Im Getting DSL
    #3083746 - 09/02/04 06:31 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Yay! DSL has become available in my area this month and I have already recieved my self install kit. I have to wait till the 7th before it will be activated :thumbdown: It is really hard to wait. There are so many things I miss doing that I did with my cable modem (the last town I lived in had cable modems)

Its going to be better than cable because its up to 1.5mbps down stream and my latst cable modem was only 256kbps... kinda slow when you see how large some of the files are I download :wink:

Has any of you here installed the SBC Yahoo DSL self install kit before?

HAPPY FUCKING HOLIDAYS!

I worked for Verizon DSL tech support for quite a while, it's all the same really. The installation is pretty simple and straight forward.

My cable is about 3 mb/s. I'm not getting DSL any time soon.

I dunno....we're supposedly 768 K downstream, but from what i know (very little)
The *actual* speed will vary with the distance frrom the receiving center and the volume of traffic on the phone system.

Best i've pullled is 196.

Altho i'd fucking love a 3 MBpS line,....hell yeah. :thumbup:

Run a speedtest somewhere, toast.net has one, also pcpitstop.com, or if you're a Verizon customer (sucker!), try infospeed.verizon.net

I don't think those test are all that reliable. I only get about 800 kb/s on those tests,but I always get downloads at 350 kB/s+.

I downloaded linux for my xbox :wink: took 30 minutes on my DSL connection. On dial-up I think (did the math high so its accuracy may not me very accurate) 22hrs would have been the time to download.

Fucking awesome.

I don't know why but it says in the papers that the soonest activation day was the 7th well as far as I can see its not the 7th anywere in this world at this very moment. I could not wait till the 7th to setup everything and finaly today (got the install kit around the 1st) I forgot my point and I hate tyoing while im high so fuck it the point is i have dsl and it feels so good to be back up to speed I have been stuck on 56k for over 1yr and im glad to see its gone!

Fungi_x, IM HiGH BiTCH! (HoNK HoNk)

No shit, i'd love a line like that thru the dorsm.....altho i'd be just as happy with whatever trunk you're on to begin with. :tongue:

Fungi:  Looks about the same as my usual speeds.
