were ever able to use dial up in the past for so long. you can download porn stuff so much faster and play multiplayer games over the net! multiplayer anything over the net is REALLY addictive!!!

Yes.......the broadband download speeds are amazing, and fun!!


And i'm afraid you are mistaken, paul kariya, joe sakic, teemu selanne, peter forsber, milan hejduk, and alex tanguay disagree.

I have ADSL for like 3 years now... And I really CANT go back to dialup now, it's just impossible! I'd seriously have phonebills that weigh 20 pounds if I used dialup :) Especially with the swamp around ;)

So congratz, enjoy it, we must have a game of JA together when it comes out :)

Ab man agrees with me though. Hahahahah! Low blow. I really need to learn his name here so I can totally make fun when he leads to Avs to a 19-29 record.

Mwhahahaha! OZZIE OZZIE OZZIE!

I think i'll make a point about getting Broadband for JA's release. But does it really remove lag from online gaming completely? I don't think so......
But thats my 56k talking.......
:p
Must have faster nudity.

Welcome to the REALtime world - where things happen at a normal speed, rather than the click to download - cook dinner, watch TV, and then it's finished speed!!

Yep, all of the above :)

ET Warrior: You've taken your first step into a larger world ;)

oh, and BB: I find it doesn't remove all lag, but it takes out a damn chunk of it! Bear in mind that if you're paying £15 a month for 'any time' internet access, it's only another £3 a week for Broadband (after any setup costs). WELL worth it, trust me.

Well B., negotiations are underway. I am willing to pay extra for BB and the powers that be seem to accept. I reckon BT are still offering a free box and set-up, which could be good.

Yeah alright Sam, calm down fella :rolleyes:
It's just you made it sounds faster than broadband, I didn't know if there was a faster version of ISDN available that's all.

I have 2 channels, so I guess that's 128k. Anyways, that's fast enough right now.

TS, can you get ISDN? It has one or two phone lines w/ it, so you can get, then cancel your phone, and use the ISDN phone line. That's what my dad is thinking of doing.
