Netlimiter on 50Mb, now thats funny

I like Darknovagundam sig too
The problem was these IPTV sets, they were eating everything they could. Now they are limited to 10 Mbs each. Works perfect.

What is this Onstar you speak of? That fancy vehicle communication thing? I have no clue everyone around me has cars that hardly run, let alone talk. :P I would assume it does.

Going back in Time Win 98 era, finally got dial-up in this rural area of the desert. But only 17 people could be connected to the dial-up server at one time So you had to wait until somebody dis-connected for you to get on So you just set the software to auto-redial for about 100+ times. or you could call all the people you knew with computers to see if their line was busy. If it was you just go over & cut their phone line. Problem solved.

In the Future we will have Laser Beam Internet, Just Wait

Lol, Comcast is the only cable provider in this area, and Comcast isn't the most loved of companies. They probably didn't even know about the program

I was on dial up from 1998 until our exchange was ADSL enabled in 2004. It's a BT Warehouse exchange that then went to ADSL Max in 2006 and isn't being switched to 21 CN until Q4 2011 and that's all we have around here no chance of cable at all.

Dial up was slow I know shortly after going to broadband it went down for some reason and I had to do my Tesco shop via the dial up modem and oh boy was it slow even though at that time I was only getting under half a MB speed whereas now I've gone back to BT I get just under 4 MB and that's probably the best I'll get

a friend of mine used to use those "5x FASTER!!" AoL cd's. when he canceled his sub, they called him. he told them he didn't want their service. long story short, he got 2 free years of internet (+ 180 the day trial).

that has worked for a few people i know. now AoL cant GIVE dialup away... (take advantage of it )
