Y3S THTAS RIGHT TEH PRITCH HE HAS FINALLY GOTTEN CABLE.

I would like to take this opportunity to point out to Freeserve that they can take their overpriced dial-up 33k shit that disconnects every 2 hours mandatory and RAM IT UP THEIR ARSE.

I would also like to wish Darknation all the best as he continues to enjoy their service! Muwahahahaha Mallis!

I would like to thank zarcyb and Airraid for pointing me in the direction of blueyonder.

I would also like to say I just orgasmed as I downloaded all of newstuff in about 4 seconds.

Thanks to Sargebaldy for being there when it happened!

New and improved pritch v2.0 is finally here.

Lucky basrad!!

I'm on a 2 mbit connection SHARED between an entire appartment complex!!! Only because those Sonofon bastards thought that it would be fun to RAISE the price of our shared 4 mbit connection with 300 fucking percent!

And it's not like this is stopping all my asshat neighbours from hogging the bandwitdh with all their peer to peer programs!


Ok, enough exclamation marks for today.

I have cable too, and the best ISP ever. Decent servers give me between 300 and 600 KB/second most of the time, and 980KB is my personal record. The only bad thing are the download limits - 10GB of download in 30 days isn't that much when you have a porn addiction and passwords to Adultbouncer.com.

But anyway, congratulations !

Yup. Cable rules. My city (being the smallest capitol city in Canada) was one of the guinea pigs for testing out hi-speed internet. The phone company and the cable company constantly battling it out for prices. Cable is faster for uploading though. Almost 10 years of cable for me and my friends. :P

My "limit" is 30-35 gigs per month. It's not really enforced unless you REALLY exceed it. I had 120 gigs downloaded one month. That's when I actually got a warning call. :)

Congrats! But don't get lured into downloading unlimited prOn and Warez. Keep it decent.

I have 756Kb ADSL with a "fair use" policy on download capacity. What means that with my use I have no restrictions (lots of mp3 and an occasional movie). But I must say, allways on is addicting as hell

Heh. Blueyonder is good in that you can download as much as you want, but the transfer rates are capped, so you don't the the full benefit of the 512k connection. :/

I have no monthly transfer limit or anything like that, but the connection is slow as hell, around 50-60K down and 60-70K up, at best.

My cable has speed bumps, something it goes at 70, other times at 200 ko/s. I have a 10Gig limit but I never get close to it. If I go above 10 gig, it's something like 1$/10Mo I think so the bill can get pretty spicy.

Anyway congrats Pritch and embrace the wonderfull possibilities that cable can give you :)

The problem with having cable is that you are tempted to download the Doom 3 alpha, whereas with a modem, this desire will be killed by the fact that it'd take a million years.

And that's a problem, because if you don't download the Alpha, you'll be saved from most spoilers that the Alpha could reveal.

Pritch: say goodbye to your social life forever.

sigh Such a waste. Anyway I'm also pleased with my connection, I'm on a node planned for a future subdivision, which is not currently built, so I get some great speeds.

I don't know about you, but I've got cable and I've never been tempted to download the alpha. I do however, download a lot more TV shows than I would without a high speed connection :)

Meh. I'm on a T3 line going at 400mbps. No transfer limit. But...my question is, why do I have a 20meg e-mail account and a 5 meg webspace account?!

heh.

Well, dsl reports puts this connection at anywhere between 385-395kbps d/l and 78-121kbps u/l. Any idea why the upload's fluctuating? Also I've noticed Kazaa slows this down much more than it did on 56k, even when there's no d/l activity. And yes I know Kazaa sux lolz etc.

My cable is 1337, it's Roadrunner. My connect is 1.5 mbps up/down and I have no transfer limits or download limits. They said that if I don't go "overboard" with my server then it won't be a problem, and overboard is like 200 gigs.

Same here. Although I have no download limits. For the past 3 days I've been getting 988.3 KB/second downloads most of the time. Kinda shocking because I usually get around 370 KB/second. I have a feeling it will not last :/

I got cable and at most only get 30-40kb/s. WTF? Then again, Johnstown sucks. :P

(unrelated but the highschool is literally falling apart, the new school is going to suck, and there are NO jobs here. Dammit :P )
