Dial up may have its advantages


BUT!!!!

DSL (Broadband RULES) :)
PROS
No need to connect, youre always connected
fASTER dOWNLOADS
FAST WEB BROWSING
telephone can be used even when surfing :) the internet.

CONS
Expensive

It is the best thing for home owner for now until t1 or t3 or even T5 becomes more popular which I can
Say( T1= Ultimate & T3 = Supreme Ultimate & T5 = GODLY)

Dial up is slow, but it has it's advantages.

This will be the only way I can hook up to the internet shortly. ADSL or Cable needs a location to connect to, where as dial up just needs a phone line.

Now if you could get ADSL over any phone line as in dial up, wouldn't that be great. I sure do miss that 1.5Mbps/256Kbps connection, which even by standards of some here is slow, it was fast enough for me. It was enough to allow 2 out going connections to work without too much hassle. 3-4 connections weren't a constant thing so I had to adjust my browsing habits then.

Dial up here is at 56 Kbps

Yes, and agree with you.
Me to miss that connection.

With 1.5 or 2Mbps you can upload photos , and enjoy video on demand.

Now I read in an article some time back that any standard copper phone line was only good to 33.6 kps, which is most likely why the 33.6 modem was introduced. The 56k modem I read also was mainly a sales gimmick. But, my modem status tells me I am connected at 44k. I have never gotten higher. I remember on my old 486 that whenever I logged in at 31, I thought I was speeding. :(
Satelite here would cost me $60 a month at least and that is for the cheap hook up. Can't get cable out here in the sticks so dial-up it is. B) Besides, I can watch all my packets log in my copy of Wireshark. High speed would just be a blur I suppose.

Seemed like the thing to do at the time!
