Jay-P Vip: My experience with customer/service representatives is like talking to robot script readers, usually put that off till I've actually decided to put in an order. Actually suspect they've saved me a few bucks when I've passed on one of those things that I've just "absolutely have to have" just at the thought of having to deal with sales/service reps. Probably the reason I've been using dial up for 10+ years now, huh?
Oh... I'm not done bleeping yet: Called cricket yesterday, after going through a few menus and having to look up a number or two I finally got to what I thought would be a service rep... got a recording saying they was busy, call back at another time and a hang up. Ma ran off and hid the shooting iron, phone & computer safe for another day.
Will have to give TimeWarner a call after I get my sedative prescription refilled.
garmanma: I'm in Austin, Texas. Thought TimeWarner was a cable company. Wondering about this Roadrunner or Earthlink connection to TimeWarner. Something about a content provider? Thought the cable connected me to the Internet like my dial up does?
BlackSpyder: My understanding of cricket is exactly as you have stated it. The URL you have here is the one I use.
The statistics graph they provide with the software looks like a picket fence with most of the pickets missing. I have yet to see it reach 1 mbps. Sure do wish someone would standardize this bytes/bits thing. Not always sure if the stats I'm getting are in bytes or bits. Have been told anything to do with modems, downloading stuff is in bits but even on these speed test sites 8 bits = byte, don't always make sense.
