What kind of internet service do you have? - Page 2

post #31 of 44
I am on dial up. It is all I can have besides satellite. My husband is a gamer and we were told satellite is bad for gaming. NO cable here no broadband here

Right now we have DSL through a well mobile phone carrier. We have had it 1 1/2 yrs and the company bites as does out connection and price. One day I will pony up the money to high speed satellite connection. But alas last heard it was around 600 or more to get set up for that.

I have Verizon DSL... sometimes it feels like dial-up. :\\

I am ashamed to admit it, but I am still living in the *stone age*



dial up!

Where we live they just dont offer much for internet actually. And if they do its way too over priced and we cant afford it!

Ours is through Alltel so I feel your pain. Ours is very slow no matter what speed they put us at. We are just waiting for the day Bellsouth makes it out this far. My friend has her's through Bellsouth and she says its much better.

Heh. We are waiting for the day our Dish Network contract is up, at which we'll get Comcast cable and internet, and tell Verizon to kiss our... well, you know. We can't even USE the stupid landline because of so much static, so basically we're paying $80 per month *just* for subpar DSL.

I hate Verizon.

I have DSL. I did have cable in the past, and I didn't find it to be any faster. I didn't really notice it was any slower either. What I have noticed is that the companies that offer DSL, like the telephone company for example, offer it at a much better price. Cable is do darn expensive.

Dial-up. It's all I can afford.

I've been using cable for almost nine years, the company has been thru three changes of ownership. The first one was great. After the second took over the level of service dropped. It was especially bad if you used their modem. The third change was for the better.

The phone company does offer DSL but the service area is limited and they don't think our state is worth investing in.

Truthfully, I've had it so long, it works, and I don't see myself changing any time soon.

We got DSL as soon as it became available in our (semi-rural) area. The modem provided was of pretty inferior quality, so I bought another one.
We've had DSL at school (in a major city) for quite a few years, but it's much slower, I suppose because of the number of computers using the line.

I have Cable.

I would not be a happy girl if I had dial-up...even DSL is too slow for me! Of course, we had T3 lines in the dorms so I got very used to those babies bac in the day! Now I have to be satisfied with Cable, which is fine in terms of speed but the company I get it through (and it is a big national company, I think, which starts with "c" and ends with "omcast") is just AWFUL!! Too bad there's no other providers in my area...
