    I have DSL and I live right near the signal enhancer, so I get between 150-300 k/s download. I tested my connection and it says that I have 2.5 Megabits/sec connection.

    The best part about my connection is that I have no cap because i live in a semi-rural area, so they don't bother with stopping the connection at 5 or 10 GB/Month. I decided to cloack how much I download in a week, and one week, I downloaded 50 GB.

    Sometimes, my Internet connection is SO TERRIBLE PAINFULLY slow! It's dialup. Which ALSO means we can't get phone calls while I'm on the Net . . . not that we get many phone calls.

    We have two phone lines, so that we can get phone calls while online, since I'm usually on for a long time (I'd be on less if I had a faster connection...Honestly!!) Also it helps when I'm helping someone with computers on the phone, and I can be on the Internet searching the answer as well.

    I get 28.8 with my US Robotics hardware modem, and I can sometimes connect as fast 34.6 with the cheapy Winmodem I also have installed. I use Device Manager to disable the one that I'm not using.

    I use the USR modem most of the time. It gives em a better ping for online gaming than the Winmodem, even at a significantly lower speed.

    The winmodem is V92, which means you can use software to let you know when you have an incoming phone call. But I bought a little gizmo years ago that does the same thing. Catch A Call

    I hardly ever get calls anyway.

    Living in the country has its drawbacks.
