What type of internet do you guys have?

Postby Tim » Feb 11th, 2012, 12:26 pm

I have to start subscribing to internet again soon. I wanted to know what internet you guys have (cable vs. dsl) and what speed. If you guys have cable, is your cable bandwidth shared with others around you that have cable too? How's the stability and speed? Is it fast enough for online gaming and movie streaming (Netflix)?

Cable is what I use and I recommend it way more than DSL, which I used in the past. You can subscribe to get the triple bonus... Cable TV, Phone, and Internet as a package for a little bit. In the end Cable was the superior choice for me. I am in a pretty well populated part of the city with all apartments all around and my download speeds is pretty good without lag 98% of the time.

Cable is the only way to go unfortunately. Comcast has me by the balls.

I forgot to mention I stream with PlayOn, Hulu, Netflix on multiple devices ie, computer, ps3, xbox, kindle, and ipad. We have 3 computers on all the time and 3 cell phones leeching off comcast and my vent ping still shows 12 on average.

There's multiple speeds for the cable though. Do you guys have an extra fast one?

Nah, I only have the 12Mb/s. My max download speed is about 2MB/s before bandwidth starts getting raped.

25 mb download and upload, $30 a month.

We use Verizon for a LOT of shit (cell phones, landline, internet, etc.) so we got the price driven down, so I have had friends tell me it wasn't that cheap for them.
