|REPLeffect||WRT screen -- I couldn't live without it.|
I'm on dialup, and I need to manage things for work from home.
there is still people on dailup?
|REPLeffect||I went from DSL to dialup :-(|
|krunar||what far out part of the world do you live in?|
|REPLeffect||If you want to live in the country...|
... you make certain sacrifices.
|Zhivago||hmm, probably in the US. :)|
|Zhivago||the US has relatively poor broadband penetration|
|krunar||They got pisspoor telephone cables too|
therefore no DSL
|REPLeffect||I can get broadband here. But it is too expensive.|
|Zhivago||well, being an empire is expensive|
|REPLeffect||I won't pay that much and be capped at 5 meg traffic both ways a month.|
|nyef||REPLeffect: More than $50/month?|
|Zhivago||hmm, I pay $30 for unlimited.|
|nyef||Dare I ask which provider?|
|REPLeffect||Only one available -- Speednet|
(they suck too)
very bad reputation.
|nyef||Yeah, that's typical. Always a monopoly.|
|REPLeffect||Another reason to not pay out the nose.|
So, I'm living with it.
|krunar||At my mother we pay like $40 for 24/1 megabit unlimited, and at my dad I got fiber for $30 100/10 megabit unlimited.|
|Zhivago||another reason for monopolies to be owned by the government|
|REPLeffect||My DSL was pretty nice, and 5 static IPs.|
|Zhivago||and run not-for-profit|
|REPLeffect||If I lived in any decent sized town it would be a different story.|
|krunar||damn america :( they own more then half of the ip-ranged.|
|REPLeffect||Small town of 1000 or so nearby -- they have DSL.|
