Just wondering how many people here still use dial-up. I'll be getting DSL this October (hopefully.)

I have DirecTv DSL.
It's pretty fucking expensive.

Dial-up unfortunately. Once I get out of training and get settled into a permanent assignment, I'll probably look into getting DSL or cable.

DSL here. I used to use dial-up, but that was so slow that it made me want to kill things.

Unless your modem is also your video card, you should have no problem playing FPS games just because you have dialup. Unless you meant playing them online.

Cable modem here. My brother and I have both our computers and the cable modem hooked up to a hub of sorts. It's pretty sweet.

I have Wireless Cable now. I had normal cable back in August but changed because it was cheaper if we had another line (+US$3.75) and we usually have around 2-3 lines in our house.

The speed actually increased though, and it's quite stable even in storms - not quite what I expected.

That's my same situation. Are we twins?

The speed differences are no matter to me. And there is no price difference. The local cable ISP is renowned for being ultra-crappy. And they have a 5 GB per month download limit. That's insanity. The DSL provider doesn't have that, and is renowned for owning.
