    I now have BROADBAND :D!

    Wow, just got confirmation then! Its all set up! ADSL that is...and wow, what a differnce in speed!

    To think its only 512kbps we have currently, thats 10 times faster then what i've been using! Its also being shared between 2 computers and its still fast!

    I downloaded music at 4kbps...now i'm downloading it at 20kkbps -50kbps. It used to take say 15 - 20min, now its take 2 - 3 min if that. Downloading videos and lenthing MechBgon Microsoft updates arn't a problem anymore! When I get used to this I fear i will never be able to go back to dial up again! Well we have 20gb bandwidth, so if we dont reach that a month it dosn't look like we will be slowed down!

    And if...in time, i find 512kbps to slow, just pay $19 more a month and get 1500kbps! Wow.

    Anyway thats my happy dance

    And my neighbor just left, so I wasn't able to get my free broadband anymore. Verizon is just taking forever, and I used to take comfort in the fact that I could get it from my neighbor. Now I'm forced to use Verizon dial up until they can get me my dsl line.

    High Speed rocks!! I'm glad some co-workers talked me in to it about 5 years ago.

    I'm about to get my brother and father to go to it now. It was a real hassle trying to remember all my old tricks fixing a modem for my dad every time it bugged out when I haven't worked on a modem (or Windows 98) in 5 years.

    Now that you're on the most vulnerable part of the 'interweb' you might want to stop by and visit Steve at www.grc.com for some through vulnerability/stealth testing and suggested settings changes. Don't be afraid, even though his testing is to the core through, it's totaly safe.

    Enjoy your zoom, zoom, zoom!

    EDIT: You'll want to look specifically at the Shields Up section for testing.

    Good idea....and while you're at it, go to www.dslreports.com and tweak up your windows settings to get every ounce of the bandwidth you now have.

    Something I wasn't able to find at GRC was his "How-To" on TCP/IP bindings configuration.

    I'm trying to remember if I got it in 97 or 98. I'm pretty sure it was 97. Still rockin' the same box too, but with a faster processor, lots more memory & more disk. May finally be time to upgrade...

    Started off w/ ISDN. ADSL didn't have its commercial roll-out til a year or two later. Then I switched to DSL.

    Somebody on my block has cable internet and doesn't know how to secure their wireless access point. Sweet.

    Aint that like 1.5mbps?

    1.44 Mbps if I remember right, equivalent to 24 telephone lines. In fact, T-1's were originally designed for phones, not internet. The best part, though, is that 1.44 Mbps is all yours, not shared with everyone on the block like a cable connection.

    Lucky

    AT&T holds a monopoly on this part of our city.
    sprint was going to give me service within 24 hours until they realized that AT^T held my lines and would not allow anybody else to resell any type of phone line related service

    AT & charged 100 bucks and was a 1+ week waiting

    Yes, but usually only in one direction (download), and always with shared bandwidth rather than bespoke bandwidth.

    I first used high speed connections in 1995. First used a modem in 1996. Have never had high speed at home (not counting when living in a college dorm) despite doing consulting work in the computer industry.
