Cable, which is pretty fast, but it just decides to die every few days for a couple hours and there's nothing we can do about it.

A 56k that refuses to work at said speed. Plus Jay and I share a connection, so the speed tends to depend on what she's doing at the time :)

Cable is supposedly 50 times faster than a standard 56k, and DSL is 100 times faster than 56k, IIRC.

A 56k, which usually says connected at 112K (which bascially counts for shit), and downloads at an average of 4-5k a second on files.

/me looks at poll results

Well.... at least it's good to see that I'm not the only one who is extremely "deprived" in life (internet connection wise I mean... heh).
:P

My folks have a limited DSL connection they got from Qwest. It's god speed, but it limits you to two hours of uptime at one session. If you use the whole two hours, you gotta wait at least five minutes to reconnect.

That, and it CAN'T GET ANY SORT OF DECENT SPEED OFF OF TELEFRAGGED'S SITES WHICH MEANS I HAVE TO OPEN EVERY NEW THREAD IN A FORUM IN IT'S OWN SEPARATE WINDOW AND IT TAKES FIVE FUCKING MINUTES TO LOAD THE WHOLE SHEBANG AND BY THAT TIME I'M ALREADY SO FUCKING BEHIND THAT EACH THREAD DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE ANYMORE!!!!!!!111

... sorry, had to vent. In short, DW's loading terribly slow on this comp.

I'm stuck with Freeserve on a 56k atm. It is especially gay because it disconnects me every two hours.

We pay £14.99 monthly for free weekend and evening internet calls.

BTW Dewmboy, why is there a none option? How the fuck else qould you be viewing this page....?

Um,

You know what goes here

Maybe he meant people who are logging on from the office/school/library and are too cheap to buy their own 'Net access.

These results are only a snapshot of this particular moment. They are dependant
on any other Internet use on this computer and any delays
on the Internet. To improve accuracy, run the test several times.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Section 1: General Ping Results
A Ping test is the time taken for a server to reply to a request

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Section 4: Packet Loss
50 Ping Requests are sent to your server. The packet loss is measured by how many of the packets don't bounce back to the client. High packet loss may slow down your connection.

50 packets were sent, 50 bounced back; 0% loss (estimated)
Fantastic - no packets dropped!

Well, it's fast enough when it works, but it constantly just shorts out (the same thing affects my stationary phone). One of the reasons why I don't multiplay over the internet.
