i forgot about the other dial-up problems apart from speed - it ties up your phone line, and you're paying by the second!

I hate it, I live in a small town where our internet is slow to begin with. When I go visit friends in a city I always am like wow. The internet is way faster. Here if you live out of town you need dialup and a friend has to use it. Poor guy it can take 5 minutes to load a single page.

You're a dog. may your ISp cap you at 55Kb
Have to thank you, Ken, for that Netlimiter tip a couple of weeks ago, chatting on SevenGadget. Netlimiter really solved my problem, I can now assign the bandwidth how I like.

I can understand you. Can't you use some mobile solution? I mean, when I'm on the road I use my Nokia N95 as a modem and get 3/1 Mbs.

BTW, in my opinion you have the most informative sig showing great community spirit:

Thanks for the signature compliment. Decided to keep it simple instead of a distracting picture one.

I could try the Mobile alternative but we live around hills so signals for cell phones are usually at 1 bar here. Cut out a lot
