Seems everyones plugging broadband (cable or dsl) these days. It would be interesting to know what percentage of you use either or? I was on dial up for about a year and finally switched to broadband and can't believe I actually managed to survive with a dial up connection. Downloading demos and patches at 400kb/s on broadband sure beats the 4kb/s on dial up. If your not on broadband, why not?

I`m on ADSL [img]smile.gif[/img]
Upload tops 128kb/s, download averages 490 kb/s...
But I do still use a 56k sometimes... if I have problems with my ADSL, I can easily tell if it`s a line problem by switching to the dialup... if I have the same problem, it`s the line; if I don`t, then it`s 2 hours on the phone with telstra helpdesk convincing the computer illiterate person on the other end that no it is NOT a problem on my end...

I have broadband, and the difference is amazing.

Trouble is you get complacent about it, and if you ever have to use dial up for anything on another machine, it is soooo frustrating.

Plus with broadband it doesn't matter if I don't log out, or if I leave my machine on constantly, I only pay one price per month and I am connected permanently. Bliss. Plus I get 30mb of web space for my website, upgradeable to IGB I think.

got dsl about a year ago, before that, from netscape v1.0 we used a dial-up. Main reason why we shitched so we could use the net and the phone at the same time and the price finally came down enough so we could afford it. Our connection rate is 256kbs up and down stream.

I use dial-up. But that certainly isn't by choice...
