    Do you have high speed or are you still hung with dial up?

    Ive been using road runner high speed for a long time now. I wont go back to dial up unless I have to. I was thinking about replacing my cable internet with the sprint internet anywhere card.

    I have BellSouth lite speed, can not watch video's without it stopping every several seconds. On fixed income and can not afford high speed. Maybe in my next life, I will save enough up so I can enjoy high speed when I get older.

    I've had Cablelynx since 2000. Before that was s-l-o-w dialup.
    Also use a cable phone.
    The modem supples our house phones and wireless router.

    DSL with the phone company who also does our cable, pretty nice it's all on the same bill-- cable phone and DSL

    I have mine and John's computers on our network through our router so we can share all our files and printer no matter what computer you are on.

    This is the reason I was asking this question, to see how many people are not able to view the videos that are posted here.

    Thanks for your replys.

    Don't feel alone, Deb. I have dial up, too. The videos take too long to view, for me. Just don't have the patience anymore. :crazy:

    For those of you on dial up, how much are you spending. I get my Cable/Phone/Internet with the same company and I get 3MB download and 1 MB upload for about 25 per month. When I was on dialup I was paying about the same price (maybe 5 bucks cheaper).

    You got a great price!
    Same here about all three with same company, Cable internet (9000 down, 250 up) is $45.
    We don't have but one cable company so they can charge what they like. Out in TX where we lived had 2 cable companies and the prices are lower.

    We have the turtle PeoplePC dialup. If we try to view the videos on the board we would be timed out before it loaded so we just have to guess what is going on. We are supposed to get highspeed here in about 5 years but I will probably be dead by then.
