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 have DSL but from about 3:00 to 10:00 at night it slows up. Our provider doesn't have adequate bandwidth for the school kids.
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!
Nice to go up, sure rough going the other way. I tried using dial-up while on vacation using a laptop. You relearn patience.
Diallllll upppppppppp....... [xx(]

I have 56K modem... but can only connect between 29.9 and 32.6... sucks!
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 have high speed through cable, am waiting for them to hook telephone service with it also.
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.
First I had dial up and now I have DSL and I would never go back either!
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.
