    I have, and always had (since November 2006) had AT&T SBC DSL @ 1.5 Mbits/s, which is 160kb/s download speed, 35kb/s upload speed. Only for $19.99, the Express Package. Big grin

    NOTE: Between September and November of 2006 (around there) I was painfully hinged by being disconnected from the Internet. Sad Before that though....for at least 6 months or so....I had the Pro Package ($24.99) @ 3.0 Mbits/s, which is twice the speed. Unfortunately I forgot how that was (and possibly was the reason for my economical downfall in mid-06). But before losing all contact with the world, I was painfully forced to use Dial-Up as a free alternative for a month (@ raluaces, you might remember this during the Hyrule Adventure beta-testing craze).

    So yeah....I'm happily abided with my Internet, am happy with it, and if you laugh at my speeds, then go fall in a ditch. If you happen to still be tied to Dial-Up (Unfortunately AOL still won't stop overpricing poor suc....errr saps with a bloated browser and dial-up) then You should consider upgrading to AT&T or TimeWarner.

    EDIT: Luckily I was kept sane by playing GTA: San Andreas and modding it (if I needed resources, I used the school's internet to download them to my cheapo SanDisk 512MB pendrive, which is still my standard drive to this date 👅)

    lol i love technology. it sure is a *trip* to go back and see what has changed over time. i mean heck, i still remember 4 years ago when i used floppy disks and when 128MB flash drives were considered "rich"... time sure flies.
