We cant get broadband in my town.

Daniel ~: Do you have 5mbit? How expensive is that?

SteveI: Is yours 6mbit? How expensive is that?

They need to update my phone exchange before I can get broadband. They updated the phone exchange in the town 70km away. So my town should be getting it in the next 6 months. I hope. :/

Even on 56k, I can still manage to pull down in excess of 5gb every month without fail. And have done for the past 8 months.

Mine is a 4 mbit cable and getting faster in the face of local DSL competition. I'm looking at cheaper hook-ups but it's unlikely as they tend to steer clear of competing with each other in a given area. Currently it's risen from $39.00 to $52.00 a month!

I've been on optimum online cable for about 3 years now, I guess. It has always been 10mbit.

The real performance is pretty cool. The best downloads are from major corporate sites, like microsoft, believe it or not... where I can get a sustained download of over a megabyte per second. I also have VOIP which knocks down some of my bandwidth (~5-10% in my case).

They've jacked up the price on me to $50 a month.... I have been tempted to save $20 to go to Verizon DSL, which was a joke last year at 256kbit. Now, they are getting good @ 1.5mbit, and I think they are going to 3mbit soon.... Still... hard to give up 10mbit.

I have it on good sources that there is a new wave coming to the internet, and the way it's provided. This may sound like an audacious claim, but i have it that something is coming...but i cannot say what, nor do i really understand it.
