I didn't know they still made modems.

Maybe I'm spoiled, I've had a partial T1 for well over 12 years.

Of course Comcast would get my business if I had no other choice
Lol, well its our only hi-speed option here because Comcast likes to play games (monopoly). Works like this;

Fairpoint (formerly Verizon) and Metrocast doesn't service Comcast Areas, in return Comcast doesn't service there areas (they overlap each other a bit though).

I hate dial-up because it's slow and really annoys me because I'm impatient. I also hate the sound too.

Lol yes, I feel bad that you're stuck with dial-up. I don't know what I'd do if I had to go back to it. ):

The time I was on dial-up (in a city on top of it all), I hated it so much. All I wanted to do is to download music but ONE 4MB music could take up to 20min to complete during that time we couldn't use the phone.

But, you gotta congrats me into getting over 4GB of music that way.

Now that I know the world of High-Speed Internet, I don't wanna look back.
