I’ll never go back to dial up myself. Which is why I’ve been spending 100 for tv/modem through Comcast every month.


#4

i dont have TV cable, but i dont mind i dlont watch much tv


#5

My cable co. doesnt offer cable internet and FCC regulations wont allow the co. that does offer it cross into my area to provide service. So I guess Im just a screwed pooch. :dunno

dsl is slower than Cable and the dish isn’t an internet provider.

dsl is slower, but i assume he was using dialup. as far as dish, i know “Dish network” isnt persay, but there is such thing (or was such thing if it isnt around anymore) as dish based internet servic. i forget what its called though…

in my experience, there’s no dish internet around here. But i’ve heard it’s like dial up speeds because of satellite transfer lag and the service can go in and out much like satellite tv.

Ive looked into it and I dont kow about speeds, but the equipment cost is about $800. :o I would be super pissed if I bought $800 worth of sattelite equipment and my internet was still slow as hell.
