speeds are the same between your dial-up and DSL????? wow your dsl must be slow.
Your Dad is probably right. In the future I would imagine everyone will use satellite.
I've had cable for a couple of years now and I love it. Might have had it go down twice for an hour in that time. My service is 3MB down and 362K up. Find that to be more than enough. My ISP has a deal right now where if you buy the modem for $99 you can get 5MB down but I don't really need it. My package gives me free modem rental included for about $40 a month.
One advantage that DSL has (at least in my area) is that you can have up to 10 hours of dialup per month included. This is great if you are away from home or if the DSL goes down. The speeds are roughly the same.

you think that is a big download for dial-up, the biggest download i've ever done on dial-up was like 255MB and it was Windows Service Pack 2 the full version (i needed this version cause i have a minturture home network, and i only had dial-up at the time, so i thought this was the easist idea)
Arent you all lucky! These people at my place there at the end of my road with the cables but im unsure if they will continue because the flags stop!
I am now downloading as I speak the biggest download on Dial up I have ever taken on!
It will take around 11 hours to complete so overnight tonight should do it.
It may be well worth it but it wont make any money for me. So it isnt like it pays for itself other than keeping the phone free and doing more in less time. The only problem is I have used cable and DSL but I own dial-up so im aggravated.
You all are so lucky!
