Broadband or Dial-up?

I had DSL for about 7 years now... 1500 down and 768 up... and I was worried about moving from Souther California to Arkansas and not having high speed Internet... Ha!

I myself use broad band, DSL with about the same loading speeds. The wife was trying to talk me in to highspeed lite and I laughed at her, I told her it would really slow down her home shopping sites and junk, then she got worried and said ok we will stay with the regular lol!

Currently, I have 3 mb high speed through cable TV. I'm moving in a few weeks so I don't know what I'll end up with but I know it won't be dial-up.

Dial up but my local phone company changed names and management. Used to be Sprint, but now is Embarq. They called me about 2 weeks ago and said they were offering DSL in my area now. I signed up and they were supposed to ship the hardware to the house, but I haven't seen it yet. I can hardly wait.

I've got Cox's High Speed Internet. Yeah, I took along time with Dial-Up before I made the switch. I don't know what took me so long.

Just curious here... I have satellite (Directv), does anyone here have their internet service through their satellite provider?

Just wondering how good it is and if its worth it.

I had a cable modem for a couple of years, but the price kept going up so I switched to DSL through the local phone company for 1/2of the price. I don’t know what the speeds are, but I can’t see any difference.

Of course, my ‘puter is 7 years old.

It's lookin' like a majority have Broadband... and that's a "good thing". I am finding that is the trend across the U.S., even here in Arkansas.
